PTA Suspends Mobile Broadband on Interior Ministry’s Orders

PTA Suspends Mobile Broadband on Interior Ministry’s Orders:

The interior ministry requested the suspension of mobile broadband service nationwide, a request later confirmed by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority.

Netblocks reported that Imran Khan’s detention on the grounds of the Islamabad High Court in connection with the Al-Qadir Trust case resulted in Pakistani internet users being unable to access Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube.

Additionally, according to Netblocks, several areas had complete internet outages.

“Real-time network data show the disruption in effect on some but not all mobile and fixed-line internet providers in Pakistan at the time of writing. The study is taken from an initial sample size of 60 measurements from 30 vantage points across Pakistan,” it added.

The report suggests using a virtual private network to circumvent “government internet censorship measures” and prevent disruptions.

The organisation stated:

“Metrics are consistent with an intentional disruption to service applied centrally at Pakistan’s national internet backbone.

“NetBlocks recommends against the use of network disruptions and social media restrictions to limit political speech, given their disproportionate impact to fundamental rights including freedom of expression and freedom assembly.”

PTI Chief Imran Khan Arrested

Rangers arrested former Prime Minister Imran Khan from outside Islamabad High Court, where he had gone to seek bail in multiple FIRs registered against him in the Al-Qadir Trust case.

Moreover, The law enforcement agency took him into custody from the courtroom and transported him in a black Vigo.

Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court Justice Amir Farooq summoned the Inspector General of Police in Islamabad and the Additional Attorney General over the sudden arrest of PTI chairman Imran Khan.

Furthermore, IHC chief justice said that he would summon the prime minister in case the IG Police did not appear in the court in 15 days.

Arrest Warrant

Also, PTI supporters have expressed their anger and disappointment regarding the decision, asserting that the authorities did not arrest Imran Khan but rather abducted him.
