Islamabad: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry said that two years of data has revealed that all anti-Pakistan trends on social media were started by Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM), which was getting support from India.
Tonight, he and National Security Advisor Dr. Moeed Yusuf will speak at a joint press conference in Islamabad.
The Minister said that the Digital Media Department of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting analyzed the data retrieved from social media within two years and determined the facts of anti-Pakistan trends on social media in India and Afghanistan.
He said that the Pashtoon Tahaffuz movement, its affiliates and elements from Afghanistan have contributed to a large-scale social media trend targeting Pakistan.
The minister said that PTM ran 150 trends and posted 3.7 million tweets, most of which came from India.
He said that PTM also actively used Baluchistan separatists for this purpose.
Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said that the trend also comes from Israel. Unfortunately, some political parties in Pakistan have also participated in dirty propaganda against Pakistan.
In his speech, Dr. Moeed Yusuf said that the facts provided by our think tank show that India and Afghanistan are launching campaigns against Pakistan on social media. He said these social media trends are running in a coordinated manner.
The NSA said we have decided to unveil all such conspiracies against the country. He said these trends are being run on the themes based on sub-nationalism, targeting China Pakistan Economic Corridor directly, putting Pakistan in black list of FATF and holding Pakistan responsible for chaos in Afghanistan.
Moeed Yusuf said these trends are generated and supported with the help of Artificial Intelligence which even don t show the real time of its dissemination on social media.
Dr Moeed Yusuf said he himself has visited United States recently and there is no imposition of sanctions on Pakistan.
He said that Pakistan hopes that the Afghan issue will be resolved peacefully and politically.
In response to a question, the National Security Agency stated that Pakistan believes in peace in its neighbourhoods and the only way to resolve the conflict in Afghanistan is through negotiation.
