This post is useful to understand the politics of blocking and unblocking on Twitter.

As a Shia Hazara activist, it was painful for me to observe on 2-7 October 2011 how certain urban “liberal” elites in Pakistani media and civil society (namely Ali Dayan Hasan, Raza Rumi and Marvi Sirmed) collectively harassed a Hazara activist (a propagandist of Abdul Khaliq Hazara’s Hazara Democratic Party HDP), M. Saleem Javed, forcing him to mend his ways and discourse consistent with their own narratives.

Please read the following conversation from bottom to top in order to see how urban fake liberals were able to harass and bring an impressionable Hazara activist in line with their own discourse.
