London, May 22 (ANI): Pakistan's former president general Pervez Musharraf has expressed support for the federal government's decision to block access to the social networking sites Facebook and Twitter after an online group called on people to draw the Prophet Muhammed.

In an interview given to CNN's Situation Room programme, Musharraf said: "You cannot have photographs of the Prophet Muhammed -- leave aside going for cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed."

"It's most unfortunate.We must understand, these are sensitive issues. And for the sake of independence of media, liberty of speech, we cannot hurt sensitivities of millions of people," he added. (ANI)
