Facebook block for Valley peace

In JammuKashmir on November 21, 2011 at 7:32 am

The Jammu and Kashmir government is likely to block Facebook pages that it considers a threat to the fragile peace in the Valley.

“There is a proposal to continuously monitor the social networking site to identify pages that carry inflammatory or blasphemous content,” an official said.

“Not just that, those who upload those pages will be identified and, if possible, action will be initiated against them. There are elements who (try to) disturb peace.”

According to the official, the government is even considering an outright ban on Facebook, which has been used to rally protesters, but has so far been held back by the fear of angering the Opposition People’s Democratic Party and separatists.

It was the police that recommended the blocking of Facebook pages after an “anti-Islamic” page triggered protests at some places on Friday, a source said. The page was later blocked.
