Twitter, the leading forum on social media, has suspended the Twitter account of Pro-Independence Baloch leader Dr. Allah Nizar. It is noteworthy that this is not the first time. Before this, Twitter has restricted Dr. Allah Nazar’s Twitter account on several occasions. Baloch activists have called the blocking of Dr. Allah Nazar’s Twitter account as an attempt to restrict his freedom of expression.
Shari Baloch, the editor of the Sangar media group and publication, has denounced Twitter’s this action and said that it is unacceptable and unjustified that Twitter can block one’s account without any valid reason. Not only is it tantamount to imposing restrictions on freedom of expression, but also it is a well-planned attempt to block the Twitter account of journalists and activists, particularly targeting Baloch leaders, to limit their expressions of ideas in front of the world.
