International Media: A Big Source to Spread Misconceptions

Pakistan is a country that always stands with Oppressed people. On several occasions, Pakistan has raised its voice for the rights of Kashmiris, Palestine, and the people of Sham. The sympathy of Pakistan with these Muslim countries is unbearable for the non-Muslims living in the neighborhood of Pakistan.

Imran Khan’s speech at united nation 2019 covered a big-time while speaking on the Cruelty happening on the Kashmiris by India. This speech depicts the sorrow and injustice that the Kashmir population is facing.

Moreover, the whole world is familiar with the situation facing our Palestinian brothers. The atrocities against the Palestinians in Israel have no limit. Pakistan always condemns the cruelty and on 21 May 2021, Palestine solidarity day was observed in Pakistan.

It is the responsibility of the media to bring the true news of the atrocities against Muslims in Kashmir and Palestine to the people and expose the oppressors. Pakistan has always raised its voice against oppression and Pakistan’s efforts to give rights to the oppressed are appreciated. The media must convey the role of Pakistan to the world in the appropriate way.

States that share Boundaries with Pakistan

Let’s talk a little about history!

As all of us know Indians and Pakistanis were live together in the subcontinent. They were called one nation. But when Muslims realized the injustice behavior of Hindus, they rose the slogan of being a different nation and demanded a separate state where they could live their own. In August 1947, partition was done and Pakistan came on the map of the world.

In fact the international border of Pakistan and India has a length of 3,323 kilometers. Now Four states of India share their boundaries with Pakistan.

  • Jammu and Kashmir
  • Rajasthan
  • Gujarat and
  •  Punjab.

Pakistan is the world’s 5th largest population country. Hindus make up the fourth-largest minority in Pakistan after India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Other than these minorities, there are also several hidden Hindus living in Pakistan that spread violence. They enter Pakistan in disguise from different borders and some of them have arrested and among them, Kulbhushan Jadhav is the most dangerous one.

Indian Captain Abhinandan Crossed Pakistan Territory

On the early morning of 26th February 2019, Indian warplanes crossed the de facto border and dropped bombs in the vicinity of the town of Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan.

Pakistan’s military announced the airstrike done by the Indian planes as dropping their payload in an uninhabited wooded hilltop area near Balakot. Later that same day, India confirmed the strike, describing it as a preemptive strike against a terrorist training camp.

The airstrike was the first time since the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 that attacking warplanes had crossed the Line of Control. As a result of the attack, a large number of deaths occurred.

On 27th February 2019, Abhinandan Varthaman who was a Wing Commander in Indian Air Force, flying MiG 21, and his plane crossed the Pakistani side. Pakistan shot down the jet and captured the pilot.

Final Verdict / Bottom Line

Pakistan is a safe country to visit. although there are several hidden Kulbhushan Jadhav working in it to spread terrorism in Pakistan and to destroy the image of this beautiful country. The intelligence agency and military of Pakistan work hard to control suspicious activities and apply strict vigilance to the sensitive areas.

Pakistan is a Muslim country that is achieved in the name of Islam. Islam itself means peace. Despite countless Indian abuse, Pakistan still promotes peace and reconciliation with India. The inauguration of the Kartarpur Corridor by Imran khan proves a soft spot for the Sikh community living in India. Hopefully, the relationship between India and Pakistan will go better in the future.
