Here’s How Facebook Bizzarely Got Involved In Khadija Siddiqi’s Shocking Stabbing Case

If you’re not familiar with Khadija’s story, please read this.

Khadija Siddiqi is a law student from Lahore who was stabbed 23 times in broad daylight. She had her posts regarding her case removed by Facebook – even though they didn’t violate any of the Community Standards.

Khadija was also a recent target for humiliation in court

She was, unfortunately, questioned her about her virginity. Because shamelessly resorting to the ghairat card was obviously the only option left.

Khadija Siddiqi and her supporters started facing this issue yesterday when they noticed that their posts were being deleted. Some couldn’t access their social media accounts either.

Hassan Niazi, Khadija’s lawyer, shared the aforementioned information on Twitter

Mohammad Jibran Nasir, who has been extremely vocal about this issue, weighed in on the matter too

In a series of tweets, he spoke up against Facebook’s policy being used wrongly against Khadija

He pointed out how Facebook failed to ensure freedom of expression in this case

And pointed out how Khadija and her supporters were blocked from accessing Facebook

Khadija Siddiq’s post about her facing harassment in court was also removed

And Khadija’s attacker was believed to be behind all of this

As news of the matter spread, many others weighed in on the matter as well

People weren’t too happy with Facebook’s removal of the posts

Others who had their posts removed too shared screenshots as well

A continuous war waged on on social media, where Facebook’s Community Standards were questioned. It was evident that Khadija and her supporters could not be silenced.

Fortunately, Facebook restored the removed content and access to the blocked accounts  

While it remains unclear why the posts were removed, it’s heartening to note that the power of social media was used to benefit Khadija and her team. Let us hope that after everything she’s been through, her battle becomes easier here on out.
