Facebook removed the home page of the Burmese Army in compliance with criteria prohibiting incitement to violence.

The social network did not disclose whether there was a special event that caused the accident. Hours after the protester died, police opened fire during a demonstration against the first coup. February.

A Facebook representative said in a statement: In line with our global policy, we have removed the Tatmadaw True News Information Team page from Facebook due to repeated violations of community norms prohibiting incitement to violence and accommodation.

Myanmar Army is called (Tatmadaw) and the page titled Tadmadaw Real News Information Team is not available. After the coup that toppled the elected government, Facebook also put pressure on the Myanmar military.

Rescuers said the two were killed in Mandalay, Myanmar's second largest city, when police and soldiers shot and killed protesters during protests against Aung San Suu Kyi's elected government on its bloodiest day.

In recent years, the social platform has received much criticism from the international community for failing to contain the hate movement on the Internet. She has reached out to civil rights activists and democratic parties in Myanmar and has opposed the military.

In 2018, Army Commander-in-Chief Min Anglai (now military commander) banned 19 high-ranking officials and organizations and deleted pages and accounts opened by hundreds of military personnel to coordinate their inappropriate behavior.

Ahead of the November elections, Facebook announced that it had shut down its network of 70 fake accounts run by the military and sites that post positive content about the military or criticize Suu Kyi and her party.

Since the coup, Facebook has imposed several restrictions due to disinformation and previously restricted access to the Tatmadaw True News team page.

Postings in support of the coup in which voters were accused of fraud have been removed, and government agencies have been barred from requesting removal of content.

The Burmese military has tried many steps to suppress democratic protests, blocking Facebook in the country and blocking internet access.

Facebook is clearly keen to avoid the growing hatred of Rohingya in Myanmar due to complacency and oblivion.

The message from the platform is: While there are concerns that Facebook is being overly cautious in removing documents, the government is not relying on fake news and violence.
