KARACHI: The Sindh High Court(SHC) has ordered the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to restore the suspended social media site X across the country.

In the statement released by the court, it has been said that the X service should be restored without any interruption or shutdown.

The petitioner’s lawyer said that the Minister of Interior has stated that the directive to close X has not been issued. The Prime Minister, the Interior Minister, and the Minister of IT are using X by installing a VPN and telling the nation that X is not closed.

Chief Justice of Sindh High Court Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi inquired about who closed the sites and who ordered to keep them closed.

The petitioner’s lawyer said that only the PTA has the authority to shut down the X, to keep the service slow.

The petitioner’s lawyer said that this application is different from the case. The day Commissioner Rawalpindi stated how we rigged X has been closed since that day.
