Bangladesh: Muslims burn, loot vandalize Hindu houses over rumor that Hindu criticized Muhammad on Facebook

“The rumour was that one Titu Roy, originally from Thakurbari village but currently living in Narayanganj, put up a Facebook post defaming Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) a few days ago.”

This maddened Muslim mob needn’t have bothered. All they needed to do was appeal to Facebook, and the offending post, if it actually existed, would have been deleted immediately. After all, the Vice President of Facebook has assured the Pakistani government that Facebook would remove all “anti-Islam” material. Why wouldn’t the same thing hold true for Facebook in Bangladesh? It certainly holds true for Facebook in the United States.
