Islamabad: Pakistani Prime Minister wrote a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg asking for a ban on Islamic hate content, warning that radicalization among Muslims would increase.
In a letter shared by the Pakistani government via Twitter, Imran Khan said that the “growing Islamic hatred” promotes extremism and violence worldwide, especially through social media platforms such as Facebook.
“I hate Islam against Facebook, which I set up for the Holocaust, asking for a similar ban on Islamic hatred,” Khan said.
Facebook said this month it is updating its hate expression policy to ban content that rejects or distorts the Holocaust.
Facebook did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Khan’s letter.
“Hate messages about one person are unacceptable, but I can’t send a message saying that it is acceptable to others,” Khan added. “It reflects the prejudices and prejudices that will promote further evolution.”
In his letter, Khan mentioned the situation in France in which Islam is linked to terrorism.
On Sunday, Cannes said French President Emmanuel Mark Long “attacked Islam” by encouraging the display of a cartoon depicting the prophet Mohammad.
Khan’s remarks came after Mark Long paid tribute to a French history teacher who was beheaded by an Islamic radical who sought revenge for his use of a cartoon depicting the prophet Mohammad in a class on freedom of expression.
