Pakistan has called upon the United Nations and UNHRC to immediately begin investigation and de-listing of the ten fake NGOs created by India to malign Pakistan.

This was stated by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi while addressing a joint news conference along with Special Assistant on National Security Moeed Yousuf in Islamabad today.

 

They was briefing the media in context of a recent report by EU DisinfoLab that contained details of India’s propaganda and influence operations against Pakistan.

 

The Foreign Minister said we also call on the United Nations to create processes that ensure that the international system is not manipulated through such influence operations.

 

He said the EU Parliament should also begin a credible investigation into the manipulation of the EU Parliament and its legislative process by these fake organizations involved in anti-Pakistan propaganda under a fully funded disinformation and influence operation, run by India.

 

The Minister said we also call on international news agencies especially Reuters to reconsider their existing partnership with ANI news agency – now proven to be pushing fake news from two fake Indian created websites repeatedly. Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the scope and extent of India’s operations against Pakistan under their hybrid war is now apparent for the world to see. He said Pakistan will take all necessary actions to protect its interests. Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the EU DisinfoLab report contains detail of India’s online and offline operations during the last 15 years.

Citing the report, he said 750 fake websites were run from 116 countries. Additionally, ten NGOs working with UN Human Rights Council and 550 websites were used through fake identity.

He said India staged fake demonstrations in different countries. He said India also formed fake parliamentary groups like “Friends of Gilgit-Baltistan and “Friends of Balochistan.” He said the purpose was to mislead the European Union and the United Nations through wrong information.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said India’s news agency ANI fed stories based on wrong information to various international media organizations. He said fake magazine EPtoday.com was also used for the purpose.

Speaking on the occasion, Moeed Yusuf said these Indian actions involve criminality and it is breach of international laws. He said the Indian state is acting as a mafia to malign Pakistan at international level through fake material. He urged the UN machinery and Human Rights Council to see into these facts as to how world organizations were used to spread propaganda. A senior Indian Diplomat was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today to register Pakistan’s strong protest over ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC) on 9th December 2020, resulting in serious injuries to an innocent civilian. Due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian occupation forces in Hotspring Sector of the LoC, 55 year old Naseem Fatima w/o Sabir Shah, resident of Tai Mohra village, sustained serious injuries. The Indian occupation forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary (WB) have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars and automatic weapons. This year, India has committed 2940 ceasefire violations to date, resulting in 27 shahadats and serious injuries to 247 innocent civilians. Condemning the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, it was underscored that such senseless acts are in clear violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding, and are also against all established humanitarian norms and professional military conduct. These egregious violations of international law reflect consistent Indian attempts to escalate the situation along the LoC and are a threat to regional peace and security. It was added that by raising tensions along the LoC and the WB, India cannot divert attention from the grave human rights situation in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK). The Indian side was called upon to respect the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding, investigate this and other such incidents of deliberate ceasefire violations and maintain peace along the LoC and the WB. The Indian side was also urged to allow the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolutions.
