Angry over the removal of certain Islamic pages from Facebook, more than 2.5 million Muslim users are likely to quit the social networking website, according to a media report.
A template letter that has been pasted into numerous Facebook pages accuses founder Mark Zuckerberg and other senior members of Facebook of `ignoring the feelings of more than 2.5million Muslims`.
Most of the fans are allegedly planning to quit Facebook on 21st of July if their demands are not met and join, what looks like a Facebook knockoff, Madina.com. It is a site set up specifically for the Muslim community.
A spokeswoman for Facebook said that the Islamic pages, which included "I love Mohammed" and "Quran Lovers", were taken down because they were being used to `spam` users, which is against the company`s policy.
