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.

Abdul Kareem, one of the Egyptian bloggers, recently been released from prison after four years and 10 days. Crime ?

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.
