Reportedly, the Pakistan government's official account in India was restricted to be viewed in India in October 2022. This account was also withheld earlier in July 2022 as well but had been reactivated and was visible.
Action in response to a valid legal demand
According to Twitter guidelines, the microblogging site takes such action in response to a valid legal demand, such as a court order. Currently, the Twitter feed of the Pakistan government "@GovtofPakistan" is not visible to Indian users. A response from Twitter, India and Pakistan's IT ministries is still awaited. In June last year, Twitter in India banned official accounts of Pakistan Embassies in the United Nations, Turkey, Iran and Egypt.
