British Pakistani community launched “soldiers of Pakistan” against Indian fake propaganda campaign
LONDON: A British Pakistani community leader and businessman has launched the “Soldiers of Pakistan” organisation to defend national interests of Pakistan in UK and Europe after the EU DisinfoLab uncovered a network of over 750 fake news outlets and dozens of NGOs focused at defaming Islamabad.
Abu Tarab Raja announced at a press conference that revelations by EU DisinfoLab showed that Pakistan was almost unarmed in the West and needed to counter the negative propaganda pushed against its national interests by the Indian government.
“The Soldiers of Pakistan association strongly condemns the fake propaganda and lobbying attempts made by India to discredit Pakistan in the international realm. EU DisinfoLab has uncovered a network of over 750 fake news outlets which facilitated the activities of over 10 NGOs which were embroiled in hostile acts against Pakistan at a massive scale," he said.
Raja, who will be the chairman of Soldiers of Pakistan, revealed that he had instructed a firm to audit activities of Indian elements based on the revelations made by EU DisinfoLab and was shocked to find out the likely amount that was invested by Indian government every month to run its operations against Pakistan.
"Our own investigation shows that India was spending at least £2 million a month to run this operation and this expenditure tripled during activity months in Brussels, Geneva, London, Washington and New York. Although the report doesn’t name the sponsor of the activity out of expediency but the whole world knows that these nefarious activities were funded by Indian government," he said.
The businessman said that the campaign has been one of the most well-oiled fake news missions run by any country.
Now its for the United Nations, the European Union and the Western governments to take action against India for using their soil to run malicious operations against Pakistan, he urged.
Raja told the media that the sole purpose for the “Soldiers of Pakistan” association was to protect the reputation and integrity of the country — as well as Pakistan Armed Forces.
