According to the Interior Ministry, Islamabad High Court has been informed that Facebook has removed almost 85% of the controversial content which was earlier under the spotlight. The High Court had demanded the removal of all such content and the arresting of those behind it.
According to a report by a local news website, Interior Secretary Arif Khan said that Facebook has taken Pakistan’s request positively and is blocking blasphemous content on the social networking site.
Only 15 per cent of such content is remaining, he said in his report. The secretary said that banning Facebook is not the solution.
This means that Facebook might not get banned after all! Khan further added that Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has arrested three suspects for their alleged involvement in publishing blasphemous content on social media.
The responsible authority has ceased all technology, including laptops, cell phones, and computers which were used to spread the controversial content on the social media platform.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has been asked to submit its latest findings in this regard in the form of a report.
