Pakistani civil servant Danyal Gilani spreads hilarious fake news, gets caught

Gilani has now deleted the tweet but continues to believe the fake bravado of Pakistan

Parody nation Pakistan, which is hell-bent on proving that they have a moral victory after their air force attacked Indian military installations after India destroyed JeM terror camps in Pakistan, has taken to spreading fake news regarding their bravado. Pakistani civil servant, Danyal Gilani, last night took to Twitter to inform everyone that Lockheed Martin, the company that manufactured the F16 which Pakistani Army flew inside Indian air space, is now planning to file a lawsuit against India.

Danyal Gilani’s tweet spreading fake news, now deleted.

Danyal Gilani is David Coleman Headley’s half brother. Headley is one of the co-conspirators of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.

In his tweet, Gilani shared a news link from a dubious website ‘wnobserver’, which is privately registered in the US, but most of the authors in the team consist of bloggers and fiction authors based in Pakistan, which claims that the F-16 manufacturer will file a lawsuit against India’s ‘false claims’. The article attributes the quote to ‘Lockheed Martin’ which has “expressed its annoyance over the factually incorrect statement by Indian Foreign Office spokesperson regarding alleged shooting down Pakistan’s F-16 by IAF on February 27, 2019.”

The article claims that the US company finds India’s claims of shooting down F16 ‘outrageous’ and ‘disrespect to the sophistication and repute of this Avionics excellence.’ Pakistan has still maintained that their F16 is intact, despite Indian armed forces displaying parts of the wreckage of the aircraft. “The company also claims that since all F-16s on Pakistani inventory are well counted for hence it is obvious that the story by India is concocted for political gains by incumbent government at the cost of F-16s reputation globally,” the article attributes to Lockheed Martin.

Hence, now that India has made the ‘false claim’ of having shot down the F16, the company will file a lawsuit.

However, Lockheed Martin responded to Gilani and stated clearly in as many words that the company has made no such statement.

That the article was shared as factual and not satire shows that Pakistan would rather believe fake news showing them in a good light rather than accepting that they lost an aircraft, and perhaps a pilot too, who has not been acknowledged by them. Despite ample evidence of F16 being downed by a MiG 21, Gilani, like many others, refuses to accept they lost an aircraft, and perhaps a pilot.

Pakistanis are having a hard time believing that Indian Air Force actually destroyed the terror camps thriving on their soils. When Air Marshal C Hari Kumar retired on February 28, out of turn after 39 years of illustrious service, he was propagated in Pakistani media as if he was ‘sacked’ for failing Indian side. Meanwhile, panic-stricken Pakistan keeps its airspace shut till March 4, four airports partially opened but airlines avoid operations
