The Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir has been briefed on a strategy evolved by its Advisory Board on Digital Media to adopt counter measures to the Indian information terrorism being projected through fake news on Kashmir and Pakistan.
Chairing the meeting of the Kashmir Committee, Shehryar Khan Afridi said India was involved in information terrorism while Pakistan and Kashmiris were victim of Indian fake news.
He said that EU Disinfo Lab had fully exposed the Indian networks of fake news and Pakistan needed to counter Indian fake news on the digital and mainstream media spheres.
“We are creating an online data repository to provide factual information on Kashmir.
This would help the world know what’s actually happening on ground in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and how Indian fake websites and mainstream media was manipulating and twisting information to create fake news. We need to counter the Indian fake news and tell truth to the world,” he said.
Shehryar Khan Afridi said that the content on Kashmir would be translated in eight major languages and NUML management has volunteered itself for free-of-cost translation of the content on Kashmir.
