Reports are coming in that the creator of the Facebook Page that promoted Draw Mohammad Day, Molly Norris has apologized the Muslim world according to Dawn News. This is quite a good sign to cool off the angry Muslim population of Facebook, especially in Pakistan where the social network has been blocked.
The page currently has close to 90,000 users and Molly has very clearly stated that she has nothing to do with the caricatures being drawn and that most of the images there are obscene and insulting to the Muslim Faith. In a statement, she said:
I never started a Facebook page; I never set up any place for people to send drawings to and I never received any drawings
And then apologized:
I apologize to people of Muslim faith and ask that this ‘day’ be called off…
I appreciate Molly stepping forward and doing this, at least it clarifies that the page had been taken over by hateful elements and abused. I just hope Facebook acts a bit more responsibly now and removed it totally.
