My twitter account @mkatju was suspended by Twitter a few days back.
In this connection I wish to say :
1. No reason was given for doing this, and I was not communicated any tweet or tweets of mine which twitter regarded objectionable.
2. If I had posted any tweet(s) which twitter regarded objectionable, that could have been deleted by twitter and I could have been given a warning, informing me of.my tweet which twitter found unacceptable, and telling me not to repeat it or similar ones. Suspension should only have been done if I paid no heed to the warning.
3. Twitter should clarify whether it regards calling a politician or political party corrupt as hate speech, even if there is overwhelming proof of this e.g. regarding former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif who figure prominently in the Panama Papers scandal, and have amassed huge assets in UK and elsewhere, as mentioned in the links below :

My guess is that it was because of my tweets against these corrupt political leaders that my twitter account was suspended.
I again request you to reconsider your decision and restore my twitter account
