Islamabad   -  The Twitter handle of Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) chief Khadim Hussain Rizvi was suspended late Sunday, reported private TV channels. The page shows “account suspended” when the handle is accessed.

Earlier, Interior Minister Fawad Chaudhry during a talk at an event had said that Twitter had refused the government’s request to take down Rizvi’s account. The account has been tweeting since four days while the social media site has refused to take it down, he said.

Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari tweeted the same when questioned as to why the government isn’t writing to social media sites, including Facebook, to suspend the accounts.
