Taiwan News: Sri Lankan government urged to lift block on social media

Taiwan News: Sri Lankan government urged to lift block on social media. “After a week-long shutdown of popular social media networks, journalists and rights activists are demanding the Sri Lankan government lift the censorship after anti-Muslim violence. Freddie Gamage of the Professional Web Journalists’ Association said the government could have used existing laws to prevent spreading of hate speech and punished those instigating violence, instead of blocking sites such as Facebook, Instagram, Viber and WhatsApp.”
