The pages that were recently removed from Facebook are Facebook.com/Rassoul.Allaah, Facebook.com/Logo.Ramadan, Facebook.com/Love.Mohammed and Facebook.com/Quran.Lovers. Together these pages had reportedly received about 2.5 million ‘likes’ from Facebook users.

“Only a few weeks after your irresponsible behaviour during the Everybody Draw Mohammed Day events you most aggressively removed four of the largest Islamic Facebook Pages of total fans/likes over 2.5 million Facebook members. That happened on the morning of Thursday 8th July, 2010. These four Facebook pages were totally peaceful and free of any hate speech, but you removed it ignoring the feelings of more than 2.5 Million Facebook Muslims and disrespecting over 1.5 Billion Muslims worldwide,” the group has said in an open message issued to Facebook.

    This is interesting!!!. In all probabilities, Facebook will apologies and reinstate the pages.
