PTA has raised its concerns with the Twitter administration that under Indian influence, the social media platform is not only depriving Pakistani users of their fundamental rights but also violating its own community guidelines.

Twitter has been asked to review its biased approach towards Pakistani users by unblocking accounts that are advocating the rights of the oppressed people of IOJ&K.
