India bombs Pakistan, Pakistan responds by vandalising Wikipedia article on the Uri terrorist attack of 2016

An anonymous user from Karachi vandalised the Uri attach wiki page to say it was done by Hindu terrorists

On the day the Indian Air force destroyed the terrorist camps of Jaish‑e‑Mohammed in Pakistan, avenging the Pulwama terror attack, someone resorted to vandalising the Wikipedia page of the 2016 Uri Attack.

One user heavily edited the Wikipedia article to say that the attack on an Army base in 2016 in Uri was done by “RSS terrorists”. The editor had replaced most references to Pakistan to India, resulting in the article saying India was promoting terrorism, not Pakistan.

The editing of the Wikipedia article was done without signing into the website, therefore the IP address from where the vandalization was done was visible in place of a user name, as per Wikipedia policy.

We looked up the IP address,, to know its location, and it seems that the user is from Pakistan. According to online IP address location lookup tools, the IP address belongs to Fiberlink Private Limited, a Pakistan based Internet Service Provider, and the internet connection is located in Karachi city.

The vandalism on the article has now been removed as Wikipedia editors have reverted the changes made by the person from Pakistan.

The attack on the Indian Army brigade headquarters in Uri on 18 September 2016 was conducted by four Pakistan based Jaish‑e‑Mohammed terrorists, which had left 17 soldiers dead before the terrorists could be neutralised. Following the attack, the Indian Army had conducted retaliatory surgical strikes the terrorist launch pads in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir on 29th September.
