Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has written to Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, requesting a ban on Islamophobic content on the social media platform. The PM appealed a ban akin to the Facebook ban on posts that deny the Holocaust. Khan wrote to Zuckerberg peppered with examples of recent anti-Muslim laws and statements from the Indian and French governments.
Facebook’s independent investors are disgruntled with the way Mark Zuckerberg handled a series of Facebook scandals last year, which caused huge drop in Facebook’s share price. In Facebook’s annual shareholders meeting, 68% of outside investors voted for a proposal to oust Mark and hire an independent Chairman. However, Mark Zuckerberg, who owns 60% of the voting rights, rejected the proposal.
