The National Commission for Human Rights in Libya warned of the growing of hate speech as well as violence, extremism and radical religious ideologies as well as tribal and regional fanaticism via media outlets and social media platforms.

It said this could lead to more division among Libyans. It called for adopting a speech that advocates for tolerance, reconciliation, peace and forgiveness, and a speech that respect the right of citizenship and political pluralism.
