US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pushes Pakistan propaganda, makes false claims about Kashmir

Ever since India abrogated provisions of Article 370 that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the region into two separate Union Territories (UTs) - Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, the terror state of Pakistan and its propaganda machinery across the world has been pushing fake news and anti-India posts to try and internationalise the issue.

Falling for Pakistan’s fake propaganda on Kashmir, Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday made some controversial claims that there were reports of violence, torture and blockage of medical aid and communication in Jammu and Kashmir ever since the region was stripped of its special status by the Indian government in August.

Controversial US lawmaker Cortez retweeted a video of herself posted by a pro-Pakistan Twitter user, where she can be seen scribbling on a poster during a so-called “solidarity march” on Kashmir in New York.

“We stand for the basic human dignity of Kashmiris and support democracy, equality, and human rights for all – including the most vulnerable. Reports of violence & torture are extremely concerning, and the blockade from communication and life-saving medical care must end,” Ocasio– Cortez wrote on her handle after retweeting the Netizen’s video.

Shockingly, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez representing the Bronx retweeted the video posted by a notorious Pakistan fake news peddler, who has a history of tweeting anti-India posts on Kashmir.

Ever since India abrogated provisions of Article 370 that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the region into two separate Union Territories (UTs) – Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, the terror state of Pakistan and its propaganda machinery across the world has been pushing fake news and anti-India posts to try and internationalise the issue. To strengthen Pakistan’s fake news propaganda, several liberal-secular media and intelligentsia in the country have played their part by publishing anti-India reports.

On the other hand, New Delhi has maintained that its constitutional changes are strictly an internal matter and will usher in development in the region, which was stagnated due to separatism and terrorism for the last few decades.

A bewildered and shocked Pakistan was has gone all out to internationalise the Kashmir issue and published propaganda on the issue of Kashmir. However, the international community has rejected Pakistan’s lies while firmly standing with India on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir.

Several media, both Indian and international, have resorted to pro-Pakistan propaganda as they had claimed of continued violence and blocking of healthcare facilities to the injured in the region in the aftermath of the abrogation of Article 370. The Indian government and the armed forces have denied the allegations and stressed that the situation is coming back to normal.
