Pakistani actress Mahira Khan’s Instagram account has been shadow-banned after she expressed solidarity with Palestine.
The actress herself shared through a platform story:
“Great! My account has been shadow-banned.”
What is a Shadow ban?
A process to block (a user) from a social media site or online forum without their knowledge, typically by making their posts and comments no longer visible to other users.
Social media giant Meta has shadow-banned many consumers supporting Palestine, and many pages were being blocked that were expressing solidarity with Palestine.
Despite the suspension of posting Mahira used emojis with the Palestine flag.
Earlier, Mahira Khan has expressed solidarity with the people of Gaza and shared a picture of a Palestinian child suffering in the battle for his land.
