This strict measure aims to control hate material and prevent the spread of rumors and misinformation that could disrupt the holy period. The decision follows a high-level meeting where authorities emphasized the need for proactive steps to maintain peace. While this restriction isn’t during Ramadan, it highlights the government’s growing concern about the potential for social media to incite violence during religious holidays.

This move has sparked debate, with some questioning its effectiveness and potential economic impact. Critics argue that a complete social media ban might be too broad of an approach and that focusing on content moderation could be a more sustainable solution.
