Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui of Islamabad High Court (IHC) has remarked that those involved in uploading blasphemous content on social media are terrorists…

He said, “If government cannot block such blasphemous pages then it should shut down PTA. If we need to close the entire social media on this count then we will do so.”

He gave these remarks while announcing the orders in the case of uploading of blasphemous material on social media Tuesday.

Justice Shaukat Aziz remarked, “I declare all those as terrorists who upload such blasphemous material on social media.”
