Pakistan Readies Global Propaganda Blitzkrieg On Kashmir

 Pakistan Readies Global Propaganda Blitzkrieg On Kashmir

StratNews Global learns that the Pakistani establishment is on the verge of unleashing a global campaign to malign the Indian government (not for the first time) on October 27, the day Indian Army troops landed in Srinagar in 1947 to protect Kashmir from rampaging Pakistan-backed armed tribesmen. Islamabad describes the Indian Army deployment as a black day, something it has been trying to market to the rest of the world with little success.

The blitzkrieg against India, designed by the Pakistani deep state, will involve audio, text and visual material that seeks to denigrate various aspects of life and administration on the Indian side of the Line of Control in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.  The contents of the papers (seen by SNG), is planned to be distributed by Pakistani diplomatic missions all over the world to various governments and think tanks.

This activity is likely to be initiated any day with the goal of drawing the attention of international organisations, states and their agencies. The papers have been sub-divided under various heads like:

  • Human Rights Report on Kashmir June – August 2022
  • India Silencing Journalism and Human Rights in Kashmir
  • Journalism under threat in Jammu & Kashmir
  • Kashmir Insight July-August 2022

The contents bear the clear footprint of the ISI/Pakistan Army. The narrative is mainly based on statements of a minuscule number of largely discredited pro-Pakistani individuals and organisations in J&K. The articles and other papers have a clear bias with the core intent to attack the Indian Parliament’s decision to revoke Article 370 of the Constitution, that gave temporary special status to the erstwhile state of Jammu & Kashmir.

The contents reflect pre-conceived ideas, lack intellectual value for researchers or scholars, and certainly not for common people.

They do not draw any comparisons between the Indian Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir and life in Pakistani-occupied J&K. If such a comparison was undertaken in the Pakistani papers, perhaps a more factual account would have emerged. It is widely accepted that J&K is ahead by leaps and bounds as compared to Pakistan Occupied J&K. The poverty in the Pakistani-controlled area, the lack of civil infrastructure, a tottering economy, lack of education, health and other basic needs would shame any democratic nation.

The free movement of terrorists, its effect on law and order, and the denial of freedom to the local people are day-to-day experiences.

The Pakistani establishment, it needs to be understood, has been emboldened considerably since the US decided to provide a $450 million “sustenance package” for its fleet of F-16 fighter aircraft. Now, with the FATF having removed Pakistan from its watch list, the leadership in Islamabad and Rawalpindi, probably feel their reputation as a responsible state has been re-established. This despite the fact that the Pakistani deep state’s links with terror groups operating across its western and eastern borders remains intact. Such support is across the board: moral, material, political, financial and extends to military operations by its own army in supporting terrorist groups.

The intention, it would appear, is to strengthen its strategy in Jammu and Kashmir by seeking to influence and thereby involve the global community more closely. Pakistan hopes its avalanche of lies will swamp rational thinking across the globe. These papers are expected to be released in a day or two.  However, no responsible country or institution can accept such biased reports bereft of evidence or any truth. Pakistan lost the plot in Kashmir a long time ago. The world has long since realized its role in fomenting terrorism in India and other parts of the world.  The terror weapon has failed Pakistan. The latest propaganda offensive will not help either.
