At a new low, Pakistan President Arif Alvi leads Troll Army of Pakistan on Social Media Platforms like Twitter. He shared a fake, doctored video in one of his tweets, showing the situation of Indian Kashmir in bad light. There was a great condemnation of his action on the social media.
As per a social media user we spoke with, “This is very unfortunate that a head of state President Arif Alvi leads the Pakistan troll army and doing what his paid trolls are doing. He has even disrespected the title of “President”. He is no different from the troll army ISPR is churning out to spread their filth on the Social Media platforms like Twitter, FaceBook etc with their Fake and doctored video to spread hatred among different religious communities that may result in communal violence leading to the death of many innocent civlians”
Pakistan President Dr. Arif Alvi on his Twitter handle @ArifAlvi tweeted, “This is Srinagar yesterday despite curfews, bans, blackouts, teargas & firing. They want freedom at all costs. Please retweet and let the world know.”
We have attached the video for our readers as we prove it was fake and doctored.
We decided to analyze the video and prove it is Fake and Doctored.
VOA news released the Video titled “Clashes in Kashmir After Friday Prayers” (Link Embedded) on 24-August 2019. Here is the Video we are uploading for our Readers.
You can compare the video released by Arif Alvi as he leads his Troll Army with VOA news Logo and the actual video released by VOA news and both the Logos are in different colors.
You will find that the Arif Alvi video is made by cutting clips from different videos and some of which match with Turkish TRT World video released on 17 Aug 2019 with title “Kashmir Tensions: Protesters call for end to lockdown in region”
Turkey as the whole world knows is the only country in the world supporting Pakistan besides China. The video of TRT World released on 17-Aug 2019 has the same locations and same protests with the same banners as that in the Pakistani President Arif Alvi Video as he leads his Troll Army on 24-August 2019. However in Alvi video you will find more such smaller clips from different locations, different periods, which were neither part of the TRT world Video nor the VOA Video. Interesting thing to note in the video is that, in large part of Arif Alvi video, there is no security personnel in the whole video. The alleged protests are taking place, in a place that entire world is told under lockdown by security forces, Section 144 is in place and people cannot come out in large marches and rallies unlike shown in the video.
In the beginning of the Arif Alvi video you can see a group of protesters protesting in a particular street, where on the right side, there is a park. Note the kind of banners and Flags held by the protesters. (See the Screenshot and notice the Park on the right side)
Now watch another video from Associated Press (AP) released titled “Kashmiris in India offer Eid al-Adha prayers, protest” (Link to video embedded) published on 17-Aug 2019 for the same street when the Curfew was relaxed for Friday Prayers on 16-Aug 2019 and a large crowd could be seen going towards the Mosque. Note that this video is also made by clubbing many small clips showing a huge crowd when as per all Media sources there was a curfew in Kashmir Valley. In this video also Security forces can no where be seen despite the Curfew and Section 144 in place. (Uploaded the Video from AP below for readers convenience). Watch carefully between 00:30 to 00:37 seconds.
We are attaching below a screenshot from the video from AP from 00:30 to 00:37 seconds. You can see a similar crowd as in Arif Alvi video and in the AP video, however the banners and posters carried by the crowd in the Arif Alvi video are missing in the AP released video. Check the screenshot taken from AP released video for the alleged same event, same place and compare it with above posted screenshot from Alivi Video for the alleged same event and same place. (See the Screenshot and notice the Park on the right side)
Another point to note is that the VOA logo that appears on Arif Aliv continuously in 2 minutes video gives the impression that the video is released by VOA News. However as we already provided the link to VOA News video, you will see that the logo of VOA News is different from the one appearing in the Arif Alvi Video. (Compare the colors in logos both screenshots and videos uploaded above).
We also checked on the YouTube Channel of VOA News (Link embedded for readers for reference) and noted that there was only one Video released by VOA News on 24-August 2019 for which we have provided the link above.
