Below is the previous updates on the event:

Social Media activists in Pakistan have launched the drive against Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) official website, PakistanTribe.com reported.

According to the details available to PT (PakistanTribe), Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has been approached with the demand to ban the TTP’s website.

Written complain sent to the PTA stated that “TTP’s website is accessible” in Pakistan where IMDB and XBox like websites have no permission to interact with users.

” While the authorities do not even blink before blocking access to websites like IMDB and XBox, why was an official website for a terrorist group left unblocked?” the complain mentioned.

The draft of the complain also highlights the consequences of TTP’s functional website.

Here is the detail of complain draft sent to the PTA by Pakistani Social Media activists:

“The website carries propaganda material that clearly incites violence, especially against security forces. Can you please tell me why there has been no action on such blatant display of hate speech? While the authorities do not even blink before blocking access to websites like IMDB and XBox, why was an official website for a terrorist group left unblocked? Please note this is not the only website that incites violence, several other websites exist and have been functioning for years. Still, it is rather shocking to see the TTP’s website being launched very publicly in Pakistan, where the group is responsible for murdering over 50,000 civilians.

This is just one example how flawed the current process is.”
