Facebook Suspends Taliban-Controlled RTA’s Official Page

7/20/2022

Facebook has suspended all official pages of the Radio Television of Afghanistan (RTA), which had been in control of the Taliban since August 15, 2021.

Currently, the Facebook pages of RTA Dari, Pashto and English that were verified have been removed.

After Taliban took control of RTA, they changed the logo of the media organization which was earlier designed with keeping in mind the colours of Afghanistan’s flag.

Facebook has not provided any details about the reasons for the suspension of RTA’s pages.

After the Taliban’s takeover last year, Facebook suspended many of the previous government’s official pages. Pages of Ministries of Defense, Interior, Finance, Education, Energy and Water, and Government Media and Information Center had been suspended.
