Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has called for a ban on Facebook for disseminating hate speech against Islam. Imran Khan wrote a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg requesting a ban on Islamophobic content on the social media platform. However, there is no response from Facebook yet.
Imran Khan said that just as Facebook prohibited the Holocaust from questioning and criticizing it, so content related to Islamophobia should be banned. The government of Pakistan and Imran Khan shared their letter on Twitter.
Ban on Popular Holocaust-Related Content
In the letter, Imran wrote: “I want to draw your attention to the cases of growing Islamophobia around the world. Hatred towards Islam is increasing all over the world through social media and in particular Facebook. Imran in his letter, referring to Hitler’s Holocaust against Jews, praised Facebook’s ban on related content.
Imran said – Hate messages should be banned from all over the world
In the last of his letter, Imran Khan called on Mark Zuckerberg for Facebook to stop the growing hate speech against Muslims on social media. Imran wrote that hate messages should be banned completely.
Macron has been accused of promoting Islamophobia
Earlier on Sunday, Imran Khan accused French President Emmanuel Macron of attacking Islam. Imran has come under attack for criticizing Macron’s followers of Islam and defending the cartoonist of the Prophet Mohammed.
Imran Khan had tweeted: “ It is unfortunate that he (Macron) chose the path to promote Islamophobia only when he attacked Islam instead of attacking terrorists. Terrorists, whether Muslims, white supremacists, or Nazi views.
