A Muslim search engine that blocks forbidden content “according to Islamic law” was launched today, a press release stated.
‘Halalgoogling’ fetches results from leading search engines such as Google and Bing and has a built-in “advanced special filtering system that blocks Haram content according to the Law of Islam”, the press release said.
According to the report, a special and unique filter system excludes forbidden content from its search results such as “pornography, nudity, gay, lesbian, bisexual, gambling, anti-Islamic content”.
According to the report, a team of ‘internet experts’ all around the world had been working for years on the project. The need for such a search engine arose with 1.5 billion Muslims around the world worrying about the content provided over the internet to their children and even themselves.
