Spokesman Slams Instagram for Removing Posts on Gen. Soleimani

ranian Government Spokesman Ali Rabiei has lashed out at the "undemocratic" move by Instagram to remove the posts shared about Iranian senior commander General Qassem Soleimani, who was recently assassinated in a US airstrike in Iraq.

"In an undemocratic and scandalous move, Instagram has removed the voice of the innocence of nation - related to the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani," Rabiei regretted in a post on his Twitter account on Monday.


This comes as "terrorists are free" to make their voices heard on Instagram, he added.


He said the move indicates the double-standard policy of those who claim to be advocates of democracy and freedom of media.


His comments came after many Iranian celebrities and athletes shared posts about the assassination of General Soleimani, but Instagram deleted all such posts.
