A couple of days ago it was reported in this newspaper that the Lahore High Court may ban several websites and search engines, including Google, Yahoo, MSN, Amazon, Hotmail, YouTube and Bing. This all came about because a citizen in Bahawalpur decided that he was the sole protector of all things Islamic and filed a writ petition seeking the ban of these sites.

I for one, fully support this ban.

For too long, we have suffered from the immorality of the above mentioned websites. They invade our daily lives with their pornography and blatant disregard for the high moral standards we Pakistanis hold ourselves to. Most of you will argue that these sites are merely search engines not guilty of any offence on their own. Please. Spare me the naiveté. Each one of these websites is simply a hotbed for heathens, an island of idolatry, a den of depravity.

It doesn’t take a genius to prove this point.

The answer lies in the titles themselves. Take for example “Amazon”. Do you know what an “Amazon” is? An Amazon refers to an ancient tribe of warrior women who subjugated all the men and ruled society themselves. The women made all the rules, took part in all conflicts and the men were relegated to being servants and tools for procreation. Can you imagine this living hell?

Where women are allowed to be free, independent and equal if not superior to men? I will not let this catastrophe happen.

Then of course there is Hotmail. To you simple minded folk out there, it might seem that it is merely a tool for you to send and receive mail. A simple non-offensive electronic mailbox. But listen to that word again: “Hotmail”. Doesn’t it sound suspiciously like the term “Hot Male”. I assure you this is no accident. This is proof that Hotmail is trying to turn us all into homosexuals.

What’s so offensive about Google you might ask? Nothing, (if you’re stupid). But if you’re smart enough to read between the lines, you’ll see that Google is in fact a condensed version of the term “Go Ogle”. Is there anything more vile than this? A website giving us complete license to unabashedly stare at our women folk? We Pakistani men have a long and proud tradition of never staring at women in a lewd manner.

If we have started doing it now, it’s simply because of the onslaught of western liberal technology that has destroyed our morals and forced us, for the first time, to view our women as sexual objects.

Don’t even get me started on Yahoo and Bing. They aren’t even complete words. They are just noises and exclamations. Exclamations of joy made by the Devil every time you click on them.

This time we were lucky that we have the chap from Bahawalpur who filed a petition to save us. Next time we might not be so lucky.

    I don’t understand why are you emphsising on Bahawalpur so much. Is this that mentality of some foolish people of big cities that people in smaller cities know nothing, only you guys know how and why to use internet, the people of smaller cities are ‘Paindoos’. One can only laugh at this mentality. Don’t disparage somebody.

    To add I don;t support the ban. Recommend

The possible ban on the websites mention is I must say utter non-sense and the gentleman from Bahawalpur who submitted the petition against these websites thinking he is the sole-warrior left to protect Islamic prestige needs to be educated about how the internet works and why these websites are not responsible for blasphemy.

    There is no point in taking appreciation away from you for this beautifully tailoured piece of intellectual sarcasm but you did not produce a valid argument for not banning blasphemous contents on these above-mentioned sites. I, for one, is in favour of banning the Western culture and traditions that go against our religion but the import of technology and science is beneficial. Cars, mobile phones and computers are just a few important things that West invented and without these commodities, our current worldly life is unimaginable. But coming to my point, no thing can be more sacred in the eyes of a Muslim than the love, respect and reverence for Holy Prophet [Peace be Upon Him]. So if some company is attacking our Prophet, we should wake up as Muslims and taste them their own medicine. Ban them until they realize their mistake. This is not freedom of speech. Hurting other feelings directely should not be termed as anyone else’s liberty. I am not against the use of technology. I fully appreciate the West for their commendable achievements in science. But, as such events happen, use AltaVista instead of Google for instance.Recommend

    Banning a search engine. For crying out loud, when will this madness end?

    I do not support blasphemous content, but please also remember that the internet is a free place – if you find something offensive please just do not go look at it! That’s what the rest of the educated world does, and I imagine we’d benefit a great deal by doing the same.Recommend

    Another thing thats makes me sick to my stomach is that everyone these days debates about zionist, dajjals, and other theories, claiming that the public is being brainwashed, as the author mentions amazon. As far as the banning of sites is concerned, once again, the pakistani courts and people in power, try to put a lid on the problem, not once trying to become a part of the solution and educating the masses about what can be done, rather the pakistani’s for God only knows what reason, tend to act as the protectors of Islam, why dont these people understand, that its Allah’s religion, and He will protect it. Most of the masses who preach these zionist and all such stupid uncultured facts about america and these websites, dont even practise the religion they try to uphold.Recommend

    A very good article ‘I support the Internet bans’ by Omar Bilal. After reading it one feels that the Lahore High Court should ban the entire Internet not just a few sites. One remembers the time when the Mullahs were up in arms when PTV started showing ladies matches from Wimbledon; they objected that the ladies were wearing ‘indecent’ dresses. Indication that the Mullahs were looking more at the dresses worn and the bared legs rather than the matches being played! That good citizen from Bahawalpur should be given a medal of honour for trying to protect Islam; we need a few more like him. But then is it his fault? The late Ibne Insha once wrote that he was not annoyed at the fact that in Pakistan even the educated seek treatment for piles through talismans (Taweez) and fake Pirs. What annoyed him was that they got better by using these talismans! Three cheers for the Lahore High Court for saving Islam! Had it not been so vigilant Islam might just have disappeared from the face of the Earth.Recommend

    57 Muslim countries not able to make a single search engine that compete yahoo,google or bing. we need to work hard. specially those countries which have resources, like Pakistan, Iran, our all Gulf areas. we can adopt new technologies. i have an example of China. they never rely on google, or any westron networks like CNN. they have their own internet system. more thrn 50% webs are in Chines languages. we need to avoid english and learn 3 main languages as i think 1, Arabic, Chines, French. these languages, we need to learn for developing. i am not against english but when we see history before 1887 war east india company start urdu colleges here for change our language because our all education stuff was in Persian. Now all old book of Muslim not in english and all new book mostly not in english they are in french or Arabic. we need to learn different languages as well.
    i see we all in race of english learning. this is important for compete but not at all. last few decays when people feel DARD but it change in Pain.

    ‘This time we were lucky that we have the chap from Bahawalpur who filed a petition to save us’ . I mean for god’s sake at least get the tense and structure of the sentence right!

    I suggest that the author sticks to playing an instrument rather than expressing ill-fated, childish, and ridiculously myopic viewpoints that are a slap on intellectual (or adult in your case) journalism.

I view it as a continuation of the impious tradition that has made futile attempts at shaking people’s sacred and established views. These include satanic notions like the so called Laws of Gravitation, Motion, Genetics etc., On the theoretical side, they have been spinning untruths like Humanism, Equity, Non-violence, Democracy .. so on and so forth.

    You really think that banning Google in Lahore will cause the company such losses that it will start screening content?

    Google will not “realize its mistake”. It will do nothing.

    And in the meantime, the world will ridicule us for being either immature or authoritarian (if they don’t know the ban is actually popular!).

    Punjab, on the other hand, will lose plenty, as you note. It is Punjab that will eventually “realize its mistake”. So do it now.

    Where women are allowed to be free, independent and equal if not superior to men? I will not let this catastrophe happen.

    ouch… what kind of a male chauvinistic statement is this!? To think that letting women to be free and independent is catastrophic!? After reading this I really doubt you meant what you said about not looking at ‘your women’ as sexual objects… it’s a shame…Recommend

    The way you have described all the websites, well it is simply brilliant. However, the sarcasm behind your article is what we have been missing. People coming up with iPhone or iPad…here we are still filing petitions over “Go Ogle”!Recommend
