Draw Mohammed Day

What started out as a cartoonist's call to action against censorship -- an open invitation to submit caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad -- has led to death threats, a court order to temporarily block parts of the website in Pakistan and a call for a boycott of Facebook to protest what Muslims believe is blasphemy. "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!" began last month as the brainchild of a Seattle-based cartoonist named Molly Norris, who was appalled by Comedy Central's decision to censor an episode of "South Park" that depicted Muhammad in a bear costume. Now the day is almost upon us, and Norris herself has withdrawn from the cause -- but she says she's glad her efforts encouraged others to speak out. http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/05/19/facebook-fracas-breaks-everybody-draw-mohammad-day/

I strongly condemn this from the core of my heart. I myself living in Pakistan, know very well the feelings of Muslims. I really condemn this whatever had happened. And now that i heard yesterday that the cartoonist had apologized the Muslim nation all around the world regarding this. So, facebook ban and taking a strong action against this was must.
