Armeena Khan is not at all happy with this step by Twitter censoring content related to the Kashmir issue and withholding accounts taking part in the discussion

The Pakistani-Canadian actress has also been vocal about the Kashmir issue on Twitter since the last few days. Being an active humanitarian, Armeena is raising her voice in support of the Kashmiris after India revoked Jammu & Kashmir’s special status.

The Kashmir issue remained the top trend on Twitter throughout this week as people keep sharing their stance on this ongoing debate.

However recently, Armeena Khan has slammed Twitter for censoring content about the Kashmir dispute and withholding accounts talking about it.

Armeena Khan wrote:

Twitter is withholding important voices. This happened to Hamza Abbasi not too long ago on Facebook. I moved here from Facebook because I felt I would not be able to voice my opinions. I guess, I’ll need to look for another platform soon.
