Social networking site, Facebook has suspended official page of the Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) Karachi and accounts of other party activists over supporting voice of oppressed Kashmiris.
The JI Karachi lamented the social media authorities for bringing down the Karachi chapter’s official page over raising voice for Kashmiris facing strict Indian atrocities.
The party said that over 0.5 million users were linked with the JI Karachi Facebook page.
“Other than that several accounts of the party sympathizers were also suspended,” it said in a statement.
They demanded of the government to take strict actions against the Facebook authorities for suspending their accounts.
In his post on micro blogging site, Twitter, the Karachi Chief of JI, Hafiz Naeem Ur Rehman said, “Facebook is earning Billions of Dollars from Pakistan Business Market while Indian Lobby present in Dehli FB Office, suspending, blocking and disabling Pakistanis & Kashmiris account because of support for oppressed Kashmiris.”

He, in his another post wrote, “Facebook trying to restrict Pakistani Voices in solidarity with Kashmiris. Thousands of FB accounts including JI Karachi FB page (more than half a million following) disabled because of supporting Kashmiris.”
Earlier, Pakistan and Twitter administration had reached an agreement over the issue of accounts’ suspension over echoing the voice of the people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJK).
The agreement made an end to the Indian monopoly on the social media platform as the Twitter administration agreed for not unilaterally suspending or terminating the accounts of Pakistani users in future.
National Information Technology Board (NITB) chief executive officer Sabahat Ali Shah and Twitter high-level officials held talks over the move which is tantamount to suppressing the freedom of voice of Pakistanis just after the illegal annexation of occupied Jammu and Kashmir on August 5.
