Twitter Suspends Pakistan Defence’s Account

Twitter suspended Pakistan Defence’s account for posting morphed photo of Indian girl

Kawalpreet Kaur, a student at the University of Delhi, had recently posted a photo of herself standing in front of Jama Masjid and holding a placard that read –  I am a citizen of India and I stand with secular values of our constitution.

On Saturday The Twitter handle @defencepk, which is Pak Defence’s verified Twitter handle, posted the same photo but with a morphed message that read – I am an Indian but I hate India, because India is a colonial entity that has occupied nations such as Nagas, Kahmiris, Manipuris, Hyderabad, Junagarh, Sikkim, Mizoram, Goa.

Pakistan Defence had deleted the tweet some time later, but after receiving numerous complaints about the morphed photo, Twitter suspended the account, and it is still offline as of today.

Kawalpreet on the other hand, urged people to not show hatred towards Pakistan saying that a lot of her friends from across the border also condemned the act of the photo being morphed.
