Iran bans Whatsapp for being bought by Facebook
FaceBook recently acquired Whatsapp for $19 billion and that has contributed to why Iran has kicked the app out of it’s territory.

Listen to the reason why Iran banned Whatsapp: Whatsapp, since it’s February purchase by FaceBook is now owned by Mark Zukerberg, who Iran cited as an “American Zionist”, and that must be stopped.

The real reason’s why Facebook and Whatsapp are being banned in the country was revealed by an anonymous blogger:

“The Revolutionary Guard sees these social sites as a major threat because there’s an appeal for young people and the government worries about the exchange of information.

“(Supreme Leader) Khamenei and his cronies, caught on to the power and potential of these sites after the (Green Revolution) uprisings.” said the blogger.

Iran has banned WeChat, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Google Play and other social platforms even before this.
