However, now the account has be reactivated.
Sharing the news of reactivation of his Facebook account, Hamza wrote, "Finally after almost 2 days, i am able to post on FB. Facebook as organization can censor whatever they want, BUT THEN THEY SHOULD NEVER CLAIM TO BE CHAMPIONS OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH. To west and India, Burhan Wani Shaheed maybe a dead terrorist, but for me, he is a SHAHEED. Facebook wrote to me that violating their "Terms" may result in permanent deactivation of my accnt, so PLEASE SHARE THIS POST AS MUCH AS YOU CAN as the least we can do for oppressed Kashmiris is to raise a voice. Incase my page is taken down, my twitter ID is twitter.com/iamhamzaabbasi (sic)."
