    No Cypheros, it is not so. Even Islam falls into the first category. It does not preach violence in any form.

    PRMan.. man, it's due to people like you that Islam gets a bad name. If you just had to go around quoting the verses you should have done it in context. What you have written gives an incomplete (and I should add totally incorrect!) interpretation.

    Coming back to the topic, first of all, DO NOT turn everything into a 'Muslims vs Others' debate. The Pakistan government (and not the entire Muslim community!) banned the sites cause they felt some of the content was offensive. Did I find it offensive? As a Muslim, I may have. But that doesn't mean I'm going to go around demanding the entire site be blocked. I would just report that page, as abusive (how many of you actually did this before jumping onto the block the site bandwagon!) and not visit it again. That does not in any way mean that I'm not against it! It's just that everyone has the right to express themselves.

    There is a lot of stuff on the net which maybe offensive to a lot of people, you can't just go around blocking the entire internet.

    PS: To all those saying that it's none of my business, yeah well, maybe not. That was just my opinion, which I can express as I have freedom of expression. If you disagree, you can ignore this.
