He said according to the EU Group’s latest report, there is a vast network of fake media outlets, think tanks and NGOs serving Indian interests and involved in amplifying malicious content against Pakistan.
He said India is not only spreading disinformation but also abusing international institutions in its desire to malign Pakistan.
The spokesperson said such Indian ploys of spreading misinformation are doomed to fail.
He said by spreading falsehoods, India can neither cast a shadow on the international stature of Pakistan nor can divert the attention of the international community from its horrendous human rights record.
Zahid Hafeez said instead of wasting more time in peddling falsehoods and fake news, India is advised to put its own house in order.
He suggested India should take care of its own issues of poverty, grave human rights violations, exploitation of minority rights and rising radicalism.
World should take notice
The spokesperson said the world should take notice of the Indian disinformation campaign and Pakistan will raise this issue at every level.
Zahid Hafeez said Pakistan has already put forth irrefutable evidence extensively documenting India’s active planning, promoting, abetting, financing and executing terrorist activities in Pakistan.
He said publication of the recent report by the EU group only substantiates Pakistan’s position in front of the international community.
He also answered a question about recent threats from New Delhi.
Response to threats from New Delhi
The spokesperson said Pakistan has consistently been apprising the world about the possibility of India resorting to false flag operation against Pakistan.
Moreover, he said we forewarn the world community yet again.
He lauded our armed forces of Pakistan as fully vigilant and ready to respond to any misadventure or miscalculation by India.
With regards to recent developments in the Gulf region, the spokesperson said Pakistan welcomes the progress towards resolution of the rift in the Gulf region.
Meanwhile, the FO spokesman appreciated Kuwait’s sincere efforts for helping in promoting reconciliation among the countries in the dispute.
He hoped that enhanced confidence and understanding amongst these countries will foster durable peace and prosperity in the region.
