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.

LHC decision is against Article 10A, which ensures the delivery of Natural Justice & Freedom of Speech. #LiftBanOnAltafHussain

As this interim order by LHC is fanciful, arbitrary, and doesn’t fulfil Natural Justice, it can be challenged. #iStandWithAltafHussain
