Twitter warns U.S. writers who violate Pakistan Sharia law
May 2019 – Twitter has warned a number of its users, including columnist Michelle Malkin, that their posts violate Pakistan Sharia laws.
On February 8, Twitter-legal wrote, “You may wish to consult legal counsel about this matter,” even as it denied providing legal advice to users such as Malkin.
She had re-tweeted cartoons about Mohammed. The dozen cartoons were first published in a Danish newspaper in 2005 and were shared by Malkin in 2015.
“There’s no hate, violence, profanity, or pornography – just harmless drawings and peacefully expressed opinions about the Western media’s futile attempts to appease the unappeasable enforcers of Sharia law, which bans all insults of Islam,” wrote Malkin.
She has asked Twitter to explain why U.S. citizens on Twitter are subject to Pakistan’s anti-blasphemy laws. She stated she will continue to re-tweet the questioned post to her 2.1 million followers in support of free speech and thought as protected in America.
