JKEF condemns move to block ‘Kashmir Horizon’ FB page

Srinagar: The Facebook page of Kashmir Horizon, a newspaper published from Srinagar, has been blocked by Facebook administration.
Kashmir Horizon’s Editor in Chief said, “We have not violated any local policy and it is for the authorities in Kashmir to put in public domain its policy for newspapers running their Facebook pages.
Facebook has faced criticism for removing the user content. “The way Facebook has blocked FB page of newspaper related to Kashmir is deplorable.
Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Editors Forum condemned such move by the Facebook, it is not only humiliation to the concerned Newspaper but also Facebook trying to muzzle the genuine voice of people of Kashmir. It is the only viable social media through which people can express their views. On one side we are talking of global village on the other side govt is suppressing voice in Kashmir said spokesperson of JKEF.
