Twitter has been sending notices and suspending accounts of Pakistanis for raising voice over the ongoing human rights violations in Indian-Occupied Kashmir. In a recent development, the social networking site has sent notices to the President of Pakistan, Dr. Arif Alvi, and Minister for Communications, Murad Saeed, along with several other politicians.
The recent actions by the social media site have sparked reactions among the masses. None other than Minister for Human Rights, Shireen Mazari, called out Twitter for this behavior.
She said that Twitter has become a mouthpiece of the Indian government and said that the action is ‘simply ridiculous.’

Meanwhile, Minister for Communication Murad Saeed was informed by Twitter that it has received a complaint from India that his Twitter account shares content that violates the Indian law. However, the minister stood his ground and said that he cannot be silenced.
Deploy armies, put barricades, suspend media, impose curfew, bare people from going IOK. We can’t be silenced India, you will still be exposed. You will still be exposed.#KashmirGenocideByModi #KashmirWantsFreedom pic.twitter.com/1tCLbUaCGh
