PTA is required to take proper action Facebook

Parlia­­mentary Committee on Kashmir

During the chairmanship of the Parlia­­mentary Committee on Kashmir meeting, Afridi wondered why PTA officials did not crack down on Facebook and why Pakistan’s social media platforms were not blocked after the website did not comply with government guidelines.

A delegation from the All-Party Congress (APHC) of Hurriyat and other representatives attended the meeting. The chairman of the Canada-Pakistan Global Conference, Chaudhry Zafar, also attended the meeting through an online platform.

The committee unanimously passed two resolutions condemning India’s recent practices. And the deployment of troops in Jammu and Kashmir, which illegally occupied India, and the recent terrorist attacks on Canadian Muslim families.

The committee also approved a road map that includes overseas visits to pressure the Kashmir issue. Retired Maj Gen, PTA chairman Amir Azim Bajwa briefed the committee on the actions taken against the Facebook government following the recent blocking of Pakistani user accounts and pages.

He said that the PTA had notified social media platforms of concerns about the censorship of human rights defenders in Pakistan and Kashmir. They have written articles about the situation in occupied Kashmir.

However, the committee chairman argued with Bajwa and asked why Facebook and Twitter have not yet opened an office in Pakistan. Also, referring to Facebook’s statement about blocking multiple accounts and pages of Pakistani users, Afridi asked the head of the PTA what actions his organization had taken against the Facebook team and asked why Facebook representatives were refused to attend the meeting.

He instructed the PTA supervisor to ensure that Facebook employees attend the next group meeting. Finally, Afridi ordered all interested parties to be invited to the next meeting of the committee to discuss outstanding issues.

APHC coordinator Syed Faiz Naqshbandi praised Afridi and also stated that Kashmiris are generally very satisfied with the diplomatic proposal put forward by the Pakistani government.

He briefed the committee members on the latest developments in Jammu and Kashmir illegally occupied by India and said that there are rumors that India plans to move the capital of the territory from Srinagar, which is mainly Muslim, to Jammu, which is mainly Hindu, to consolidate its occupation.

The Committee took note of occupied Kashmir’s reports of military buildups and the upcoming new conspiracy to further divide and halve the state of Jammu and Kashmir. It warned the Indian government of further illegal activities that violated the United Nations’ resolutions on changing the demographics of occupied territories and disputed territories.
