Ringtone download 'un-Islamic', militants enforce ban

More fun…. 😉

Pro-Taliban militants have forced shopkeepers in Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province to ban the “un-Islamic practice” of downloading and storing ring-tones in cellular phones, with a Rs 10,000 fine for violators.

Two months ago, unknown militants issued threatening letters to shop owners in the market in Inayat Kalay, warning them to shut down their “un-Islamic businesses” or face bomb attacks.

Militants bombed a cellular phone market a few days ago in Inayat Kalay, around seven kilometres from Khar. The market housed 30 shops dealing in cellular phones.
