The official Twitter account of the Pakistan government has been withheld in India. On the Twitter page of the official handle, it was written that the account has been withheld in India in response to a legal demand. However, this is not the first strike against Pakistan. The account was earlier withheld and was reactivated, according to an ANI report. People familiar with the matter, however, told HT that the move was taken months ago.

According to Twitter guidelines, the microblogging site takes such action in response to a valid legal demand, such as a court order.

In June, Twitter in India banned official accounts of Pakistan Embassies in UN, Turkey, Iran and Egypt. In August, India blocked 8 YouTube-based news channels, including one operating from Pakistan and one Facebook account for posting "fake, anti-India content" online. So far, the central government has blocked over 100 YouTube channels, 4 Facebook pages, 5 Twitter accounts and 3 Instagram accounts for spreading hate contact against India.
