The block order was followed by the complain on the Facebook group for “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day“. The group was going on a contest on 20th May, and had become a target for protest in Pakistan and Today Islamic Lawyers filed an order for a full suspension of Facebook. Previously only the pages were blocked. The group is believed to have more than 43,000 supporters.
