Social networking website, Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg is being investigated by Pakistani police under a section of the penal code that makes blasphemy against Muhammad punishable by d-e-a-t-h.
BBC Urdu reports, that Pakistan’s Deputy Attorney General has launched a criminal investigation against Zuckerberg and others in response to the social networking website Facebook hosting a “Draw Muhammad” contest on its site late last month.
According to The Register, petitioner Muhammad Azhar Sidiqque said he’s waiting for the police to contact Interpol about making arrangements for the arrest of Facebook’s owners. The site also says that the Deputy Attorney General told the High Court that Pakistan’s United Nations representative has asked to escalate the issue in the UN General Assembly.
