Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf has denounced its supporters who use explicit language on social media networks against critiques (of all levels) for defending their party.
An official statement issued by PTI said that PTI cannot take responsibility for acts of any individual or any content posted by them to which it has no administrative control.
“But as a party policy it does publicly denounce individuals who use abusive language or engage in illegal activities”, the statement said.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf further said that it does not support any form of hacking of website(s), Facebook pages or Twitter accounts regardless of how adverse the point of view might actually be.
PTI Social Media Team does take this opportunity to reinforce the message of “Social Media Responsibility” as presented by the Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, urging supporters to show dignity and respect when discussing politics online.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf was alleged for covering supporters using abusive and explicit language against anti-PTI individuals. They were also alleged for hacking Facebook pages of anti-PTI TV anchors/shows.
PTI has specifically disowned “Insaaf Cyber Team”, a self proclaimed cyber team working for PTI, that was involved in hacking of various facebook pages that were against PTI.
