Pakistan: Websites to face anti-Islam checks

So long as the Islamunism stays over there!!

Pakistan will start monitoring seven major websites, including Google, Yahoo and Amazon, for sacrilegious content, while blocking links to 17 lesser-known sites it deems offensive to Muslims, including pages within YouTube.

The move, which came in response to a court order, follows last month's temporary ban on Facebook following a competition to draw the Prophet Mohamed.

The ban drew both praise and condemnation in a country that has struggled to figure out how strict a version of Islam it should follow. The sites to be monitored also include MSN, Hotmail, YouTube and Bing.
