nofacebook profile spoofIn response to the threatened boycott by some 2.5 million Muslims irate over the alleged deletion of four Islamic pages, Facebook has announced that it will release a new version of its networking site for Muslim women only. The new version – which is expected to be most popular in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Afghanistan – will be called “Nofacebook” and will be available only when the women are accompanied by a male relative.

A company spokesman said that Nofacebook should be available by the start of Ramadan so that “Muslim women can find a place to share burqa patterns and niqab fabrics.” Facebook promised to shut the site down immediately upon request by the women’s husbands and hoped that its move would appease Islamists “so no one would be bombed.”
