October 26, 2020: Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has written a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg seeking a ban on Islamophobic content on the site, warning of an increase in radicalisisation amongst Muslims, the government said on Sunday.



In the letter, the Pakistan’s PM said that “growing Islamophobia” is encouraging extremism and violence “across the world” - especially through social media platforms such as Facebook.



“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,” Khan said.
