Facebook on Monday removed the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi chapter’s official page from its platform, allegedly over the party’s promotion of its Kashmir March.
Ameer JI Karachi Naeem ur Rehman confirmed that his party’s page had been suspended. He added that the accounts of the admins of the page had also been banned following the page’s removal.
“The page was taken down around 6 or 7pm yesterday [Monday evening],” Rehman said.
The party is set to hold its Kashmir March on December 22. The march will be a display of solidarity with the people of India-occupied Kashmir and against Indian atrocities being committed in the disputed valley.
Jamaat-e-Islami, abbreviated JI, is a socially conservative and Islamist political party based in Pakistan. Its objective is the transformation of Pakistan into an Islamic state, governed by Sharia law, through a gradual legal, and political process.
