As someone who works in social media and cyber security, I suspect not censorship, but a safety protocol got triggered.

Reported content gets reviewed by actual people and it can be days before it’s reviewed. If many reports are submitted within short period linking to one hashtag it could be something very sinister, especially if the reports are for graphic violence or death.

You know how mass shootings and violence have been live streamed on FB? No chances are taken for it to happen again. Algorithms and AI detect and block anything receiving multiple instances of serious category reporting immediately and flag it for urgent review by staff.

People have obviously reported some #Sikh content. It could be a group of anti sikh trolls reporting multiple posts - trying to suppress our voices, again! Of course they failed, #Sikh became visible again rather quickly
