Blasphemy on Facebook: Pakistan controversy continues

Access to Facebook may have been restored in Pakistan, but with a court case pending, the controversy is yet to go away. A user of the social networking website launched a contest called 'Everybody Draw Mohammed Day' to promote freedom of expression. But any depiction of the Prophet, even those meant with good intentions, are highly offensive to Muslims. The Pakistani courts want the government to introduce a system where websites would be accessible but any blasphemous content would be blocked.
