MoCIT: Might Ban Facebook If It Violates Established Policies

Afghanistan’s Minister of Communication and Information Technology Shahzad Aryubi warned that that the ministry can ban social media website Facebook in Afghanistan if it does not follow the newly-established policy of the institution.

“We give Facebook six months to follow our policy in its services in Afghanistan, otherwise Facebook will be banned in Afghanistan,”

Aryubi said the policy is aimed at preventing “misuse” of Facebook by a number of users in Afghanistan.

He said that 20 issues have been identified in the telecom services of the country and that he will urge President Ashraf Ghani to merge Afghanistan’s Telecom Regulatory Authority (ATRA) with his ministry if it cannot resolve the problems.
