For those who conduct polls in Gulf countries: how an Emirati professor was compelled to remove a twitter poll

So UAE professor, Abdul-khaliq Abdullah, posted a Twitter poll in which he asks people whether they approve or disapprove of the "isolation and boycott" of Qatar. Results quickly showed that 64% strongly disapproved.  He was then urged to remove the twitter poll and told that the results in fact violated the laws of the UAE.  He agreed with this and removed it.
