Pakistan's PM asks Facebook to ban Islamophobic content

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has written a letter to Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, asking him to put a ban on Islamophobic content. In a letter, Mr Khan said "Growing Islamophobia" was encouraging "Hate, extremism and violence... especially through the use of social media". In a letter which he published on Twitter, Mr Khan referred to a recent decision by Facebook to ban any content that denies or distorts the Holocaust. "Given the rampant abuse and vilification of Muslims on social media platforms, 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," he said. "The message of hate must be banned in total - one cannot send a message that while hate messages against some are unacceptable, these are acceptable against others."