It clearly means that the video of Arif Alvi and TRT World (Turkish Media) are made from the same raw footage that was taken much before the abrogation of Article 370 by the Indian Government and those clips have been stitched together to form a 2 minutes doctored and fake video by Arif Alvi as he leads his Troll Army to malign India.
Hence we can conclude that the Arif Alivi video released is a doctored video with the malicious intent to create a delusion that the people of Indian Kashmir are protesting.
Pakistan Sponsored Islamist Jihad Movement and not a Freedom Fight
It should be noted that the as we covered in our previous article, the changes in the Indian constitution will have impact on a few people. There would be small protests. The video shows the protests by people. But does not show any firing by Indian Army or any killings as being alleged by many Pakistani Ministers and Twitter troll army of Pakistan.
This raises another pertinent question – if the protests are about Kashmiri independence, what are Pakistani flags doing in the protests? Or was it never about Kashmiri independence but of Pakistani colonization of Kashmir? The slogans from the 1989 ejection of Kashmiri Hindus in a brutal massacre can present a case basis for this –
Asi gachchi Pakistan, Batao roas te Batanev san
We want Pakistan along with Hindu women but without their men
Islam hamara maqsad hai, Quran hamara dastur hai, jehad hamara Rasta hai
Islam is our objective, Q’uran is our constitution, Jehad is our way of our life
Pakistan se kya Rishta? La Ilah-e- Illalah
Islam defines our relationship with Pakistan
Dil mein rakho Allah ka khauf; Hath mein rakho Kalashnikov.
With fear of Allah ruling your hearts, wield a Kalashnikov
Jeeve Jeeve Pakistan
Long live Pakistan
Lashkar ayee Lashkar ayee, india teri mout aye
The fighters are coming, India will see death
These slogans clearly establish that this was always a Pakistan sponsored Islamist Jihad movement and not a freedom fight. The lack of support for Pakistan can be explained through this – there was never a freedom movement in Kashmir, but it’s a Pakistan sponsored terrorist movement.
What Alvi did perfectly fits into the narrative – the removal of Article 370 is seen as a direct threat to Pakistani interests and has got nothing to do with Kashmiri independence. In fact, a prominent twitter handle of one who just back from Kashmir almost confirmed the same –
“CIVILIAN CURFEW : Youth beating people going out. Pelting stones on even civilians. Snatching away keys of vehicles. Mostly in evening, when forces wind up. Access 2 some interiors cut by youth, putting RCC pipes, trees. They come out, pelt stones, run back beyond these blockades”
Who is that Kashmiri who doesn’t want peace in Kashmir? What ulterior motive has he got in keeping Kashmir a boiling cauldron? Whose interests is he serving?
However, it looks like Alvi is not the only one spreading the fake news. The way Pakistan is behaving confirms he is only leading from the front. After all, he has asked his country to use social media as an effective tool to spread Pakistani version over Kashmir in his Presidential Address for Independence Day.
Exposed: Another Fake Video by Ali Haider Zaidi, Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs proved to be Fake
Ali Haider Zaidi, Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs. Member of the National Assembly of Pakistan from NA244 with his twitter handle @AliHZaidiPTI as part of his malicious Propaganda against the neighbor India, tweeted a video
Video was allegedly from Indian Kashmir showing brutality of Indian Security forces and hitting Kashmiris with Batons and a woman’s wailing sound in the background, on 18-August 2019, with the message, “Let the world see what @narendramodi Govt is doing in #Kashmir. The #Hitler from the East rises while the world sleeps. @realDonaldTrump should consider imposing trade sanctions on India to control this monster before it’s too late! #SaveKashmirFromModi #IndianHitlerModi”
This is a fabricated video from Panchkula, Haryana. Video is edited via VIVA Video as evident. We are uploading the video here for our readers to themselves view it and how we expose it.
The First part of the above Fake video by Pakistani Minister is taken from the video on YouTube with Title “Lathi Charge in Panchkula and live gun shoot.” Here is the video for reference for our readers. It is available on YouTube.
