Pakistani Twitter has gone into a frenzy with the hashtag “Another False Flag by India”, after farmers at Singhu border present a person who alleges a plot to shoot four farmers leaders and cause disruption; says there were plans to cause disruption during the farmer’s tractor march that was to be held on 26th Jan 2021.
The suspect claimed that once the Delhi Police intercepts the riots, an unnamed attacker will shoot one of the farmer leaders during the protests. He claims if they do not stop during the shooting, they are ordered to shoot at the knees of protestors.
The intentions of the attackers would be to incite violence and change the narrative of the story to Farmer’s using weaponry to cause havoc. Reports suggest the Indian intelligence and agencies are involved in the planning of this false flag operation.

Pakistan on Sunday stated it has taken up an alleged strike by Indian border troops on a carrier of the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) with the international body, pushing it to launch a “transparent investigation” into the event.
In a letter directed to the UN secretary-general and the president of the Security Council, Munir Akram, Pakistan’s permanent representative to the UN, said: “deliberate targeting of the UN Observers and their vehicle – which was clearly marked with UN logo and flying a blue flag of the UN – appears to be a new coercive and reckless ploy by India to hinder UNMOGIP’s work, and facilitate another Indian military misadventure against Pakistan.”
The UN, according to the state-run Associated Press of Pakistan, has confirmed that a UNMOGIP vehicle was damaged after it was hit by an “unidentified object” on the Pakistani side of the Line of Control, a de facto border that divides the disputed Jammu and Kashmir region between the two nuclear rivals.
The letter, according to a Foreign Ministry statement, added that Pakistan has “credible information that the RSS-BJP government was planning to stage a ‘false flag’ attack to divert attention from its domestic difficulties, and create a justification for another misadventure against Pakistan.”
“The UN must respond positively and urgently to repeated calls by Pakistan to strengthen UNMOGIP, and improve its ability to observe and report on ceasefire violations,” it said.
Islamabad claims New Delhi has committed over 3,000 “unprovoked” cease-fire violations along the border this year alone, killing at least 27 civilians.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan said the attack on the UN vehicle “shows India’s total disregard for all international norms of acceptable state behaviour & respect for international law & UN.”
“I want to again warn the world community, as India’s internal problems mount, especially economic recession, growing farmers protests & mishandling of COVID-19, the Modi govt will divert from the internal mess by conducting a false flag operation against Pakistan,” he tweeted.
“If India was to be reckless enough to conduct a false flag operation against Pakistan, it would confront a strong national Pakistani resolve & be given a befitting response at all levels of the threat. Make no mistake.”
