On the other hand, Meta, the parent company of Facebook, responded by denying the accusations and stating that they were not intentionally suppressing any voices on their platform.

Instead, Meta and TikTok classify Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist group governing Gaza, as a “dangerous organization” and prohibit content that supports or praises it.

According to Reuters, TikTok spokesperson also disputed Malaysia’s claims, stating that the accusations were baseless.

They emphasized that TikTok’s community guidelines are applied equally to all content on their platform, and they are committed to consistently enforcing their policies to ensure the safety of their community.
