Facebook blocks #ResignModi posts for hours, restores it calling it a mistake

Apr 29, 2021 17:26 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Facebook blocked posts tagged #ResignModi amid raging criticism of the government's handling of the COVID crisis, but restored it hours later calling it a mistake.

According to reports, a hashtag calling for the resignation of PM Modi was blocked on Facebook for hours on Wednesday. Users searching the hashtag were given a message that said such posts were "temporarily hidden " because "some content in those posts goes against Community Standards"

Facebook has said in a statement that the posts were not blocked at the behest of the government.

In a tweet, the Ministry of Electronics and IT had also said that ‘Govt has not issued any direction to remove this hashtag’.
