Foundation is the most important aspect of any structure; be it business, personal or construction. If you basics are right no matter where you head, all criticism and anti-tones will be unsolicited. Same rules apply when it comes to blogging platform. Today, Internet has become so indispensable in human’s life that most of the communications, meets, discussion are leveraging on it. This has given a birth to a new form of independent communication platform “Blog”.

Millions of blogs are currently trying to consume the bandwidth of Internet as much as possible. Multiple flavors of such blogs are addressing various issues across the globe uncensored and its own style of understanding. Apparently, corporate houses, companies and even governments are becoming possessive towards such attacking contents. As a results, all relevant blogging contents are getting screened against the law and imprisonment these days.

Relatively, a recent incident of Abdul Kareem shed light on how blog contents can be taken so seriously that it can make you to land up in jail for many years. Abdul Kareem, one of the Egyptian bloggers, recently been released from prison after four years and 10 days. Crime ? Abdul was sentenced in 2006 for for expressing his views on his blogs against religion and the leadership of Egypt. He was critical of, among other things, Egypt’s treatment of women and of its Coptic Christian minority. Supporters report that during those four years, Amer was tortured, beaten, attacked by other prisoners, disowned by his family and had his books, letters and personal effects taken away.

Though Kareem Amer was the longest-imprisoned blogger known, detained for most of the history of this young phenomenon called Social Media, he was not alone. As per Reporters Sans frontiers, an international media watchdog organization, more than 151 people were sentenced for prison in 2009 due to the content of their blogs. This figure is nearly 3 folds increase compare to 2008 when blogs were not taken a concrete business model.

Besides sentenced there was also an incident of death of an Iranian blogger while he was in prison due to content of his blog.

A report by international media watchdog organization Reporters Sans Frontières last year found that there were 151 people in prison around the world because of the contents of their blogs in 2009, a nearly three-fold increase over 2008. He was sentenced in 2008 to 30 months in prison for “insulting Islamic Republic Leaders” but died under mysterious and allegedly abusive circumstances after just six months of detention.

Every nation has its own set of rules to have monitoring control over the internet and its contents. Although there are many tools and applications which allow you to start your blogs in just few minutes, it’s a undefined territory of offense which need to be handled by bloggers very astutely.
