Facebook removed 85% of blasphemous material on Pakistan's request, high court told
- The interior ministry informed the Islamabad High Court on Monday that Facebook administration has been blocking illegal blasphemous content on Pakistan's request and 85 per cent of such material on the social networking site has already been removed.
Interior Secretary Arif Khan said in his report that Facebook had responded to their letter and showed its willingness to remove content deemed blasphemous.
Law enforcers have also found blasphemous content from the suspects' laptops and mobile devices. A joint interrogation team has been constituted to probe into the matter, he added.
When asked why the ambassador of the country from where the offence originated was not summoned, the interior secretary responded: "Our embassy in Washington has also taken up the matter [with the US government]."
He said banning Facebook is "not the solution of the problem".(Excerpt) Read more at: dawn.com ...
