The episode is almost similar as before. Way back in early 2010, after Rais Yatim the telco, culture minister complaints about Twitter, Facebook and e-mail, many youths, tech savvy people and even some politicians of both sides went in and whack Rais a.k.a Ayah Dino upside down. Many agreed that it clearly violated the no-censorship rule that it was agreed upon during the inception of the Multimedia Super Corridor in the mid-1990s.
Currently in Malaysia, there are 8.5 million Facebook users, one of the top nations that uses this social network besides Friendster and MySpace.
On December 7, former Menteri Besar of Perlis Shahidan Kassim wants Facebook ban for national security interest.
