The Bangladeshi government has moved to block six societal programs – Tango, and Facebook, Messenger, Line, WhatsApp, Viber – mentioning security reasons coming from its determination to give two opposition leaders the death penalty.
The selection came following an earlier opinion was upheld by the state’s Supreme Court to do the pair for offenses perpetrated during the 1971 war, reports DW.
It is not initially that social networking sites are blocked in the united states. In 2010, Bangladesh invoked a ‘temporary prohibition’ after satirical pictures of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) on Facebook were uploaded and shared.
But this time around, the conditions are somewhat distinct. The united states remains split on the determination to give the potency of the prohibition and the death penalty.
Religious fundamentalism is also creeping to the mainstream – the last few months have seen attacks on publishers and lay bloggers – using the self styled ‘Islamic State’ (occasionally called ISIS) claiming liability.
