    It also issued a rule asking the government to explain within four weeks why it should not be directed to block permanently the sites on the social website facebook and other interest sites for hurting religious sentiment.

    Is it for censoring anti islamic pages or anti awami league pages? and how they will identify who opened those pages as it is unlikely facebook will provide those info!!!

    It seems like same drama that of Indian HC.

    There are 5 Bangladeshi atheist pages in FB!

    They do not reason atheism but make fun of other religion

    like posting insulting photos of Muhammad (pbuh) or making fun of Hindu myth.

    Someone filed a case against those and Court ordered them to be blocked..

    I know one Asif Mohiuddin who was arrested earlier for another reason makes fun of Islam.....

    Just curious do they make any fun on Christianity??? If not my strong feeling is that those pages are funded by Christian fundamentalists of USA. I have encountered many such page and people. They specially take this strategy where christian penetration is very low. So they try to make people away from Islam by the name of atheism and doing lots of mockery. If you try to bring Christianity they will say I do not believe in it. Do not bring it. But they will make the hell out of Islam by making lots of insulting comments.

    "Burn the quran day" in 2010 opened a similar type of parallel page which was in reality funded by the Florida church which organized it.

    Don't get me wrong, i hate atheists myself, but freedom of speech should prevail over an opinion. All religion is nothing but an opinion. Atheism itself is a cult, and their practices are of bashing other religion. Muslims in Bangladesh mock hindu gods, there is no outcry on that. But bunch of chaps start bashing islam in an international social media page and the hell breaks lose. If people are so offended by it, then they should stop joining it or avoid the pages. Any person should have the freedom to express his opinion and believe in whatever they like, these groups are simply arguing about the existence of god. Whats next for the government? ban atheist sites? after that different political ideologies? good job on supporting censorship.....this is how fascism starts.
