“Pakistan authorities have taken up the case with Twitter and Facebook against suspending Pakistani accounts for posting in support of Kashmir. Indian staff at their regional headquarters is the reason,” he said.
He also encouraged users of social media to share data on suspended accounts. The declaration by Ghafoor emerges as #StopSuspendingPakistanis in Pakistan was a trend on Twitter. Multiple Pakistanis have gone to Twitter over the past week to report the suspension of accounts after posting about Kashmir.
