Addressing a press conference in Islamabad along with National Security Advisor Dr. Moeed Yousuf, he said that baseless propaganda was being spread on social media against Pakistan, which was led by India. The biggest players in Pakistan are the Pashtun Tehreek Movement (PTM) and its workers.
Fawad Chaudhry said that according to Disinfolibe, 845 websites were used against Pakistan. PTM started and got support from India. Karima Baloch’s death was a top trend, even though she was a Canadian citizen, her death was natural. The PTM tweeted 20,000 times that the state had killed Karima Baloch. In addition, a trend was started regarding Zulfi Bukhari’s visit to Israel.
Speaking on the occasion, National Security Adviser Dr. Moeed Yousuf said that efforts were being made to lay the rubble of 20 years of failure in Afghanistan on Pakistan. The Taliban war is going on in Afghanistan but Afghan and Indian accounts are being used against Pakistan.
The Information Minister further said that Pakistan is facing a huge media war. Fake news is used against Pakistan. Too many TLP tweets received so much support from India. Outsiders are involved in spreading all kinds of riots in Pakistan.
He said that a large part of TLP’s 400,000 tweets was from Ahmedabad, India. In the Noor Muqaddam case, a whole campaign was launched on social media that Pakistan is not safe for women.
