The official page of Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) Pakistan was restored by Facebook after being removed earlier reportedly for covering and highlighting Indian atrocities in held Kashmir.
A JI party statement issued on Wednesday confirmed that the page had been removed. The statement said that the page had more than 3 million 'likes' on Facebook, and was the second most-viewed page [with respect to 'likes'] of any local political party.
In the past few months, Facebook has repeatedly come under fire for suspending certain accounts on the social media platform, belonging to both native Kashmiris and foreigners present in and outside of the disputed Himalayan region.
The accounts which have been suspended till date had posted comments, pictures or videos to highlight the treatment meted out to Kashmiris in the latest episode of unrest.
In July, Facebook removed actor Hamza Ali Abbasi's post in which he had praised a deceased separatist commander killed by Indian forces in Indian-held Kashmir.
The social media platform had suspended Abbasi's account following the post, but later restored the account after the post had been removed.
