Tehran(IP): Violating freedom of expression, the social network Instagram blocked the personal account of "Ali Bahadori Jahromi," the spokesman of the Iranian government, with about 80,000 followers.

Iran PressIran news: According to Iran's government official website, the account of the spokesman of the Iranian government was blocked after the publication of the story congratulating the birth of Imam Hussein (As) and the day of the Revolution.

In recent days, the Instagram account of some other members of the Iranian government, such as the Ministers of Communications and the Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance, had been blocked.

This violation of freedom of expression comes when promoting violence, economic fraud, moral and sexual vulgarity, and the breach of users' privacy is always supported by Instagram and is not dealt with by the American media.

It should be noted that Western countries, especially the United States, have always claimed freedom of expression and criticized censorship and closure of the media.

These double standards of Westerners have been repeatedly protested by Iranian and Muslim users worldwide.
