Imran Khan govt blocks Twitter, Zoom for hours to restrain people from online conference on atrocities in Pak

Islamabad: Baloch activists’ online conference triggered panic in Imran Khan government and blocked social networking platform Twitter and video conferencing platform Zoom for a couple of hours on Sunday.

“Disruption to Twitter and Periscope registered across Pakistan with impact to multiple networks; incident ongoing,” said NetBlocks.org, an internet’s observatory which tracks disruptions and shutdowns across the world.

Many Pakistani Twitter users claimed that Pakistan government shut down Twitter and Zoom because of the SAATH Virtual Conference.

Among other issues, Pakistanis discussed forced religious conversion of Hindu girls in Sindh.

The SAATH Virtual Conference was being held to discuss the atrocities on Balochistan residents.

However, a few hours later, both sites were restored in Pakistan.
