Boy o’ boy! It appears that things are set to get ugly after the Draw Mohammad Day controversy that surfaced last month and led to the social network being banned in Pakistan. The ban was lifted on May 31 and we thought the ugliness of the situation has been long hidden. Not really. Pakistan’s Deputy Attorney General has launched a criminal investigation against the social network’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
Facebook has denied commenting at this turn of events but it appears that the AG is quite, given that a High Court judge ordered the Pakistan Police to lodge an FIR against Mark Zuckerberg. The charges? Well he is being considered an accomplice to the entire thing. If all this is true, he will be charged with Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code which states:
Use of derogatory remark etc, in respect of the Holy Prophet, whoever by words, either spoken or written, or by visible representation, or by any imputation, innuendo, or insinuation, directly or indirectly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life, and shall also be liable for fine.
Truly ugly for the young CEO, he might have never thought of seeing things shape up in this manner. While in Pakistan, the petitioner is eagerly waiting for the national police force to get in touch with Interpol and ensure the arrest of Mark Zuckerberg. Why?
I have absolutely no clue why Mark Zuckerberg is to be targeted here? Could it be because of the insignia that he revealed earlier which bore great resemblance to the Illuminati? That is the only possibility or the reason I see why the law enforcing authorities would associate him to the ugly event. Wonder if Mark is reading this or has read somewhere else, this was the last thing he would want ramming into him after the entire privacy dilemma.
God save him.
