Pakistanis Launch Muslim Facebook Called Millat Facebook
By on May 28th, 2010

The Pakistani Facebook controversy over the Draw A Mohammad Day page has taken a new twist with some Pakistani developers launching a new site to rival . The site called Millat Facebook (millatfacebook.com) and is created to cater to 1.57 billion Muslims around the world.

The about page of the site says this about Millatfacebook:

Millatfacebook is Pakistan’s very own, first social networking site. A site for Muslims by Muslims where sweet people of other religions are also welcome!!

The site goes on to tell how Facebook has not been listening to complaints and how it is making almost 50% of revenue from Muslim Facebook users.

Earlier this month a Pakistan court had banned access to Facebook due to the Draw A Mohammad Day page, the ban in question will remain in effect till May 31, 2010.

The Millatfacebook or MFB developers are working to add more features to the site to make it similar to those of Facebook. There are several similar features right now including Wall, Friends and more.

As per reports the site already has over 4,300 users in the page few days, most of them are Pakistanis. This number may grow further considering that Pakistani Facebook users are on the lookout to catch up with their Facebook friends and aren’t able to do so.

Don’t expect the same Facebook experience on MFB yet, it still has a long way to match the standards of Facebook, this is also reflected by several current users of the site.

    • http://netnew.tripod.com Abdus Samad

      Already lakh ppl joined and I joined too !

  • waqas

    more than 86000 people joined MFB. thats gr8 and a slap on fb's face..

    • http://sathyabh.at Sathya

      1L in MFB, vs 400 Million+ ( ~ 4000 lakh). A great slap indeed.

      • Noumaan Siddiq

        sathya….i think you dont know….facts & figures…

        FaceBook….was started in 2004….right…

        initially when Mark Zukerberg started….he only had 3000 people in the first month they were from his university Harvard…

        dont you see the huge difference….the Millat Face Book was launched on 25th May,2010 & uptill today 05-06-2010….they have crossed 200,000+ and growing exponentially…

        & it's getting popular not only in Pakistan…but as far as indonesia, morrocco, india, bangladesh,malaysia,canada,uk….& the list goes on & on…

        • http://sathyabh.at Sathya

          When facebook was introduced

          (1) It was meant only for Harvard folks, and later expanded to others

          (2) Social networking was a niche

          (3) Facebook did NOT use/leverage on some other popular social network's brand image to get a jump

          (4) [citation needed] on they have crossed 200,000+ and growing exponentially…

          (5) Please come up with facebook's stats and then see if its really "a great slap".

          (Btw: Its Mark Zuckerberg).

        • Zanna Jay

          Yes…its a huge difference just because Millat Facebook use the popularity of original Facebook own by Mark Zuckerberg..:)..please realize that fact..lol..

      • http://millatfacebook.com Atif

        lol Sathya what a ridiculous argument. mfb admins like all muslims asked fb to follow its own policies when they didn't it was an alternate.

        And it is more difficult to break into a market with a huge giant like fb so MFB infact has done a great job (guess this is a real slap ;)

        get a life dude

  • Mohammad wasim

    Assalam-o-alaikum, Its a good effort, and inform your more friends as more as possible, and pray for our useless islamic rulers may ALLAH show them right way and they take a strong action on it.Aameen

    May ALLAH show us right way and help us to sort out such issues, and in my views its right time to struggle against such acts.

  • Affi

    What the hell is this millatfacebook…

    Why u guys are feeling proud of this site. It's totally copy of facebook. I totally condemns this site. Copy/Pastors never succeeds

    • correct

      lots of scrolling and i found some sensible post.

      • kashif

        agreed with correct,

        thanks qasim…

    • Muhammad

      let me tell u "ITS NOT A COPY OF FACEBOOK"…infact it has more additional features like video chatting….n they r still working on it 2 make it best n mfb has gained popularity and has got many members in few days,by the grace of Allah Almighty as compared to fb (when it was launched)

      • Mehnaz Tamkinath

        u r right…………..:)

    • Zanna Jay

      well..if its not copy…please dont use "Facebook" name on "Millat Facebook". Please have your own trademark. Facebook is very common to Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of Facebook company…

      • http://millatfacebook.com Atif

        it is millatfacebook.com and this domain was available so it is NO COPYRIGHT.

        The reason for having the word facebook in the name is

        Why call it “Facebook”?

        Good question. Actually it is called Millatfacebook and that’s because just like a picture conveys more than a thousand words, it conveys, without speaking a single word what we are about which is: “the rival and alternate Facebook created by Muslims for all the decent people of all faiths to come together and interact in a socially responsible and considerate manner.”

        And we are not against Facebook name but the hate-mongering, Islamophobic and anti-humane policies of the Facebook administration.

  • http://www.millatfacebook.com ATIQ UR REHMAN

    its good thing for pakistan

  • Mildly Amused

    What blatant copyright infringement.

    They didn't even make their own interface but copied it from Facebook!

    Are Pakistanis incapable of creativity?

    It won't be long before Facebook sue.

    • http://millatfacebook.com Atif

      First of all it is not a copy and secondly let FB sue :P

      The colour scheme, the fonts resemble Facebook…why?

      The theme is certainly different, the logos and colour scheme are unique. There are many different, additional and better features. However, there may be a similar feel due to some common basics all social networking platforms have. It’s just like asking Toyota or BMW why they have an accelerator or gear box when Mercedes have them. Well, these are the basic essentials but their designs, models and basically the products are different.