It was a video of Police Baton Charge in Panchkula. This Video was published on YouTube on 2 Sep 2017 by Techno Deep. We are attaching a screenshot for our readers to verify the date of publishing of this video.
Detailed news was published in all Indian News websites in September 2017. We checked one such Indian website of News18.com. The article was published with the Title “32 Killed, 350 Injured as Panchkula Burns After Ram Rahim Found Guilty of Rape“
As you can see from the video on the YouTube and then again watch the video shared by a responsible Pakistani Politician Ali Haider Zaidi, Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs. Member of the National Assembly of Pakistan from NA244, you will find that the Video clip is cut from the above YouTube Video of 2017 and was spread worldwide allegedly as about Army brutality in Kashmir.
We were shocked to see that Pakistan Top Political brass is engaged in spreading Fake news and fake videos as part of a malicious propaganda around the world to get crucify, the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and malign the image of Indian Army which is one of the most Professional Armies in the world.
Exposed: Second Part of the Fake Video by the Pakistani Minister as part of Malicious Propaganda against India
Then we checked the second part of the video that shows a woman crying (Carrying a baby)
The second part of the video which shows wailing women has been debunked by Alt News earlier in May when it was viral in Pakistani social media ecosystem with the claim that Hindus are arbitrarily killing Muslims. The background narration said that the incident took place in UP’s Jhansi
But the video is neither from Jhansi nor from Kashmir.
It is a 2018 video from Telangana when a sub-inspector was caught on camera beating his wife and mother-in-law. At 0:56 minutes in the video below, the visuals of the wailing woman that have been incorporated into the viral video can be seen.
The news was covered by the Indian Media house, Times of India on their TOI TV. The video is available on The Times Of India YouTube Channel with the title “Caught on cam: Telangana Sub-Inspector beats wife, baby, mother-in-law”
It was in Telangana (separate state in Southern India), where a sub-Inspector brutally thrashed his wife and kid and his mother-in-law when his extra-marital affair came to light. He disappeared later with his paramour. His attack on his family members was caught on the camera. Sub Inspector Jitendra (Hindu) attacked his wife Praveen (Hindu), 3 month old son and his mother in law. Mother-in-law suffered an injury in her head when Jitendra pushed her to the ground. Sub-Inspector had married the victim an year ago, but for the first 3 months the ASI chose to live away from her. When the wife figured out that he had an extra marital affair, she went to confront him in his new house. The ASI got furious and attacked his family members. ASI and his lover were under run and an FIR was registered. Victims were referred to the local hospital.
We are attaching a screenshot of the said video on the YouTube showing the Date of publishing as 31 Aug 2018.
Exposed: Another Fake Video by a Pakistani Twitter handle
میری پروفائل میرا پاکستان Twitter handle @farrukh56251314 on 7-August 2019 tweeted a video with the message, “Hundreds of thousands Kashmiris took street yesterday in Indian occupied Kashmir to liberate their land from India… One of Kashmiris requested to spread this video all over the world as Indian media did not cover such a huge rally. So, please share as much as possible.” We have attached the screenshot here for our viewers in case the twitter user deletes the tweet.
This video had been posted on YouTube in December 2018 on the channel PMLN Videos. Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) (PMLN) is a political party based in Pakistan, founded by Nawaz Sharif. Video is from a procession staged after 3 militants were gunned down.
An Indian Media house Times of India in their Article titled “FAKE ALERT: Old video shared as Kashmiri women protesting abrogation of Article 370” already exposed that the Video from December last year when 3 terrorists were eliminated by security forces is being shared. The claim made is that Kashmiri women are protesting after abrogation of Article 370. However in reality, Kashmiri locals were attending funeral procession of terrorist that was killed by Indian Security forces. Kashmiris took to street to attend the funeral procession of three Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists killed in an encounter on December 9, 2018.
