Facebook’s action against BJP MLA from Telangana, T Raja Singh, comes as it faces growing political pressure in India over its handling of extremist content.

Facebook has banned Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Telangana unit MLA T Raja Singh for violating its hate speech policies amid growing controversy in India over how the social media company regulates its political content.

“We have banned Raja Singh from Facebook for violating our policy prohibiting those that promote or engage in violence and hate from having a presence on our platform,” a Facebook spokesperson said in an emailed statement, adding that the process for evaluating potential violators “is extensive and it is what led us to Facebook’s decision to remove his account”.

On Wednesday, Facebook officials appeared before a parliamentary panel led by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor and faced questions on alleged political bias from both sides of the divide.

T Raja Singh had claimed in a video on Twitter last month that he does not have any official Facebook page. “I have got to know many FB pages are using my name. Let me clarify I’m not having any official page, I’m not responsible for any of their posts,” he had said.

Mr Singh had also disowned communally-loaded posts and claimed that his official Facebook account was “hacked and blocked in 2018”.
