Pakistan has found itself grappling with two significant terrorist attacks in the span of two days that both cost the lives of brave soldiers and unveiled an unsettling cyber propaganda campaign, reported the 24NewsHD TV channel.
According to sources, the first attack unfolded in Pasni, Gwadar on November 3, where 14 soldiers laid down their lives in the face of relentless terror. Simultaneously, a sinister attempt to target the Mianwali Air Base on November 4 was foiled by the vigilant security forces, preventing further loss of life and securing national assets.
As these attacks were carried out by anti-national elements on the ground, a disturbing parallel battle was waged in the virtual realm. Agents, touts, and trolls, believed to be associated with these anti-national elements, launched an online war against Pakistan through social media and cyberspace.
On the night of November 3, accounts such as X-accounts Frontal Force and Baba Banaras, along with several others linked to the Indian intelligence agency RAW, hinted at the impending attack on Mianwali. They insinuated that "something big" was on the horizon, a claim that points towards India's involvement in these acts of terrorism.
Following the failure of the Mianwali Air Base attack, the Indian media immediately embarked on a propaganda campaign, attempting to celebrate the incident. Adding to the distress, some Twitter accounts, believed to be affiliated with a particular political party, disrespected the martyred soldiers in Gwadar, following a pattern seen in the Lasbela tragedy. They actively engaged in anti-Pakistan propaganda in tandem with India's agenda.
Their celebration of the air base attack and their claims that May 9 was not an attack, but an actual attack, demonstrate a blatant disregard for the sanctity of martyrs and their grieving families.
Additionally, Pakistan has initiated the process of repatriating illegal Afghan nationals, raising concerns about their potential involvement in recent acts of terrorism.
These incidents of terrorism have brought anti-national elements to the forefront, revealing their true intentions and threatening Pakistan's security and stability.
To make matters worse, certain political social media handles have propagated a cynical narrative, suggesting that these attacks are staged to disrupt upcoming elections. This not only reflects a warped perspective but also displays a profound disrespect for the sacrifices of the martyrs and their grieving families.
