Social media warfare: Pakistan and ISI use Twitter to spread fake and malicious news to spread fear after abrogation of Article 370

To add fuel to the fire, some of the sections of Indian political establishment, pseudo liberal-secular media and intelligentsia are parroting the lines of Pakistan to keep the pot boiling in Kashmir.

Recently, the Narendra Modi-led government has asked micro-blogging site Twitter to suspend eight accounts for spreading rumours about the prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir, following the abrogation of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution.

There was one fake account which pretended to be Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani.

Syed Ali Geelani’s fake account, now suspended.

According to journalist Aditya Raj Kaul, that account was run by the Pakistani Army, solely to spread fake news and indulge in fear mongering.

Recently, the Centre sent a list of eight more such accounts to Twitter India, claiming that these accounts are being operated on the behest of neighbouring Pakistan. These are not all. Days after the Article 370 was abrogated, a pro-separatist Twitter account (@WithKashmir_), also believed to be operated by Pakistani’s ISI and army, was found sharing maliciously edited video of Republic TV’s editor Arnab Goswami. An old video of Arnab Goswami from February 2019 in the wake of Pulwama attack was promoted by that Twitter handle and spread by many Indian ‘journalists’ to project that Arnab had asked for the genocide of Kashmiris. After Republic TV threatened legal action, the account was deleted.

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) had on Monday dismissed as malicious a tweet by a Pakistani journalist about an alleged rift between the central force and the Jammu and Kashmir Police.

Even today, the Jammu and Kashmir Police caught former Pakistan Internal Minister Senator Rehman Malik trying to spread lies after he circulated fake videos on Twitter. Senator Malik had claimed that the Indian Army had used Gunship helicopters to attack villages in Kashmir. He even asked US President Donald Trump to mediate on the Kashmir issue.

However, the Jammu and Kashmir police shot back at Rehman Malik for spreading fake news and also reported his propaganda tweet to Twitter to further action.

There has been a spurt in the spread of fake news and misinformation from both Pakistan and a certain section of Indian media after the historic decision of abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5.

As normalcy is prevailing in the Jammu and Kashmir, the Pakistani establishment seems to be disgruntled and are trying various means to instigate violence against Indians, particularly Hindus in Kashmir. A large number of Pakistanis resorted to hate-mongering and exposed their genocidal tendencies in social media after the Indian government decided to abrogate of Article 370.

Pakistani establishment seems to have lost their mental balance as they attempted to push Kashmiri Muslims to resort to committing genocide against Hindus. Earlier, an ‘intellectual’ from Pakistan has endorsed genocide against Hindus in Kashmir following the abrogation of Article 370. A video had gone viral in which self-proclaimed Pakistani intellectual Tariq Pirzada can be seen instigating Kashmiri Muslims to resort to genocide against Hindus if they settle in Kashmir. He further added that Indians have illegally ‘occupied’ Kashmir just like Jews occupied Palestine.

Earlier it was reported by India Today that cyber experts in the security agencies have found that thousands of fake accounts have been created from Pakistan to peddle fake news, fake videos and propaganda against India.

To add fuel to the fire, some of the sections of Indian political establishment, pseudo liberal-secular media and intelligentsia are parroting the lines of Pakistan to keep the pot boiling in Kashmir. The Congress party and its ecosystem are hell-bent on inciting the people of Jammu and Kashmir by deliberately toeing the Pakistani line on Jammu and Kashmir.

In another video, Mushahid Hussain, a Pakistani politician had revealed people like writer Arundhati Roy, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and political parties like the Congress were “sympathisers” of Pakistan, who can be helpful for the cause of Pakistan.
