Know they not that for those who oppose Allah and His Messenger is the Fire of Hell?― wherein they shall dwell. That is the supreme disgrace. (Surah At-Taubah 63) The Holy Quran.

That was true and proved coz first denish cartoonist is die by fire. Belive on Allah and don't kill yourself. Should read Holy Quran if want to see truth and be a muslim to avoid burn in Hell. After read full Holy Quran it is your choice that you belive it or not but Quran will not force you that you should be a muslim. Islam is not religion of force. Make your current and after dead life Better. Allah show you truth (Ameen) Allah Hafiz.

Musharraf=Bush's buddy. Just like Bush is best friends with Putin. Don't you just love the people he makes friends with.

I'm sure the bombers are on standby.

Is it just because I'm British that I find that incredibly sarcastic reply hilarious? :P

It'd be much easier for them to block all sites and only allows the ones they approved. I've got to go over there as a consultant and show them how site restriction is done. I would also recommend blocking non-approved proxies.

Actually, regardless of my own beliefs, I have to commend him for having the guts to do this if he really believes there to be blasphemous content on the site.

lol, i just used kproxy and can access youtube just fine... GOD bless the internet, there is nothing u can ban here... its all open.. just browse away...

This SUCKS!!!!

Altough with my ISP Youtube still works :d

*EDIT* Anyone tell me a good proxy or proxy software (i hope this is not considered illegal)

but apparently a 50 y/o man can be getting married n having sex with a 9 year old muslim girl because its normal for them? religion = blasphemy

That's right... he has to be 54 and she has to be 6. I have no problem with spirituality, but religions along with their crazed leaders and radical followers are inherently intolerant and in many cases, just plain evil.

see...every culture has a different mindset......that's tribal culture you're looking at...don't start assuming that the whole pakistani population is in favour of that ****...

hell...by looking at your logic...anal sex with men could also be considered normal in your country...surprise! it is!!!

you need to stop looking at the rest of the world with that western mindset of yours...

uhh...that link you posted up there...is based upon books such as the "sahih-al-hadith" which is supposededly the utterances of Prophet Mohammed memorized by his so-called "followers"....these books are utter bullsh!t as they were written 200 YEARS after the death of the prophet...could you even try to even recall what you said last year to someone without making an error? i didn't think so...

hence...before posting your flawed assumptions...try to actually think with an open mind and do some research.

I did, and here is more. My whole point is that these man-made religions are essentially evil from the top-down. These religious leaders are no better than any other person and they have nothing to do with spirituality or even a god. Mohamed was just the typical pedophile. We have these types of religious "leaders" in the modern world too in all religions.
