Government Lifts Ban On Social Media As Country Returns To Normalcy After Mob Violence Earlier This Week

The government lifted the ban on social media this evening as the situation in the country has returned to normalcy.

A blanket ban on social media and several messaging apps was imposed after the outbreak of violence in the Northwestern province and the Gampaha police division.

Informed government sources added that the ban was imposed to curb the spread of information and prevent minds from organization.

While the social media ban was on, the police arrested several people for posting inflammatory posts on Facebook inciting mob violence.
