There is growing public outrage against the military coup in Myanmar. In many cities, including Yangon, a large number of people took to the streets on Wednesday night to protest the coup by honking their vehicles. Photos of such protests were shared on Facebook. The military government then banned Facebook and other messaging services to crush the protest. Facebook is quite popular in Myanmar. The overthrown government is usually announced through this internet media. Internet users said that they started having trouble using Facebook since Wednesday night. Mobile service provider company Telenor Myanmar said in a statement that we have received instructions from the Ministry of Communications to temporarily shut down Facebook. This will be followed. However, he is also concerned about human rights violations by the move. Several top leaders, including the country's supreme leader Aung San Suu Kyi and President Vin Myint, were taken into custody. Aung San has been accused of illegally importing communications equipment.
