ISLAMABAD – Pakistani prime minister called on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to ban Islamophobic content on the site, warning of increased radicalization among Muslims, the government said on Sunday

In a letter the Pakistani government posted on Twitter, Imran Khan said that « growing Islamophobia » encouraged extremism and violence across the world, especially through social media such as Facebook

« I would ask you to similarly ban Islamophobia and hatred against Islam for Facebook that you set up for the Holocaust, » Khan said

Facebook said this month it was updating its hate speech policy to ban all content that denies or distorts the Holocaust

« You cannot send a message that if hate messages against some are unacceptable, they are acceptable against others, » Khan said, adding that this « reflects prejudices and prejudices that will encourage radicalization further « 

In response to Khan’s call, a Facebook spokesperson told Reuters the company is against all forms of hatred and does not allow attacks based on race, ethnicity , national origin or religion

« We will remove this hate speech as soon as we hear about it, » the spokesperson said in an email, adding that the company had « more work to do »

Khan, in his letter, referred to the situation in France, where, he said, Islam was associated with terrorism

Earlier on Sunday, Khan said French President Emmanuel Macron had « attacked Islam » by encouraging the display of cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad

Khan’s comments came after Macron paid tribute to a French history professor beheaded by a radical Islamist who wanted to avenge the use of cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad in a course on free speech ( Reporting by Gibran Peshimam in Islamabad; Additional reporting by Lawrence Delevingne and Kanishka Singh; Editing by Alison Williams, Robert Birsel)
