Asif Ghafoor, the Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations has shared a video of former Indian General Rtd. Syed Ata Hasnain appreciating the imperative role of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the media wing of Pakistan Armed forces in defeating Indian Army in the game of modern Hybrid warfare.

The Indian Ex-General was seen talking at the platform of International Institute of Strategic Studies in London praising the smart strategy employed by the ISPR to combat the Indian Armed Forces and their propaganda on social media that is the crucial aspect of the Hybrid warfare.

He acknowledged that where India has failed to comprehend the demands of information warfare, ISPR’s proactive role has secured Pakistan and its armed forces upper hand over India in modern warfare in recent years.

He said: “I give full marks to Pakistan for the manner in which it has played out the information strategy. The ISPR did outstanding work for Pakistan.” He said that “ISPR has successfully ensured the detail alienation of Kashmiri public against the Indian Armed forces first and then the Indian nation.”

“The MCA [Military Civic Action] is not soft power. It’s not psychological. In 30 years, Indian has made many mistakes as far as its strategy is concerned but one of the major mistakes is to think that the MCA is a psychological operation, it’s information operation. It’s not,” he said.

“If anyone has taught us how to play information operation it’s the ISPR of Pakistan who has done it marvellously, I would like to give it back to them, always. Credit to them.”

Speaking about occupied Kashmir, he said, “From 2012 onwards Pakistan got upper hand and the change of the generation and social media made all the difference. We didn’t know how to carry the information side of things but Pakistan has done it extremely well.”
