In a letter to Mark Zuckerberg, the prime minister praised Facebook’s ban on criticism of the Holocaust and called for a similar ban on Islamophobic and anti-Islamic content.
The Prime Minister said that like the Holocaust, today Muslims are also being targeted in different countries of the world.
He referred to other discriminatory laws in India, including the law depriving Muslims of citizenship, saying that Muslims in India were being killed and blamed for spreading corona, which was the result of Islamophobia.
Referring to France, the Prime Minister wrote that in France, Islam is being linked to terrorism and insulting sketches are being allowed to be published, these steps will isolate French Muslims and further increase extremism.
Imran Khan demanded from Mark Zucker that just as Facebook has banned the Holocaust, anti-Islamic and Islamophobic content should be stopped and it should not be allowed to be published on Facebook.
