According to social media reports, an intensely negative campaign is being run against Pakistan on Turkish social media.

A Pakistani Twitter user claims that a negative campaign is being run against Pakistan further fueled by fake accounts pretending to be from Pakistan but allegedly being operated from India. The Twitter user claims that these fake accounts are sending hyper-sensational messages on Turkish media. They are abusing Turkish leaders and calling for the ‘Caliphate’ system in Turkey.

The Turkish opposition leader Umit Ozdag, a strong critic of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is also gaining traction after passing anti-Pakistan comments on Twitter. The controversy started after a few Pakistani men living in Turkey posted videos of stalking Turkish women on the streets of Turkey.

No Pakistanis to counter the negative campaign?

The Twitter user said that Pakistan also came under attack during the anti-immigrant campaign. According to him, there has been resentment against Arabs, Afghans, and Iranis immigrants in Turkey. Only Pakistan had a goodwill image that is also coming under attack.
