Facebook shuts down atheist and ex-Muslim groups amid claims they are being targeted by 'fundamentalists'

Facebook has been accused of shutting down ex-Muslim and atheist groups amid claims they were targeted by 'fundamentalists' who wanted them closed.

This week the social media company temporarily closed the pages of Atheist Republic, which has more than 1.6million followers, and the Ex-Muslims of North America, liked almost 25,000 times.

It is believed Facebook closed the groups after a flurry of complaints from people taking advantage of the company's 'flagging' tools to falsely report the pages.

Moderators revealed that the pages, which have since been reopened, were closed for being 'in violation of Facebook's community standards'.

Several ex-Muslim and atheist groups have now claimed that Facebook is blocking their pages before investigating complaints, reports Heat Street.

Former Muslims have written an open letter to the social media giant, calling on it to 'to stop exercising intellectual persecution' against atheist and ex-Muslim organisations.
