Pakistan blocks 'blasphemous' YouTube

We read:

"PAKISTAN has ordered all internet service providers to block the YouTube website for containing "blasphemous" content and material considered offensive to Islam, officials said.

An inter-ministerial committee has decided to block YouTube because it contained "blasphemous content, videos and documents," a government official told AFP. "The site will remain blocked 'til further orders," he said.

Other officials said the site had been blocked because it contained controversial sketches of the Prophet Mohammed which were republished by Danish newspapers earlier this month.


Christians regularly take all sorts of abuse hurled at them by Leftists and others -- and survive with faith undimmed. But Muslims apparently can't take anything negative at all. What does that say about the maturity of the two groups and their confidence in their faith?
