We are all aware of how the social media has been taken down in Iran by a certain court in the same of privacy concerns. It is rather surprising to know that Iran has actually called upon Mark Zuckerberg to speak regarding the privacy concerns of Facebook in the court. Well, don’t think that it’s just you who is getting the vibes that Mark is going to turn down the invitation. There seems to be no reason why he would be interested in showing up for a court discussion, particularly one that is coming from Iran.
The invitation comes from a court in the southern part of the country and the Facebook CEO has been ordered to attend a hearing to answer complaints over privacy, specifically regarding Instagram and WhatsApp. Decisions were made by courts to ban both these services in the capital Tehran and we know how this was related to providing protection from more moderate forces within the country.
We are not so sure about the nature of the court commons and the details have not been revealed because news of it comes not from the court itself, but from an official within the Basij militia which is a voluntary paramilitary force that is regularly called upon to protect Iran's theocracy from dissent. We are pretty sure that’s the last appointment Mark’s assistant would make.
