A Pakistani court has threatened social media giant Facebook to censor and ban blasphemous content that insults Islam. The country’s investigation agency has said that it wants all offensive content on Facebook to be blocked and is also seeking Interpol’s help to identify this “blasphemous” content. (I really want to know what they are smoking!) 

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has sent a formal request to Facebook however; the social media company has not yet responded. A senior Pakistani diplomat in Washington was asked to get in touch with Facebook to seek the required information under the US Right to Information law.

Pakistan's interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan has requested Facebook to comply with their requests and said "I hope that the management of Facebook will respect the religious sentiments of 200 million Pakistanis and tens of millions of users of Facebook in Pakistan and will cooperate in that regard," he was quoted as saying in a ministry statement.

Earlier this week, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif also voiced his concerns regarding the “blasphemous content” on social media and also described it in a tweet as "unpardonable offence".

Pakistan has repeatedly blocked social media websites and pornographic sites in the past citing anti-Islamic content as the cause. In 2010 Pakistani courts also ordered a total ban on Facebook as parody pictures of Prophet Muhammad were shared on the popular social networking website.
