Pakistan President Arif Alvi is the latest personality to have been notified by microblogging site – Twitter. President Alvi was served a notice by Twitter for posting hostile content over the Kashmiris issue but his account was not suspended.
Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari lambasted Twitter for “becoming a mouthpiece of the Modi government” and regretted that the move was in” bad taste and simply ridiculous”.
The Twitter notice, however, mentioned that it has “investigated the reported content and could not identify any violations of the Twitter Rules or applicable law.”
Recently, Twitter blocked over 200 Pakistani user accounts for tweeting in favour of Kashmiris and against India’s brutality in the valley.

Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major Gen Asif Ghafoor had earlier said the authorities were taking up the matter with Twitter and Facebook for blocking Pakistani social media accounts who posted in support of Kashmir.
