Outrage on Twitter continues as YouTube takes down famous Islamic scholar’s official channel
Jews are declaring it a victory, as they are quite familiar with the anti-jew sentiments of Dr. Israr Ahmed.
YouTube has taken down the channel of Dr. Israr Ahmed, titled ‘Dr. Israr Ahmed’s Official Channel.’
The channel was run by his son, Asif Hameed, and had almost a staggering 3 million subscribers and garnered over 370 million views in total. According to reports, the ‘Jewish Chronicle’ – the most influential and oldest Jewish newspaper – is claiming to have gotten the channel removed. The newspaper published reports that claimed that British-Pakistani Malik Faisal Akram, who took the Texas Synagogue hostage, was inspired by Dr. Israr Ahmed’s lectures.
Jews are declaring it a victory, as they are quite familiar with the anti-jew sentiments of Dr. Israr Ahmed. On the other hand, despite his demise, the teachings of Dr. Israr Ahmed are listened to and practiced by Muslims across the globe.
Muslims are speaking up against YouTube for removing his channel. They are of the view that the video-streaming giant is undermining the freedom of expression. YouTube said it had removed not just one, but two channels of the religious teacher.
It issued a statement saying that the channel violated its hate speech policy, and eleven more videos have been removed due to the same reason.
Here is how Muslims responded to the ban:

This is shameful. YouTube has no right to stop freedom of speech. If they find any video or script against the policy they may delete the specific video or clip but removing the whole channel is against their own policy and rules. #RestoreDrIsrarYoutubeChannel
