Instagram has banned an English account used by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Iranian media say this follows an article he published, in which he urged young people in France to ask the authorities why doubts about genocide in World War II were a crime, and an insult to Prophet Muhammad became a freedom of speech?
Many countries around the world have criticized the French authorities for their support of a cartoon against the holy Prophet.
The suspended account had at least 21,400 followers before it was suspended. His main Farsi account on Instagram with 2.5 million followers is still online.
Instagram has not yet commented on the matter.
