Twitter denies govt's request to block Khadim Rizwi's account
Thousands of TLP protesters brought Pakistan to a standstill during its recent protest, burning rickshaws, cars and lorries to protest against the acquittal of a Christian woman by SC who spent eight years on death row on false charges of blasphemy.
TLP threatened to kill the judges and destroyed the public properties during its recent protest.
The minister for Human rights, Shireen Mazari, told a social media user that Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) was asked to request Twitter admins to block the accounts of those who threaten the state institutions by the relevant minister on Friday.
"I am shocked it has not happened as I was present when PTA bureaucracy was finally found available and tasked," she wrote.
Mazari earlier today wrote on her Twitter handle that Information Minister just informed that they were refusing our request.

The Federal minister further wrote, "appeasement to "avoid bloodshed" sends a dangerous message to non-state actors and undermines the very concept of democratic peaceful protest. The State has to enforce the Rule of Law, Constitution and stand by state institutions especially when they are targeted".
