Indian army veteran uses an image from the set of a film to prove Pakistani military presence in Panjshir
An ex-Indian army officer posts a photo from the film set as the “truth” concerning the Pakistan Army’s involvement in Panjshir. Bakhsi claimed, without providing any evidence, that dozens of Pakistani soldiers were killed and several others were injured while fighting alongside the Taliban in Panjshir.
This confusion arose after Maj Gen GD Bakshi, another former Indian army general, tweeted that the Pakistan Army had “suffered very severe casualties” in Panjshir, where the Taliban and resistance fighters engaged in heavy battle earlier this month.
Bakshi, who served in the Indian army for many years and has a Ph.D. in military history, is well-known for spreading bogus news and hyperbole on Indian television. Last year, the Indian daily The Print referred to him as the “shrillest warmonger in the media.”

This is the truth on #PanjshirValley and Pak casualties. As expected @YusufMoeed lied and Pak disowned its dead. This shameful nation with a shameful leadership refuses to honour its dead. Instead buries them at night to avoid publicity. Nothing can be more degrading for soldiers pic.twitter.com/OlANAWJ0a5

In response to his latest claims about Pakistani soldiers, a Pakistani account with the handle @Fauji Doctor shared a photo from the set of the 2017 Pakistani film “Yalghaar” ostensibly to mock the Indian ex-officer and wrote, ” My class fellow from school days Maj Aijaj 2nd from left and Capt Jufar 1st from left embraced martyrdom in Panjshir. They were buried yesterday in Peshawar. ISPR is trying to hide these casualties. They fought bravely and should be honored as such. This is injustice by Pak Army.”
