Twitter suspended the verified account of TLP chief Rizvi on Nov. 4 after the government and Twitter users reported his account for hate speech and violence. Meanwhile, the government said in a statement that it would identity and take legal action against vandals who damaged public and private property. It has urged citizens to help identify agitators.
Not the Naya Pakistan we’d hoped for. 3 days after a defiant & brave speech defending the judiciary, Pakistan’s gov caves in to extremist demands to bar #AsiaBibi from leaving Pak, after she was acquitted of blasphemy- effectively signing her death warrant https://t.co/YwUpRM8cnu— Jemima Goldsmith (@Jemima_Khan) November 3, 2018
