Imran Khan asks Zuckerberg to ban Islamophobic content on Facebook

In a letter to CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg, Prime Minister Imran Khan has demanded a ban on Islamophobic content on the renowned platform.

PM Imran warned him of an increase in radicalization amongst Muslims and highlighted that the platform encourages extremism and violence across the globe.

“I would ask you (Zuckerberg) to place a similar ban on Islamophobia and hate against Islam for Facebook that you have put in place for the Holocaust,” Khan said in his letter posted by the country’s government on social platforms.

PM Khan further said that publication had been allowed in France of blasphemous cartoons targeting Islam and our Holy Prophet (PBUH), leading to further polarization and marginalization of Muslims in France.

“How will the French distinguish between radical extremist Muslim citizens and the mainstream Muslim citizenry of Islam? We have seen how marginalization inevitably leads to extremism – something the world does not need,” PM questioned.

Imran Khan said the message of hate must be restricted altogether.

On Sunday, PM Imran said that President Emmanuel Macron attacked and hurt sentiments of millions of Muslims after he refused to condemn satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo’s decision to republish blasphemous sketches and paid tribute to a French history teacher, who was killed by an 18-year-old boy for showing blasphemous sketches.
