Punjab books chief calls inappropriate Twitter activity a ‘hack’

The chief of Punjab’s books and curriculum regulatory authority has denied allegations of inappropriate Twitter activity, calling it a “a social media hack”. Rai Manzoor Hussain Nasir was called out for hypocrisy over social media after he banned at least 100 books with blasphemous content, but was spotted ‘liking’ a porn video clip from his account on Twitter.

The Punjab Curriculum and Textbook Board (PCTB) Managing Director then issued a statement through his Twitter account in which he said he fired least 10 employees he claimed were involved in “corruption” and “security breaches on my personal Twitter account”.

Nasir said he was “accused of liking an immoral picture on Twitter and also of making inappropriate comments on photographs” after he banned at least 100 books on July 23.

“I deny these allegations emphatically and maintain that I have been the victim of a social media hack. I am making every effort to secure my social media accounts going forward,” he added.

Terming the questionable activity on his Twitter account as an “obvious attempt at character assassination”, he said he would continue leading the PCTB responsibly.
