Propaganda machinery: ISPR slams Indian media


News Desk |

Pakistani Military dismissed the Indian media’s propaganda saying that Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa met all the guests at Kartarpur ceremony. The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) slammed Indian media for its negative approach toward the event of groundbreaking ceremony of Kartarpur corridor.

In a Tweet, Major General Asif Ghafoor, (DG ISPR) said, “Indian media taking a myopic view is selectively showing Mr. Gopal Chawla meeting COAS. Army Chief met all guests at the venue irrespective of identity. A peace initiative should not be subjected to propaganda.”

In another post, the ISPR quoted COAS, saying, “It’s a step towards peace which our region needs. Barbed wire at borders is measure by a sovereign state to check/deny illegal crossings. Corridors & Gates are for legal peaceful visitors. So is the case for all our neighbors.”

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday, 28th November, performed the groundbreaking of the long-awaited corridor connecting Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur area of Narowal district to Dera Baba Nanak in India’s Gurdaspur district today.

The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) slammed Indian media for its negative approach toward the event of groundbreaking ceremony of Kartarpur corridor.

The event was attended by PM Khan, COAS Bajwa, amongst other senior leadership representing the Pakistani side and on the Indian contingent were Najvot Singh Siddhu, Punjab Minister for Tourism, Indian Minister for Food Harsimrat Kaur Badal and Minister for Housing Hardeep S. Puri.

India, following its long-set tradition, instead of applauding the positive gesture, launched a propaganda campaign against Pakistan. First, Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj announced that India would not attend the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) conference if it is held in Pakistan, brushing off any possibility of improvement in relations between India and Pakistan, despite the opening of the Kartarpur crossing.

And then Indian media ignoring the whole ceremony, picked up a non-issue to spread hatred among its nation which was actually appreciating the initiative of Pakistan.
