The list of people being blocked from FB for posting about Kashmir grows by the day. Some have time limits, some appear permanent. None of the posts have been hateful or incited to violence but FB claims they violate community standards. Most of the banned are respected academics or activists.
I have been blocked for 7 days for posting about a Kashmiri man blocked permanently. I’ve never incited to violence in my life & actually objected & deleted any comments against Indians that were abusive. The discussions were entirely cogent & respectful.
It’s a concern that so few are signing the petition for free speech on FB. The signatures are not public so no one jeopardizes their own account by signing. Not signing means leaving people out in the cold when they need support.
