Former Muslim, Anti-FGM Campaigner Shazia Hobbs Suspended from Twitter

A Muslim apostate and high profile campaigner against both female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage has been suspended from micro-blogging platform Twitter, amidst a wider crackdown on right wing voices on the website, and other online platforms like Facebook.

Twitter users noticed the prolific writer and campaigner had vanished from the platform Friday. Hobbs had previously spoken at the Unite Against Hate ‘Gays Against Sharia’ march in Manchester, where she spoke out against Muslim rape gangs preying on young white girls.

Hobbs turned away from Islam after escaping an arranged marriage with a physically abusive husband she had been forced into aged 18.

Speaking to Breitbart London, Ms. Hobbs confirmed she has been suspended indefinitely.

“It’s absolutely disgusting,” she told the website. “There was no reason given. Twitter would not tell me what tweets were in violation of their rules. They said it was because of ‘harassment’.

“All I tweet about is the rape of Pakistani children by Pakistani men,” she said.

 

She appealed directly to Twitter which has so far rejected her petition, and condemned the platform for shutting down a voice raising awareness of child sexual abuse in Pakistani British communities.

“No one speaks out against the rape of Pakistani children,” she said.

Suspended for so-called harassment, Ms. Hobbs told Breitbart London that she is frequently called “racist” and accused of being “full of hate” for calling for the jailing of parents who subject their daughters to genital mutilation.

“I get the biggest amount of hate from Pakistani men and ‘feminazis’ who tell me I’m ‘fueling the far right’.

“I’m trying to put a stop to these harmful practices. I’ve had more love and acceptance from the so-called ‘far right’ than from the Pakistani community,” she asserted.

Ms. Hobbs confirmed that someone is now tweeting on her behalf via @notshaziahobbs in order to allow her to continue her campaigning work against child abuse and child rape.
