Yet again micro-blogging site Twitter has suspended hundreds of Pakistani Twitter accounts expressing support with the people of Indian occupied Kashmir, it emerged on Saturday.

The platform was used by thousands of Pakistani and Kashmiri users to heap praise on Prime Minister Imran Khan for raising the Kashmir issue and exposing the Indian government’s policy of ethnic cleansing during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly session on Friday.

Following the speech, social media users posted thousands of tweets to eulogise their leader by using the hashtag "Voice of Kashmir”, which became a global trending topic.

Soon, Pakistani Twitter accounts using the hashtag were suspended. 

To record their protest, thousands of Pakistani users started posted Tweets under the hashtag #IndiaHijackedTwitter.

A large number of users also tagged Twitter CEO Jack Patrick Dorsey in their messages, accusing the portal of attempting to suppress their voice against Indian atrocities.

They demanded Twitter immediately activate the suspended accounts.
