DG ISPR Says Pakistani Users’ Twitter Accounts Being Suspended For Tweets On Kashmir
Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor has said that Pakistani users were having their accounts blocked on Twitter for posts on Kashmir.
In a tweet, Asif Ghafoor said that Pakistani users were facing problems with their accounts being suspended on one pretext or the other. He added that most of the blocked accounts were due to the users’ expressions in support of Kashmir.
