Pakistan has banned Elon Musk's social media platform X (Twitter). The Pakistani government ordered the ban on X in February itself, citing security concerns. But today the government of Pakistan has officially confirmed the ban on this X.

However, Pakistan's Sindh High Court has directed the government to lift the ban on Elon Musk-owned microblogging site X. According to the report, the court has asked the Pakistan government to lift the ban on X within a week.

The Pakistani government cited security issues

According to an affidavit filed by the government of Pakistan in the Sindh High Court, the ban was necessitated by X's failure to address national security concerns, due to misuse of the X platform. However, currently no official statement has been released by X regarding this ban.

'X' banned in Pakistan from February 2024

In February this year, several Pakistani users shared details about the issue of not being able to use X on other social media platforms. That means X could not be used from February 2024 this year. According to the report, Twitter is not working in Pakistan from February 2024. This ban imposed in Pakistan confirms that social media platforms have been suspended in Pakistan for a long time. Many users have also confirmed the ban on X via Virtual Private Network (VPN).

This is the real reason for the ban

In the details of the ban on Twitter, it is said that the general election of the National Assembly was held in Pakistan on February 8. Meanwhile, the government of Pakistan had blocked many social media platforms. Internet services were also suspended for the whole day on the polling day in Pakistan. However, after the election, many social media platforms started working again as before. But users were not able to access Twitter.

In such a situation, the Sindh High Court of Pakistan ordered the Telecom Authority of Pakistan to restore the service of the X platform, but the government did not restore the service of X. Now the government has filed an affidavit in the court calling X a threat to national security.
