President Arif Alvi received an email from Twitter, informing him of a complaint it had received against one his tweets about the humanitarian crisis in Kashmir on Monday.
Twitter, however, rejected the complaint and wrote that the content posted by President Dr Alvi was not in violation of Twitter Rules.
The tweet in question was shared by the Pakistani head of state on August 24. It was about the ongoing protests in Srinagar and the human rights violations in Kashmir. He had shared a video of the protests along with a brief message.
This is Srinagar yesterday despite curfews, bans, blackouts, teargas & firing. No amount of oppression & brutality can suppress the resentment of the Kashmiris against India. They want freedom at all costs. Please retweet and let the world know. pic.twitter.com/2OqueQmJpY

On Monday, Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari posted the screenshot of the mail received by Dr Alvi from Twitter, saying that the social media website had become a ‘mouthpiece of the Rogue Modi government’.
Twitter has really gone too far in becoming mouthpiece of the Rogue Modi govt! They sent a notice to our President! In bad taste and simply ridiculous. pic.twitter.com/9jxhmVKaL9

“We have investigated the reported content and could not identify any violations of the Twitter Rules or applicable law. Accordingly, we have not taken any action at this time,” the email to the president read.
