Days after Hamza Ali Abbasi’s post praising Burhan Wani was removed by Facebook, the social media giant has now banned the actor’s personal account for three days.

Hamza took to Twitter to share the news.

“Banned again for 3 days. Now FB will tell us who is and isn’t a terrorist,” tweeted Hamza.

Earlier on Tuesday, Hamza’s account was temporarily deactivated when he supported Wani saying the assassinated leader was not an ISI agent but a Kashmiri who had joined the rebellion after his brother was killed by Indian army.

“My FB account deactivated for talking about Kashmir,” claimed Hamza in a Tweet, although his Facebook account was accessible.

This is not the first time that Hamza’s post had been removed. Earlier in January, 2015, Facebook removed his post on the Paris attack.

However, in a rare apology, the website’s founder, Mark Zuckerberg, admitted his team may had have made a mistake, and hence apologised.

    In the old days the stepping stone to politics was to create a disturbance in college make sure a small time evening news paper reporter was at hand and then get dragged to the local thana for a few days inside……. today its easier and less painful thanks to Facebook, Twitter etc. Recommend
