Is Twitter — an American company — now enforcing Pakistani blasphemy law? It sure looks that way. On Friday, Canadian activist and blogger Ensaf Haidar said she received notification from the social media site that a tweet she posted violated Pakistani law.
According to the Gateway Pundit, the ban was prompted by another tweet asking followers to retweet if they oppose mandatory niqab laws. As of this writing, however, it seems her account is fully functional. Nevertheless, Twitter’s action has many scratching their heads.
This seems to have been the tweet that triggered the speech Nazis at Twitter:
According to Haidar, this was their response:
Funny, Twitter just told me that I'm broken the Pakistan’s law!! pic.twitter.com/ze2EGw63HE

Reaction was rather predictable:
Shame on Twitter, they protect all the radical Islamic countries and groups but accuse for no reason the brave people who stand for tell or show the truth about sharia. They will not silence us ! #FreedomOfSpeech— Rachel Fontaine (@Rakiko_Hime) November 30, 2018
Indeed, it seems that Facebook isn’t the only Silicon Valley social media site now propping up Islamists.
Really! Pak law is the Twitter law. Never knew that. Unbelievable.— Sandhya (@Sandhya191) November 30, 2018
The same Pakistan that send Jihadis to spread terrorism every quarter in India? They're talking about law.— Jay Hind (@JayHind78503759) November 30, 2018
A Canadian citizen breaking Pakistani law while sitting in her house in Canada... Wow @Twitter 👏😂😂— 🇮🇳 Sandeep Rai 🇮🇳 (@ComSandeeprai) November 30, 2018
Indeed. Welcome to “1984,” courtesy of far-left Silicon Valley tech giants.
In 1989, former President George H.W. Bush said that “… the day of the dictator is over.” Sadly, it’s not. Dictators like Saddam Hussein and Adolf Hitler are gone, only to be replaced by another set of dictators, with far more power and absolutely no accountability.
