PTA asks Twitter to block accounts spreading propaganda against Pakistan


Islamabad: The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) has contacted the Twitter authorities to take action against users who spread false information about the country on its platform.

PTA said in a message posted on the Weibo website that it has contacted the Twitter authorities to immediately promote its management team and ensure that the platform is not used as a promotional tool to spread false information.

Following the current smear campaign against Pakistan, its cities and institutions spreading false and unfounded information, the PTA emphasized that Twitter must effectively block processing related to the campaign.

“To the disappointment of regulators, Twitter verified many accounts involved in spreading untrue stories. However, they are still at large.”

PTA further requires the platform to take immediate action on such accounts in accordance with its guidelines and policies.

What needs to be mentioned here is that Indian media are ridiculed and ridiculed by Pakistan’s Twitter community because they spread false stories about the supposed civil war in Karachi.

It was discovered that Indian media and various verified reports spread unfounded stories about Karachi’s “civil war” by claiming that they had shot and even exploded.

Interestingly, some reports claimed that military forces and police forces clashed in the port city of Pakistan, and cited the views of famous Indians on the imaginary battlefield.

Pakistani Twitter users responded appropriately to such reports, which may have shocked Indian media audiences in terms of its credibility and verification of the source of the report.

The Islamabad Policy Research Institute (IPRI) earlier pointed out in its report that India’s digital media propaganda model for Pakistan has grown exponentially after the 2018 Pakistan election, mainly around 4 key themes.

The main targets of Indian propaganda are still the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project and CPEC Authority Chairman Asim Saleem Bajwa. The second target of Indian propaganda is the Pakistani armed forces, which spread chaos and lawlessness in Pakistan and Kashmir.
