Pakistan President gets notice for tweeting fake news, ‘human rights minister’ calls Twitter a ‘Modi mouthpiece’

As Arif Alvi did not delete the tweet despite pushing false information, the Twitter may have sent a 'notice' to President Arif Alvi regarding his tweet on Kashmir situation.

Arif Alvi, the President of the parody country Pakistan, has been served with a notice by micro-blogging site on Monday for spreading disinformation regarding the Kashmir situation.

In a Twitter post, President Alvi had shared a video of a protest march organised in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir while claiming that the protests had instead happened in Kashmir valley.

“This is Srinagar yesterday despite curfews, bans, blackouts, teargas & firing. No amount of oppression & brutality can suppress the resentment of the Kashmiris against India. They want freedom at all costs. Please retweet and let the world know,” read his propaganda post.

In the video, it can be clearly seen that flags of Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir, which Pakistan refers to it as Azad Kashmir, is being displayed in the protest march indicating that the protest march had happened in the PoK and not in the Kashmir valley.

As Arif Alvi did not delete the tweet despite pushing false information, the Twitter may have sent a ‘notice’ to President Arif Alvi regarding his tweet on Kashmir situation.

Shireen Mazari, Human Rights Minister of Pakistan took to micro-blogging site to vent out her anger against Twitter for sending a notice to Arif Alvi, claimed that Twitter has gone too far and blamed them for being a mouthpiece of the ‘rogue Modi government’. The minister took to social media to share the image of Twitter email regarding the president’s personal account.

“Twitter has really gone too far in becoming a mouthpiece of the Rogue Modi govt! They sent a notice to our President! In bad taste and simply ridiculous,” said Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari.

However, in its notice, Twitter has said that it has investigated the report content and did not find any violations of the Twitter rules. One wonders how Twitter has turned into a Modi Agent for actually finding no fault with the President of the parody nation tweeting fake news. In fact, the microblogging website should be held accountable for not taking action against clear fake news tweeted by the President of Pakistan.

It is also noteworthy that such emails are often sent when a tweet is reported to Twitter and this does not mean that it was the Indian government that had reported the tweeted. In fact, given the bizarre conduct of Pakistan, one wouldn’t be surprised if low IQ Pakistanis had themselves reported the tweet erroneously. Even so, any Twitter user from within India or outside should be reporting a tweet that spreads fake news.

Sidelined and pushed into a corner for its habit of using terrorism as a state policy, Pakistan is now openly indulging in fake news to fear-monger and incite violence in India. Following India’s historic move to strip Article Article 370, which granted a special status to Jammu and Kashmir state and a subsequent bill aimed to bifurcate the state into two Union Territories, Pakistani establishment seems to have lost their mental balance.
