Facebook

Our Facebook page is blocked in Pakistan. Earlier The Terrorland on Facebook had hacked by the cyber-wing of Pakistan's secret agency, ISI. We're so sorry but hope we'll get it back

Goodbye! While writing the first draft of history, we've done our best, people and God will do the rest. Undeclared worst military dictator Gen Ashfaq Pervez Kayani has given final kick to freedom of expression in Pakistan! After latest attack, we don't want to put lives of Habib Sulemani, his family & neighbors in further danger. Therefore, we're putting a full-stop before our investigative & critical reports about the junta. Adieu! - The Terrorland
Earlier on March 12, 2013 we had this post

Hi everybody,

Our Facebook posts got over 800.000 clicks; despite being blocked in Pakistan, our group blogs got over 200,000 clicks; hundreds of thousands of people have visited other social media pages of The Terrorland including Google Groups and Twitter. Many websites and blogs have lifted our blogs and posts and this process is going on everyday. Thus millions of people have come across our message directly or indirectly despite a blackout in the mainstream media, and criminal silence of the Pakistani regime and Supreme Court.

Three years ago, when ISI declared Habib Sulemani a 'traitor' and attacked his family and himself, Pakistan's mainstream media was silenced in a systematic way. There were propaganda of every kind from the stooges of the ISI, MI and MQM.

In such a situation, we started the blogs from hiding and then followed these social media pages to give Mr. Sulemani and his family a voice. Today The Terrorland blog has turned into an intellectual-revolution, not only in the political (and social) arena of Pakistan but the entire world.

Thank you very much for supporting our cause despite the apparent risks! We're seeking justice, peace and prosperity in the society so that Pakistan gets global respect as a part of the world at large.

The intellectual, social, economical and political awareness is spreading with the speed of light. Now it doesn't matter if we go on with seldom posts or stop right here.

Thanks again,

The Terrorland Team

  1. In a surprising move, Pakistan noted a sharp increase in requests made to Facebook to restrict or remove content from the social media network and information on information on user data in the second half of 2013, according to information released by the company on Friday.

    Ranked according to content restriction requests, Pakistan (162 requests) came behind India (4,765 requests) and Turkey (2,014 request) who asked Facebook to restrict or remove content on the grounds that it violates local law. This is the first time the social media network has released any data on governments asking it to restrict or remove content.

    Facebook also released information about requests made by various governments seeking information on user data or their accounts on the social media network.

    According to the information released, Pakistan made 126 requests for user data (referencing 163 user accounts) in the second half of 2013. This was in stark contrast to the 35 such requests (referencing 47 user accounts) it had made in the first half of the year, registering a significant jump of 360%.

    Ranked according to the number of requests made for user data, Pakistan ranked 20th on the list which was topped by US (12,598), India (3,598) and the UK (1,906).

    Of the requests made from July to December 2013, Facebook provided the government with at least some information on 60 requests, comprising 48% of the requests made. In the first half of 2013, however, Facebook had complied with 77% of such requests.

    “When we receive a government request seeking to enforce those laws, we review it with care, and, even where we conclude that it is legally sufficient, we only restrict access to content in the requesting country,” the Facebook statement said. “We do not remove content from our service entirely unless we determine that it violates our community standards.”

    The statement also explained that Facebook took a similar approach when it came to request for account information, however, when they did provide information, in most instances they shared only basic information, such as name and IP address.

    Names and IP addresses though may sometimes be enough for governments to track those account holders to physical addresses.
