America has declared these organizations as terrorist organizations. Let us tell you that America's Meta company has made many types of policies for its platforms, if not violated, the account is blocked. Hamas was being openly supported in the Gaza war through the account of the Supreme Leader of Iran. Apart from this, posts supporting Iranian proxies in the region (Huthi and Hezbollah) have also been posted from Khamenei's account.

Regarding removal of the account, Meta spokesperson said that the account has been removed for repeatedly violating Meta's policy regarding dangerous organizations and individuals. Under the policy, Meta removes “organizations or individuals that make violent announcements or have engaged in violence” from its platforms. He also said that there have been repeated demands from the Iranian opposition and Israel supporters to ban Khamenei's social media accounts. Especially in view of the October 7 attacks by Hamas on Israel. However, Iran has been denying any involvement in this attack.

“Meta Action Hypocracy”
Khamenei's Persian account had more than 5.1 million followers, while his English-language account had more than 204,000 followers. From his account, Khamenei has openly supported Palestine. Apart from this, Iran has also justified Houthi attacks in the Red Sea and Hezbollah attacks on Israel's Lebanon border. Mohammad Marandi, a former advisor to the Iranian government, has called this action of Meta as hypocrisy. He said, “The accounts of many people like me were deleted while Meta took no action against those who supported Israel's attacks.” Mohammed further said, “Ayatollah Khamenei is the only leader in the world who supports the resistance in Palestine and sees it as a free country, this is his crime.”
