“We use a two layer system, first of all the search engine analyses the content fetched by Imhalal.com and all websites that contain explicit material will be filtered out. Some websites will still be fetched and there the secondary, more aggressive and progressive filter kicks in and that is when you will see the haram level.”
Mr Sardeha hopes his website will become the home page in all Muslim households and, despite only going live on September 1, already has plans to expand the product.
He said: “In one month’s time we hope to add Islamic widgets such as prayer time so that you can easily find out when to pray or when you come to the website you will see a quote from the Koran. We are marketing Imhalal as a social home page for Muslim households”. [Lucy Cockcroft/Telegraph.co.uk]
