Pak PM Imran Khan to Mark Zuckerberg: Ban Islamophobic content on Facebook

Pakistan PM Imran Khan writes letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg seeking a ban on Islamophobic content, similar to the prohibition put for the Holocaust, on the social networking site. He also warned of an increase in radicalisation amongst Muslims.

Imran Khan shared the letter on Twitter, saying that "growing Islamophobia" is "encouraging extremism and violence across the world and especially through social media platforms such as Facebook".

"I appreciate your taking the step to rightly ban any posting that criticises or questions the Holocaust, which was the culmination of the Nazi pogrom of the Jews in Germany and across Europe as Nazis spread across Europe," Imran Khan said in his letter to Facebook.

"I would ask you to place a similar ban on Islamophobia and hate against Islam for Facebook that you have put in place for the Holocaust," Imran Khan wrote.
