As the Taliban settle down into their new role as the government of Afghanistan, Indian media recently went on a misinformation spree. By peddling fake news, Indian media spread lies against Pakistan’s military.
Out of the vast misinformation campaign, the most ridiculous one was Indian media shared a video that allegedly showed Pakistan Air Force attacking Panjshir. However, the Indian media’s smear campaign did not work as saner elements of society slammed the media outlets and proved that they took the video from a game.
To further add salt to injury, Pakistan, on Sunday, announced a dossier exposing the Indian Army’s human rights violation in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK).
While addressing a press conference, National Security Adviser Moeed Yusuf said Pakistan would share the dossier with the international community. To ensure impartiality, the 131-page dossier contains reports of 32 human rights watchdogs and 14 reports by Pakistan.
The dossier covers detailed accounts of brutalities carried out by the Indian Army in IIOJK. Since 1989, reports recorded over 96,000 extra-judicial killings, around 162,000 cases of arbitrary arrests and torture, over 25,000 pellet gun injuries. Moreover, the Indian Army raped 11,250 women, left around 23,000 widowed, and made over 108,000 children orphans.

Another important factor that the dossier highlighted was the Indian Army’s use of chemical weapons against Kashmiris.
The dossier also shared the GPS coordinates of five ISIS training camps. It said one such camp was located in Gulmarg, three in Rajasthan, and one in Uttarakhand. Interestingly, authorities level frequent accusations against India of supporting terrorist groups both in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
What prompted Pakistan to release the dossier?
The timing of the dossier is interesting to note. Earlier, Kashmiri leader Syed Ali Geelani’s death became a highlight of Indian atrocities in IIOJK. After the death of Syed Ali Geelani, Indian forces pressurized his family to bury him within 30 minutes.
They also threatened that they would bury him in an unmarked grave if the family does not cooperate. Indian forces also denied a public funeral. Moreover, they imposed a complete lockdown in IIOJK.
Ever since the dossier, the #IndianArmyWarCrimes is trending on Twitter as netizens demand the international community to hold India accountable.
Therefore, Pakistan is once again reminding the international community of what the Indian Army does in IIOJK.
