Indian government and agencies caught cheating the nation and world
ISLAMABAD -Indian government and agencies caught cheating the nation and world as massive old pictures are being spread across India to show normalcy in the Occupied Kashmir.
In August 2019, the Union government abrogated key provisions of Article 370, altering the status of Jammu & Kashmir. Since then, social media has witnessed relentless attempts to justify or criticize the move, often through misinformation.
A set of photographs has been shared on social media to portray normalcy in Kashmir, nearly two months after the dramatic step of August 5.

The above post is by Ashish Kohli (*@dograjournalist*) who is followed on Twitter by the Office of Nirmala Sitharaman. Kohli describes himself as a journalist who *“Reports Border Conflicts and Terrorism from J&K”,* and his Twitter bio reads, *“A Proud Jammu Citizen blocked by my former CM Mehbooba Mufti”*.
He has tweeted three photographs which, he claims, have been clicked today (October 3). He calls these photographs a response to *“fake tweets” *and *“Anti India propaganda”. *
A comment link by a user on Kohli’s tweet suggested that the photographs are old. Based on this information, Alt News found that the photographs tweeted as recent, were indeed clicked earlier. Let us take a look at each of these pictures.
Alt News reverse-searched the above photograph and came across a tweet link from March 2019 by a journalist, Sameer Yasir. The same photo was tweeted on March 22, 2019, more than four months before the Central government’s move on Article 370.
