Social media platform X blocked in Pakistan over national security, ministry says

Pakistan's interior ministry has confirmed that it blocked access to social media platform X, previously known as Twitter, during the country's election in February. The government cited national security concerns as the reason for the shutdown. X users in Pakistan have reported difficulties accessing the platform since mid-February. The ministry stated in a court submission that the ban was imposed due to X's failure to comply with government directives and address concerns regarding the misuse of its platform. The ban remains in place, though some government officials are believed to be using X via VPN software.