Not the first time this Malicious Propaganda against India is being run by Pakistanis using Fake Videos
This is not the first time Pakistan is inciting Kashmiri Muslims against Indian Army as part of a Malicious Propaganda. On 6 Dec 2018, A Pakistani Isha Naim, Twitter handle @MrsIshaNaim tweeted, “Kashmiri women She is from Shopian South Kashmir. Beaten during CASO by Indian Occupation Army and SOG. #Goindiago #Kashmir #SaveBabriMasjid #DGISPR”
She had attached 3 pictures of the injured lady.
However, we found that She is a Pastho actress Neelam Gul, portrayed as Kashmiri in the above tweet.
Yet Another Fake Video of Pakistanis Exposed
There was another Fake video shared on 6-October 2018 by another Pakistani Abdul Rauf Siddiquie, he attached a video allegedly showing the Kashmiri houses burnt by Indian Army.
Indian News website The Times of India in their article “FAKE ALERT: 2018 video viral with false claim that Indian Army is burning houses in Kashmir” exposed the above vedio as a Fake video. The video of a massive fire incident in 2018 in Jammu and kashmir’s Lachipora was being shared with a false claim. The false claim is that the Indian Army is burning down houses in Bandipora after the abrogation of Article 37- in erestwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The video is also available on Youtube with title “Four residential houses were gutted in a massive fire incident at Lachipora Uri” Link embedded and was published on 27 March 2018. We are attaching a screenshot from YouTube showing the date of Publication as 27-March 2018 .
From the above findings it is clear beyond reasonable doubt that all the videos they were just cut and pasted together to malign Indian Army. It is very clear that the top politicians of Pakistan are engaged in the dirty propaganda to raise voice of atrocities in Indian Kashmir while hiding the atrocities and Catastrophic Human Rights abuses in Pakistan Occupied Balochistan by Pakistan Army.
Pakistan’s Policy of Delusion, Denial, Deception and Propaganda
Pakistan is following the policy of Delusion, Denial and Deception. Jerry Kroth, a Psychologist and Professor in California, though a series of Videos (available on YouTube) has very well explained this policy on International Fake Media houses works. In his video on “Propaganda and Manipulation: How mass media engineers and distorts our perceptions”
He explained it very well. Some paid journalists and media houses, create delusion about certain events and run a mass propaganda on all news channels and repeatedly show the same deception, use the same or similar words to connote an idea again and again. By repeatedly telling a lie thousands of times, it slowly leads to forming public opinion. He very well explained how the Main Stream Media engineers and distorts our perceptions.
He further in his another video titled “The American empire: denial, delusion & deception” he explains how Mass media creates a delusion about some event and makes a lot of noise about it, in order to hide another event taking place at a different place to divert the attention of the public.
This holds true in case of Pakistan. Pakistan Army is committing catastrophic human rights abuses in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and killing innocent civilians to crush the freedom movement. Because of the media blackout and news censorship in Pakistan, such news are not allowed to come in main stream media. Any journalists who try to report them are killed. We covered it in details in our previous article: Pakistan Army Committing Genocide In Balochistan: Massive Operation Launched
In order to hide its acts of Human Rights Abuses in Balochistan, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Disappearing and killing over a million Baloch, Pashtun, Sindhi, Muhajirs or selling them for Organ Harvesting, Pakistan is making a noise about Situation in Indian Kashmir. Read our previous articles for the detailed expose.
Situation in Indian Union Territoriy of Jammu & Kashmir and Union Territory of Ladakh
We recently published a few articles on the ground situation in Indian part of Kashmir valley. Please read the previous articles to know the ground reality unlike the malicious propaganda being run by International Paid Main stream media.
Post Abrogation Article 370 – Life In Jammu, Kashmir And Ladakh
Kashmir Remained Peaceful On Eid, Life Normal Jammu Ladakh Regions
The situation in Indian Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Union Terriotory of Ladakh is very peaceful. Infact people in Jammu an Ladakh regions that form 84% of the entire erestwhile state is still in the celebration mood because of their new found freedom.
