Facebook has removed about 85% blasphemous material at the request of Pakistan, the government informed a top court on Monday.

Interior Secretary Arif Khan, in a report to the Islamabad High Court, said that Facebook has taken Pakistan’s request positively and is blocking blasphemous content. He further informed the court that the Federal Investigation Agency has arrested three suspects for their alleged involvement in publishing blasphemous material on social media.

Chairman of Pakistan Telecommunication Authority Ismael Shah said a team of 25 professionals were active against such content and 40 such pages had been blocked so far.
