Dawn: Pakistan’s online clampdown

Dawn: Pakistan’s online clampdown. “On the afternoon of June 3, 2018 — with the general elections only a month away — many users on Twitter took to the microblogging platform to express their inability to access a website operated by the Awami Workers Party (AWP). Once accessible to several users on various internet providers of the country, it now directed visitors to a message stating that the website was ‘not accessible’ because ‘it contains content that is prohibited for viewership from within Pakistan’. The website, however, was accessible to users outside the country.”
