After outrage, HRD ministry deletes tweet promoting Malala Yousafzai, who had spread fake news against India on article 370

This is not the first time that a govt handle has made such gaffes. It may be recalled that during the anti-CAA riots at Jamia Millia Islamia University, the official twitter account of PIB had posted in favour of Jamia’s violent protesters, which was later claimed as an "error by an employee".

On Wednesday, Minister of Human Resource Development led by Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank committed a gaffe after it tweeted a post glorifying controversial ‘activist’ Malala Yousafzai who had spread fake news against India after the abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir.

The HRD ministry had posted an infographic on micro-blogging site Twitter asking the social media users to recognize who he/she was. The infographic, part of the quiz “identify the author series” read, “Guess Who?”, while the post gave a hint to the users by glorifying Malala as a “famous female author, a Nobel Prize winner and an activist defending the right to education for women”.

The tweet Posted by MHRD.

It is important to note that Malala Yousafzai had indulged in propagating terrorist state of Pakistan’s false propaganda on Jammu and Kashmir soon after Modi government had scrapped Article 370 that gave special status to the erstwhile state.

Malala Yousafzai had resorted to fear-mongering and attempted to incite Muslims by falsely claiming that the precautionary restrictions placed in the state were impeding girl child education and also peddled lies in the process.

She had also parroted fake Pakistan propaganda after she attempted to sell ‘fiction’ stories as the reality of the state of Jammu and Kashmir following the revocation of special status in the state. In doing so, ‘Nobel laureate’ Malala was caught peddling lies by social media users and was also schooled for her ignorance on the ongoing issue.

The act of Ministry of HRD to glorify controversial pro-Pakistan activist Malala Yousafzai earned the ire of Twitter users on Thursday. Social media users called it ‘shameful’

One user also called out HRD ministry’s ignorance regarding local heroes and accused the ministry of carrying public relation activity for Malala.

Another user asked why is HRD ministry approving and mainstream haters of India and also urged the BJP leadership to focus on the HRD ministry. Others expressed disappointment over the handling of such an important ministry in a bad manner for the past six years.

As social media users condemned the glorification of Malala Yousafzai, the HRD Ministry realised its mistake and deleted the tweet.
