Facebook removes 85 percent of ‘blasphemous material’ on request – Pakistan’s interior ministry

Facebook has removed 85 percent of ‘blasphemous’ content from its social networking site after a request from the government of Pakistan, the country’s Interior Ministry has told the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

Interior Secretary Arif Khan told the court on Monday that Facebook agreed to its request to help the government eliminate blasphemous content and only 15 percent of such material remains on the site, reported The Express Tribune.

The details were provided during the hearing of a case about the prevalence of sacrilegious content on social media. The court had earlier ordered the government take action against anti-Islamic content.

The Pakistani government contacted Facebook earlier this month and warned of repercussions if it did not oblige with its demand. Officials claimed that Facebook had agreed  to send a team to Pakistan to address concerns over “blasphemous and objectionable” content on its site. FULL STORY
