Agence France-Presse, a French-based international news agency headquartered in Paris, has exposed baseless propaganda launched by Indian media against Pakistan at the behest of Modi government.

The AFP in its fresh report titled “Video of woman assaulted in Pakistan shared with false claim about violence against Hindus” said that a video being circulated in Hindi-language social media posts that claim it shows a brutal assault against a Hindu woman in Pakistan. ‘This is false’, the AFP report said and added that the footage being circulated since January 2022 is about a land dispute in Pakistan.

As per AFP, the video was tweeted by the verified account of Indian media outlet Zee Hindustan on August 27, 2022 with misleading subtitles that ‘atrocities against Hindus are not stopping in Pakistan.’ The French news agency proved with facts that the dispute was between two Muslim families based in Sialkot, and had nothing to do with any Hindu woman.

“The victim’s relative told AFP that the dispute was between two Muslim families.”

“The video was tweeted here by the verified account of Indian media outlet Zee Hindustan on August 27, 2022.”

“Atrocities against Hindus are not stopping in Pakistan. A Hindu woman was beaten up with sticks over a minor issue. There’s no justice for Hindu victims,” reads the Hindi-language tweet.—INP
