It’s no secret that Pakistan punishes people who insult Islam with a death sentence. Now, the majority Muslim country is making Facebook the new battleground for its war on blasphemy.  

Pakistani officials called on Facebook to block blasphemous content online from appearing in the country. Anyone posting the content will face fines, imprisonment, or death. Facebook representatives will visit Pakistan this week to discuss the issue.

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan says Facebook has already started cracking down by blocking content Pakistani Muslims believe is blasphemous.

Khan calls Facebook’s actions a “very big improvement.”

“We see it very positively that at the highest level Facebook has responded and takes this issue seriously,” he added.

Officials say Facebook has already removed 85 per cent of anti-Islamic content from Pakistan in the last few weeks.
