Ex-Muslims slam Facebook for shutting down their pages for ‘disrespecting Islam’

An anonymous group of ex-Muslims has slammed Facebook for its censorship of anti-Islamic content as several pages are shut down and banned for allegedly violating community rules.

The group – which is made up of former Muslim-Australians – claims Facebook pulled the plug on pages with thousands of followers after users flagged them as ‘disrespecting’ the Islam religion, reports The Australian.

‘Restrictions to these platforms would be overwhelmingly damaging for ex-Muslims who are too afraid to go public….

Pioneers of the ex-Muslim groups have condemned the social media giant for censoring content and filtering the type of information available to users.

The pages exist for ex-Muslims to denounce their former religion and band together with other previous adherents of Islam.

In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
