Indian Chronicles: Anti Pakistan Propagation Campaign Busted
The European Union (EU) has revealed in an investigative report that India has been conducting a systematic campaign based on fake news for the past 15 years, aimed at protecting India’s interests in the region and misleading the European Union and the United Nation.
A report titled Indian Chronicles released by EU DisinfoLab the European Union’s investigative body for counterfeit news said 750 media outlets, 10 inactive organizations and human rights groups were involved in spreading fake news to achieve their goals and used the name of a professor who died in 2006.
According to the report, the campaign was led by India’s Srivastava Group since 2005 and was expanded through India’s news agency Asian News Network and thus published news on fake entities from the ANI platform, so that it can be considered real news.
According to the report, the purpose of this Indian operation was to protect Indian interests in the region and to bring down other countries, especially Pakistan, all over the world. The campaign portrayed the former president of the European Parliament as the head of a fake NGO. Accusations were levelled against Pakistan in the Human Rights Council with the help of NGOs.
