Iran not to block Instagram mobile app: ICT min.

Asked whether Instagram is going to be filtered or not, the Iranian minister highlighted that the social app won’t be filtered.

This is while Iran’s deputy attorney general Mohammad Mosaddegh told Fars News Agency on Wednesday that filtering of Instagram is on the agenda.

The reason behind this decision is that some celebrities which are active in the social media are asking for donations to underprivileged or sick individuals and this has led to many cases of fraud till date, he explained.

These kind of acts have created distrust in real charity institutions, he highlighted.

Iran’s judiciary issued an order in late April to completely ban Telegram app, citing citizens’ complaints and illegal activities of the Telegram against the country’s national security.
