As detentions under the cyber crime bill continue, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that anti-army content on social media will not be tolerated.
“For the last two weeks, posts making a mockery of Pakistan Army have surfaced,” he said in a press briefing on Tuesday. “After the ISPR tweet and its subsequent clarification, the reaction I saw on social media was a matter of concern for me,” he said. “Such posts are not tolerable.”
In this context, Nisar said, he directed the FIA to take appropriate action.
“Twenty-seven IDs have been identified… eight people were identified who were running some of these accounts, of which six were interviewed and the rest are in queue. There have been no arrests and no harassment,” he claimed.
