Facebook claim rejected, urged to open office in Pakistan

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan army’s media wing, the Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR), has contacted the Facebook authorities a day after the social media giant said it has taken down over 100 pages and accounts linked to ISPR.

Security sources while speaking on the condition of anonymity expressed disappointment over Facebook claims about the ISPR being behind the accounts which it said were involved in coordinated inauthentic behavior.

The sources said that the Facebook was unable to understand the situation in Pakistan because the company has no office in the country.

The sources, however, did not elaborate on the talks the ISPR had with the Facebook administrtaion.

They said that the social media giant deletes Facebook pages, accounts and groups which speak for people of Kashmir.

The sources said Facebook should open office in Pakistan for better communication and coordination.

They said Facebook claim that the accounts were being run under ISPR was disappointing.

The sources said the accounts closed by Facebook had nothing to do with ISPR.

They said Facebook itself said that no objectionable content was found on those pages.

Facebook on Tuesday said it had taken down 103 accounts, pages and groups linked to ISPR.
