Twitter rejects India’s complaint against President Alvi’s tweet on Kashmir

Islamabad (Web Desk): Microblogging giant Twitter rejected a complaint it received against President Dr Arif Alvi’s account.


Federal Minister for Human Rights Dr Shireen Mazari shared a screenshot of an email received by President Alvi from Twitter, in which the company said it had received a complaint against his account regarding a tweet highlighting India’s violations in occupied Kashmir.

"Twitter has really gone too far in becoming mouthpiece of the Rogue Modi government! They sent a notice to our president! In bad taste and simply ridiculous," Mazari said in a tweet.

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.”

On August 5, Modi’s Hindu-nationalist government revoked the autonomy of the Muslim-majority territory where tens of thousands of people have been martyred in an uprising against Indian occupation since 1989.
