A leading Indian political YouTuber says he has been banned from posting to Facebook during the crucial month leading up to the country’s general election.

Dhruv Rathee, a YouTube creator who makes Hindi-language videos analysing controversial political issues, tweeted today (March 18) that Facebook has banned him from posting for 30 days. The first phase of India’s election falls on April 11.

Facebook, according to Rathee, said one of his posts had violated its community standards. The post in question, of which he tweeted a screenshot, simply consisted of pages from a biography of Adolf Hitler.
