Tarana to ask Facebook to handle Bangladesh differently
Tarana Halim, state minister for the posts and telecommunication, plans to propose that the Facebook authorities form a dedicated department for Bangladesh. "The country desk would benefit us in keeping abreast of any complaints from Bangladesh and would cut down response time," the state minister said after a meeting with law enforcement agencies on Thursday at the Secretariat. State Minister Tarana Halim will lead a team to meet with Facebook representatives in Singapore on March 30 to place the proposal. The state minister will also propose that the social media platform insert a clause in consideration of Bangladeshi culture and religion, so that posts which hurt religious sentiment or create a negative reaction among the people may be regulated.

“We will request that the Facebook authorities implement account verification through the use of government documents, which is mentioned in their policy. Facebook should implement their policy more strictly,” said Tarana. She added that Facebook would also be requested to provide information on any ongoing cases to the government so that they may be resolved more swiftly. Earlier, Bangladesh Police sat with representatives of Facebook on the sidelines of the International Conference of Police Chiefs of South Asia on Monday. At the meeting, police had proposed to sign an MoU with Facebook requiring that they demand additional identification, including NID numbers, from Bangladeshis who want to sign up at the social networking website. Facebook rejected the proposal the following day. However, they assured that they would cooperate with law enforcement agencies whenever required.
