In April this year, India’s Ministry of Information & Broadcasting had also blocked sixteen YouTube-based news channels, including six from Pakistan.
India on Monday (June 27, 2022) banned several official accounts of Pakistan Embassies on Twitter for allegedly spreading fake news. The official accounts of the Pakistani Embassy in the UN, Turkey, Iran and Egypt have been withheld by Twitter in India. The account of the national public broadcaster in Pakistan – Radio Pakistan has also been withheld on the microblogging site.
“Account has been withheld in India in response to a legal demand,” an error message displayed while opening these accounts.
Meanwhile, the Pakistani Ministry of Foreign Affairs has expressed that it is “deeply concerning” that India has blocked the “flow of information” to Indian Twitter by withholding access to these official accounts.
These are in addition to many others for which access has been blocked.
