Is there more to the recent “Boycott India campaign” in the Arab world than what meets the eye? The India hatred by Pak propaganda agencies is at work again. Read on.
It often happens that one focuses more on what he sees rather than what is going on around him but the real stories lie in the things happening around us.
The same thing is happening with the “Boycott India Campaign,” which is being carried out in a vicious manner
On the surface, the #BoycottIndianProducts appears to be a reaction from Arab world to the ongoing disputes in India. When we took a closer look, we saw that this is a much wider game, and the participants are almost identical to those behind the #BoycottFrenchProducts.
And also, this was not the first time when these players have tried to run a campaign against India, in fact they have been running the #BoycottIndia campaign for long time.
One thing has become evident here: the roots of the campaign to propagate anti-India hatred was already seeded a long time ago. They had been nurturing it from time to time, but they were looking for an opportunity, which was presented to them on a silver platter last week.
Pak’s propaganda group, Pak Strategic Forum, which is notorious for spreading propaganda on social media took full advantage of the situation.
PSF not only seeds the anti-India propaganda in Urdu & English, it also has an Arabic division to foment anti-India narratives.
When India’s commercial pavilion was ready to open in Dubai Expo 2020, the #PakistanStrategicForum aided the #MuslimBrotherhood Network in running and implementing the Boycott India campaign against India, and target Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
This time again, the same campaign was led by the same people & media outlets inclined with Muslim Brotherhood.
This proved that these individuals have been lobbying against India for a long time, but the topic was sentimental this time, therefore they were successful.
PSF was registered by Aanis Kamal, a student of Fazaia Inter College. The college is a part of Pakistan Air Force schools & colleges system as per its website. Aanis has also worked at PTV.
Father of Aanis Kamal, Kamal Pasha has been teaching in Fazaia Inter College, Lahore run by Pakistani Air Force.
The next name in the PSF is of Umair Aslam. Interestingly, his father was also in Pakistan Airforce.
Huzaifa Farid, the head of #PakistanStrategicForum’s Arabic branch (@Arabic_PSF), is next on the list. He is from Islamabad and also manages a propaganda account called @WhiteNewsArabia.
It is now clear that Pakistani is utilizing its citizens in Arab countries to run anti-India narratives, with the help of Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated influencers & news outlets. Apart from that, they have been disseminating a slew of other false information about India.
It has also become clear that their agenda has nothing to do with the current happenings in India, and they create an anti-India atmosphere every two months. Their preparation shows that this for long term, and hence its solution will also have to be for long term.
