Facebook banned leading Indian politician for spreading hatred against Muslims

ISLAMABAD - Facebook has banned an outspoken right-wing Indian politician T. Raja Singh for spreading hate speech about Muslims.

A Facebook spokesman said, a regional lawmaker for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ruling party, T. Raja Singh, was blocked "for violating our policy prohibiting those that promote or engage in violence and hate from having a presence on our platform.

Raja, who made headlines for reportedly saying that Muslim Rohingya refugees from Myanmar should be shot, will now be put on a Facebook list of "dangerous individuals".
