Be it is an incident of plane hijacking, attacks of Indian parliament, Mumbai or Pulwama or Uri, India always used falsehood as statecraft to malign Pakistan, make political gains and above all divert focus from economic meltdown, insurgencies, and religious bigotry.
The Indian establishment articulately constructs and cultivates anti-Pakistan narratives to distract the attention of international and local media from seri-ous domestic challenges also including widespread demonstrations and tensions between ethnic groups.
From the disintegration of Pakistan to its enlisting on FATF grey list, the Indian political and intelli-gence leadership always claimed to have played their role which was obviously based on falsified propaganda and disinformation campaigns.
The drama of the Indian Parliament attack in 2001 was not the first time that the Indians had used a false flag operation to execute its hidden agenda against Pakistan.
The Indian blatant propaganda was badly exposed when The Wire news agency disclosed WhatsApp chats between Indian anchorperson Arnab Goswami, and the former CEO of the rating agency Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC), Partho Dasgupta.
The chats exposed the sinister designs hatched by Modi’s government to blame Pakistan for the false Pulwama attack, followed by a botched air strike on Balakot in February 2019.
India had always tried to bluff the international stakeholders and community to project Pakistan as a state sponsoring terrorism.
Exposing the nexus between the extremist outfits BJP and RSS, the ex-Indian Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde revealed in 2013 that they were be-hind the Samjhauta Express, Mecca Masjid and Malegaon blasts.
The boat drama orchestrated by the Indian intelli-gence agencies prior to the US President Barack Obama’s second visit to India, was also falsified when their own top officials admitted that there was no such boat which came from Pakistan.
India uses false flag operations to generate a nega-tive perception to initiate international actions against Pakistan as well as a tool of coercion which is often utilized to provoke or justify a war against adversaries.
In an interview, Major General (retd) Z.A.Khan, former Director, DGFI (Bangladeshi Intelligence) said “There is no doubt that RAW played a vital role during our liberation war, but their motive was to divide Pakistan at any cost to weaken their arch-rival Pakistan.
