According to reports, the personal Twitter account of Pakistan government spokesperson Mohammad Faisal (@DrMFaisal) was suspended after a complaint by Indian authorities
New Delhi: The personal Twitter account of Pakistan government spokesperson Mohammad Faisal (@DrMFaisal) was suspended on Tuesday for allegedly tweeting about Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case at International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague and highlighting "Indian atrocities" in Jammu and Kashmir.
Jadhav, a retired Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of "espionage and terrorism" after a closed trial in April 2017. However, India challenged his death sentence in CJI and a case is going on.
According to reports, the account was suspended after a complaint by Indian authorities.
Meanwhile, Pakistani media reported, “Faisal’s personal twitter account has been suspended over exposing Indian atrocities and grave human rights violation in occupied Kashmir.”
However, there hasn’t been any official statement on the suspension.
The two counties are at loggerheads over the recent Pulwama massacre, which claimed at least 40 CRPF jawans’ lives.
Though Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility for the attack, the country’s Prime Minister Imran Khan dismissed the allegations.
Following the terror attack, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi sent a strong message to Pakistan.
“I want to tell the terror outfits and those aiding and abetting them that they have made a big mistake. They will have to pay a very heavy price for their actions. Let me assure the nation that those behind this attack, the perpetrators of this attack will be punished,” he said.
The Pulwama attack is being considered the worst terror attack since the Uri attack in 2016.
Corps Commander of Chinar Corps, Indian Army, Kanwal Jeet Singh Dhillon on Tuesday also sent out a stern warning.
The lieutenant general said that anyone who picks up a gun in Kashmir will be eliminated unless they surrender. He also warned that any terrorist who is entering Kashmir will not go back alive.
