There is a sharp increase in vicious information the Pakistani military campaign against India. The analysis will identify three triggers: Balakot the attack of February 2019, the return BJP the government in elections in may 2019 and revision August 2019 Article 370.
Balakot demolished the age-old assumption that Pakistan nuclear equivalence guarantees that India will not take retaliatory action against the terrorist attacks. The return of the government the BJP said that India will continue to monitor muscular policy in the next five years. The article 370 is the solution to demolished in the center of the nationalism of Pakistan “Kashmir Banega Pakistan” and raised concerns about the plans of India to Pakistan, Jammu and Kashmir (POJK).
These events led him to shift the focus of its anti-India strategy from inciting terrorism supported by the component of the information war the information war supports terrorism.
Pakistan has two main instruments work in tandem to achieve this policy, ISI and inter-services public relations (ISPR). The ISPR is one-stop-shop for information war against India. He was for many years, gaining thousands of young people have been trained in the mechanics of social networking and use it to draft Anti-India threads.
Pakistani main goal is to demolish the “brand India”, attacking its key components — inclusive and secular society, a democratic country, a decisive government, developing economic centre and strong foreign policy. This was done by trying to polarize the society and undermine social cohesion. It is expected that this strategy will have a cascading effect that negatively impacted India’s secular and Democratic reputation, to scare foreign investment and lead to questions about its international image.
A key platform of this strategy, Twitter, WhatsApp, YouTube and Facebook. A large number of fake accounts in social networks, especially Twitter, was created. Although Twitter is not the most popular platform, in terms of quantity, in India or Pakistan, this is perhaps the most efficient form of instant messaging. Pakistan has developed a malicious fake stories embellished with audio and video clips. Use grips with a strange middle Eastern identity is the latest addition to its tricks.
Internal events and dissent in India would be to manipulate the workpieces and used for the development of a social narrative of India damaged tissue. Key topics include India Muslim law, and “fascist Indian government” Hindutva supremacy ideology.
In J&K key topics: Kashmir is a “disputed territory” waiting to be addressed in the framework of the resolutions of the United Nations; India should talk to Pakistan to solve this problem, and since India refuses to talk, need international intervention; Kashmiris want “azaadi”, the Kashmiris are waging Jihad against India; the Indian army is violating human rights of Kashmiris. Recently, they are advocating that India is preparing a false flag operation and the genocide of Muslims in Kashmir.
It is noteworthy that the same anti-India narrative repeated ad nauseam from all medium to platform — whether it’s politics as Imran Khan or Shah Mehmood Qureshi, ISPR, or print, electronic media and social networks.
One of the indicators of the strategy of Pakistan available in the Green book Pakistan army till 2020. The article Lieutenant General Raza Muhammad Khan (Retd.) reads: “With the spread of Internet, nowadays, nothing can escape exaggeration, distortion, and falsification to manipulate the perception on major issues relating to peace and security.”Another article of one state by Farzana Shah: “a single video or picture can change the perception of India, which it has built so painstakingly over many years.”
For India, there must be a continual vigil and fight against the campaign was against terrorism in the interests of Pakistan. Though the Indian Polity is a strong, persistent toxic such attacks can temporarily damage our social structure. We must not allow ourselves, wittingly or unwittingly become a victim of such fraud, to polarize society, even temporarily.
