Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi was heckled at a conference in London by a social media activist. 

The activist claimed that his Twitter handle was shut down because the government of Pakistan did not agree with his views.

The incident took place during 'Defend Media Freedom' conference. 

Ironically, Qureshi was accused of curbing the freedom of expression while he was speaking about protecting media and freedom of expression.
