Facebook deactivated Hamza Ali Abbasi, a known showbiz celebrity in Pakistan, for posting an update that supported Burhan Wani, a Kashmiri leader who was recently killed by Indian Army.
Hamza revealed this on his Twitter and said that Facebook deleted his post in question before restoring his account.
Facebook Status Update in question was as following:
“Look at this man. He is not an ISI agent, he is not a Mullah inspired Pakistani funded militant. He is Burhan Wani Shaheed.
A KASHMIRI who joined the freedom struggle of Kashmir when his brother was killed by Indian Army.
If KASHMIR issue is not resolved according to the will of Kashmiris and UN Resolutions, we have another PALESTINE in the making right in our backyard.
#IAmBurhanWani #BurhanWaniShaheed #Kashmir,”
It is yet unclear if Facebook removed the post because of Kashmir or Palestine as both words were mentioned in the status.

It is also unclear if Facebook removed the post upon complaints, or it took action against the opinion itself.
Not to mention, Hamza’s post didn’t contain any abusive words or racial comments, yet it was removed by Facebook clearly indicating a bias towards what Hamza had to say.
It won’t be out of place to mention that Facebook has previously done the same to Hamza Ali Abbasi when one of his posts on “Freedom of Expressions” was deleted.
Later on Mark Zukerberg had to explain himself that removal of the post was a mistake, and it was finally restored.
Just post things on twitter, cuckerberg is so bad.
umer we started Use #FacebookIsNotneutral Tag to protest against @facebook FB is deleting accounts who show thier soldity with kashmiries by post @TEEEZNews
Mark Zuckerberg always discriminates muslims .. this is one of his so many examples that show his intolerance against muslims .. thats the reason many of us have quitted using facebook to strenghten our beliefs and stop giving him profits.
I don’t want a war on this comment .. period
That’s the best individual answer to Facebook’s discrimination.
so in my opinion Muslims should boycott this shit Facbuk!
Well said Abdullah! And you are right the best way is to quit it. But now let the comment war begin :-)
I Don`t like Mark Zinger Burger reallyy!!!1
Still we use facebook and that is the biggest mistakes we do as Muslims :p

I can, however, support you on this tag on twitter

Yar iski posts pe to Fb ne koi khaas he nazr rakhi hui hy….ye koi 4thi 5vi post delete hui hy is bhai ki
harkten bhi to aisi karta rehta hai :-p Zuckerburg nay is kay lye ek banda dedicate kardia hai jo sirf isi ki posts read karta hai or delete karta hai :-D
What should be kept in mind and not forgotten in any case is the infiltration of Indians as employees of facebook, their prejudices and influences over this social network, like many others. I am not a particular fan of facebook or anything but, Zuckerberg is just one person, and there may be hundreds or even thousands of employees hired by this company to get its work done. But we are well aware of the disinformatory mindset of Indians. They take it with them wherever they go. Whats necessary for us is to inform the wider world of the corruption caused by the indian mindset, how it has taken over peaceful states as Jammu and Kashmir, Hyderabad, Tibet, and many other places with their military aggression. They have been disguising themselves as the savior, to the wider world long enough. It is high time for the world to know, and it is we who should step up and let all this be known
You are so right but unfortunately most of us don’t really understand and look at the situation from such perspective and rather start blaming Mark Zuckerberg (who might not even be informed about this incident yet) and talk about boycotting facebook and what not rather than using these mediums to actually reveal those indian employees responsible behind such endeavors and let the world see their true faces.
Why people are saying Burhan as Shaheed? He is not muslim as he is Bohri….
u got any proof?
No proof but Burhan is the name only Bohri Used
you son of bitch! he was muslim
How you say that?
Bohri are Muslims. That way, Barelvi, Wahhabi, Hanafi, Shafa’i, Shia, Zaidi, Aghakhani, Deobandi, Ahle-e-Hadith aren’t muslims either. Understand the difference between SECT and RELIGION. …. If he was a non-muslim (which he wasn’t). Still his fight was for Kashmiris. (most of them being Muslims)
If you are right then tell me What is the basis concept of bohri? Bohri People derives from?
What Nawaz Sharif?
Just a visual. You non-muslim. (Taking in consideration difference between your apparent sect and mine)
Thanks for posting the image, appreciate it. New generation ko ye sab baatein pata honi chiye ke ab tak Zionist ne kitne sects bana diye Muslims ko ander se divide karne ke liye. All the sects should be united against loser Zionist militant.

Post are usually deleted upon reports. As hamza ali abbasi is a celebrity from Pakistan so everyone know him. Maybe some social warriors has made the strike against his post.
Instead of bitching about facebook, we should stop using it and find an alternative or better yet create a social network our self
I am also same post on Facebook, let’s see …….
This is clear biasness from Facebook (in favor of India). Down with FB……Down with India.
and I think down with all those who are still facbuk addicted!
Yes, my few friend(s) start deactivating the account namely Kaleem Ahmed, Alexandar James Parker, etc.
They seems sensible enough! well, good to know this.

Done I retweeted post by #FacebookIsNotNeutral
I had reported a post containing a picture of women who put Quran under her foot on a toilet. Facebook responded that it does not violate their community standards. They don’t care about Muslims and really want a way to end Islam which is, of course, impossible.
Facebook has stupid community standards once I have posted a violant thing about Makkha and they have said your report is not against community standard. Facebook is stupid
Everyone here is condemning FB racism but none of you quit it….except for few.
you are right
Hahaha Man get some life.
You can deactivate your facebook page and make an photoshoped image easily.
