Canadian Woman Suspended from Twitter for Violating… Pakistani Anti-Blasphemy Law

Evidently the Pakistani government is in charge of Twitter now.

Ensaf Haidar, a Canadian citizen and activist, received an email from Twitter after she tweeted out against wearing the Muslim niqab garment.
Haidar is the wife of imprisoned Saudi-Canadian blogger Raif Badaw.

Haider asked her followers to retweet if they were against mandatory niqab laws.

Twitter sent Ensaf an email and blocked her account.

They said she violated Pakistani law.

Ensaf lives in Canada.

Via The Donald Reddit:

Ensaf Haidar’s account has since been restored.
