KARACHI: A European non-governmental group has unveiled 265 ‘fake’ news networks run by an Indian network to influence the European Union and the UN with critical content about Pakistan.

‘EU DisinfoLab’ focuses on researching and tackling innovative disinformation campaigns targeting the European Union, its member states, core institutions and core values.

During the investigation, disinfection found that fake websites had copied anti-Pakistan content from extraordinary press agencies and decorative content shared by politicians and obscure think tanks that favored India’s geopolitical interests.

One such website eptoday.com – claiming to be a self-made magazine for the European Parliament in Brussels – was copying a large amount of news for the word news.

Des Infoblow’s research shows that most of today’s content was produced by the US-owned Voice of America store. It was linked to Indian interests and was a criticism of Pakistan. The website has published a number of articles on minority articles and opinion pieces in Pakistan.

The investigation revealed that the news was managed by Indian stakeholders, which had links to think tanks, NGOs and a large network of companies of the Srivastava Group.

The European Union’s disinfection found that the address of the AP office today was similar to that of the Srivastava group, based in New Delhi. The IP address of the Srivastava Group also included obscure online media “New Delhi Times” and the International Institute for Non-Aligned Studies (IINS).

Recently, the obscure IINS invited 27 members of the European Parliament to meet Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In Geneva, where the head of the UN refugee agency is located, the group searched Time of Feniwa.com – an online “newspaper” that has been “close to 35 years in business.” The Times of Geneva posted content similar to the EP Today and produced videos containing events and demonstrations that criticized Pakistan’s role in the Kashmir dispute.

Through the website, this network caters to the interests of Indian lobbying in the UN in Geneva.

An analysis of the fake websites revealed that most of them were named after local newspapers or real media outlets. He reposted the anti-Pakistan content on the remaining influential networks. These include fake outlets such as AP Today, 4 News Agency, Times of Geneva, New Delhi Times. Most websites also had a Twitter account.

Disinfection found evidence that both AP Today and the Times of Geneva have strong ties to NGOs and think tanks, such as the European Organization for Minorities, and the Human Rights Organization of Pakistani Women.

Why create fake shops?

According to disinfection analysis, these fake news outlets were intended to impress international organizations and elected representatives with coverage of specific events and demonstrations. He also provided useful press materials to NGOs to strengthen their credibility and thus remain useful.

The network added several layers of media that were delivered and published to each other, making it difficult for the reader to detect manipulation, and as a result (sometimes) to the Indian geographical political interests. It also offers the illusion of international support.

The purpose of this critical content was to influence public opinion about Pakistan by placing a heavy load on search engines.
