New search engine roots out anti-Islamic content for Muslims

- The Washington Times - Monday, July 8, 2013

A search engine that blocks all content that's deemed in conflict with Islamic law just launched, aimed at giving the world's 1.5 billion Muslims an Internet experience that doesn't violate their religious beliefs.

Halagoogling uses search results from Google and Bing but sends them through an "advanced special filtering system that blocks Haram content according to the law of Islam," a company press release stated, as The Tribune reported.

The filter system weeds out all forbidden sites, including "pornography, nudity, gay, lesbian, bisexual, gambling," and others deemed "anti-Islamic content," The Tribune said.

The search engine took years to develop, The Tribune reported.
