Pak social media abuzz with pro and anti-govt debates

As the Pakistan government and protesters were locked in an intense standoff in the capital, pitched battles were also being fought on the social media with ‘IamNawaz’ and ‘GoNawazGo’ trending on Twitter.

Social networking websites in Pakistan were abuzz with different trends, arguments and debates in support or opposition of political parties.

Supporters of Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Canada-based cleric Tahirul Qadri’s Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) are staging a sit-in outside the Parliament House in a bid to depose Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over alleged rigging in last year’s general election. Top trends in Pakistan on Twitter were #IamNawaz, #GoNawazGo, #RedZone, #ChaloChaloIslamabadChalo and #AwamiParliament.

Political leaders were not far behind in taking swipes at each other on the social media.