Even in Kashmir the overall situation is peaceful except a couple of minor incidents which are expected when such a big decision is made. As pointed in out previous article, Kashmir valley which is being highlighted by the Pakistani as well as the International media, comprises only 15,948 Sq Km in area, which is 15.73% of the entire state of erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir. This 15.73% area cannot be termed as representing the entire state. However still, all the activities are normal in Kashmir as well. The Mobile Internet is blocked because, Pakistanis flood Indian Kashmiris with inciting messages that can cause communal riots and disturb the peace of the city.
Kashmir valley is area where Internet is blocked is about 15,948 Square Kilometres in area which is about 15.73% of the total area of union territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Union Territory of Ladakh. Internet is blocked only in 15.73% of the area. Compare this with Balochistan with an area of 347,190 square kilometres (134,050 sq mi), an area more than twenty times that of Kashmir Valley with no Internet services and no media allowed to report. None of the International Media is allowed to go inside this vast area of Balochistan.
As per the recent reports coming, Pakistan is pushing hundreds of Terrorists to Indian Kashmir across the porous border. Many Terrorists are being killed on daily basis in gunfight with Indian Security forces. The scale at which Pakistan is pushing its terrorists is massive.
As per a source, he said, “If the Pakistan continues to push the terrorists and if any major Terrorist incident happens in India, Indian security forces will unleash punitive actions on Pakistan and force it to dismantle its Terrorist producing factories. As of now, India has left this task to International organizations to push Pakistan to step terror financing and stop sending Terrorists. As a result of which Pakistan is put in enhanced terror financing list by FATF group. The day a major Terrorist incident happens in India, Indian patience will run out and we will not care about any International organization.”
How is Government Dealing with the Situation in Kashmir Valley (15.73% area)
As the government begins easing restrictions in #Jammu and #Kashmir in a phased manner, four specific groups will be on the radar of the security agencies to prevent any kind of outbreak of violence in the Valley.
The first group has been dubbed as “movers and shakers”, which consists of either members from the #Hurriyat Conference or key political leaders. To deal with this group, the govt had put several leaders under house arrest and detention soon after imposing curfew in the Valley.
Another group is members of banned outfits and terrorist organizations. The government is planning to give a “free hand” to the Army to maintain peace along the border and restrict movement of terrorists.
The third section under watch is stone-throwers, most of whom are teenagers. A strategy of “community bonds” has been adopted where 20 family members and acquaintances have to sign a bond, ensuring that the teenagers will not indulge in these activities again.
The government is also planning to put restrictions on religious leaders, the fourth group. The authorities will deal harshly with religious leaders and arrest them immediately, if required, in case they try to instigate people for violent protests.
Pakistan Social Media (Twitter) Troll Army
Pakistan ISPR is regularly conducting courses to train their people in usage of social media, trend hashtags, run a Malicious Propaganda against their sworn enemy India.
Recently a noted Journalist Anis Farooqui in a Talk show with another noted Journalist Tahir Gora talked about the Pakistani Troll Army on Twitter. Here is the video clip from their talk show.
There is growing condemnation of Pakistan for using hired trolls on twitter who are spreading hatred around the globe and maligning all other religions. As President of Pakistan Arif Alvi himself leads Troll Army Pakistan, International community should be ready for accepting new lows from Pakistan.
As Pakistan is a Failed state that failed in economic as well as international front, there is growing discontent among the Pakistan public. People have started questioning the great Myth created about the “Invincible Army of Pakistan”. In one of the tweets, a Pakistani citizen offered bangles to the DG ISPR Asif Gafoor.
As per a twitter user, “New form of JEHAD started by Pakistan Army. Called Twitter Jehad or Trolling Jehad. They are running professional courses to train their Trolls army to abuse anyone who speaks against Pakistan. They are being trained to make Fake videos, run trending their hashtags”
