Interior Minister Ch Nisar Ali Khan has stated that 45 websites and 65 Facebook pages containing blasphemous content have been blocked in Pakistan in the last two days.

Addressing a press conference here on Tuesday, Nisar said that social networking giant Facebook has agreed to address Pakistan’s concern on the issue of blasphemy. “We are going to find a permanent solution for this issue. There is nothing more precious to us than our faith,” he claimed.

“Anyone can turn violent after seeing the sacrilegious content,” he asserted. The minister said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has commended the efforts being made to block blasphemous content. “We have also written a letter to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in order to evolve a consensus among Muslim nations on blasphemy,” he said.
