 2.5 million Muslims have threatened to leave Facebook because their feelings are hurt



by Joseph Ernest July 16, 2010

 Newscast Media -- Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has been accused by 2.5 million Muslims of ignoring their feelings, and have threatened to leave if Facebook does not reinstate their pages that were taken down. The Muslims threatened to join the social newtwork 'madina.com' which is a Muslim network.


A letter written by the Muslims to Zuckerberg read, "Although you have attended the world's best communication skills courses you have been most successful in growing great hatred and hostility between you and Muslims around the world, but seriously this time you have caused an almost unrepairable damage."
The letter also accused Zuckerberg of "Ignoring the feelings of 2.5 million Muslims."


The letter also accused Facebook of "irresponsible behavior" for allowing "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day". According to Muslims, there is one line in the Quran which is commonly taken to mean that it is impossible for human hands to recreate their Prophet Mohammed's likeness. To attempt to do so is an insult to Allah, it is believed.

A spokesperson for Facebook said that the Islamic pages, which included "I love Mohammed" and "Quran Lovers", were taken down because they were being used to 'spam' users, which is against the company's policy.  Add Comments>>
