Facebook removes Myanmar Military News page, know what is the reason

On Sunday, Facebook removed Myanmar Military News page from its handle, which is run by Myanmar Military. Let us tell you that Facebook has removed Myanmar Military News page due to inciting violence citing violation of its rules. 

Facebook gave its statement saying that we have removed the Tatmadaw True News Information Team page from Facebook in order to prevent the violation of our community standards and to avoid damage. Myanmar military fighters use Myanmar military news page to warn protesters. Moreover, he also spread allegations that National League Democracy (NLD) had won the elections last year. 

However, so far, the army has not presented any evidence to back these allegations. Myanmar's military imposed a one-year emergency earlier this month. The reason behind imposing emergency is that leader Aung San Suu Kyi was democratically elected and others were detained. 

Protests continued on this Sunday as well, causing thousands of people to hit the road and demanded the release of other members of their NLD party. Facebook banned content and profiles run by the Myanmar military early this month because the protest was continuing across the country. This measure has been implemented only on the Facebook account of Myanmar army spokesman Brigadier General Jav Man Tuun and on the Facebook page of the Myanmar Army.
