Atheists peoples In India have another place to discuss their thoughts and that is Facebook – Because it is the only one of few places for private discussion.
A Facebook group have recently deleted from Facebook itself, ‘Indian Atheists Debate Corner’ the name of the page describe the people who created a group based on non-believers in Indian religion terms. and now its seems to be a broken link, Facebook have removed the group without any prior knowledge to its owner but later on explained about certain restriction.
This group have been blocked from Facebook, however, we know that Facebook has its own terms and conditions, but the group have not revoked any Facebook rules and regulation and most importantly Facebook have not provided any reason of removing this group.

Facebook said, … “Content request from government law enforcement and Computer Emergency Response Team – we have blocked some more content from getting access in India, the content blocking reason the requesters gave is hypothetical for Indian users and also because of anti-religious, hate speech which could cause conflict within India,”
