Clamours on social media for lifting ban on Altaf Hussain

KARACHI: The media blackout on MQM chief Altaf Hussain ordered by the Lahore High Court drew critical response from citizens on the social media who termed the court decision as gag on freedom of speech.

Pakistani Twitteratis started a hashtag ‘LifeBanOnAltafHussain’ to oppose the LHC order against Mr. Hussain. The MQM chief got himself into hot water after his criticism on Pakistan armed forces.

Some Twitter users even went on to the length to question ‘rationale’ of the verdict, arguing why the radicals and leaders of banned outfits were not collared for their remarks against the army.

Here are the tweets emerging in support of Mr. Altaf Hussain.
