India is bent upon aggressively promoting disinformation around the world. This strategy comes in the ambit of the fifth-generation war. Through media, fake news is spread against the enemy nation. People are manipulated to think negatively about the targeted nation. A group named Srivastav Group has been disseminating fake news against Pakistan and China in 97 countries of the world for fifteen years. The aim was to raise the support base of India and soil the image of India’s enemies. The group has been running one dozen non-governmental organizations(NGOs). Some of these NGOs are even affiliated with the United Nations Organization (UNO). The group recruited fake think tanks and appointed them in European countries. These fake think tanks have been flooding media outlets with concocted news against Pakistan and China for more than one decade. Also, the group financially supported the Islamophobic members of European Parliament. Bogus media outlets have been circulating news of violation of human rights by Pakistan since 2005. The group made such a large network of fake news websites that its lies appeared true. This group has been exposed by European Disinfo Lab in its recent report. The report shows India is a thug country. It conned The European Union and The United Nations Organization (UNO). The undisputed beneficiary of this campaign for spreading lies is the Indian government. This report corroborates Pakistan’s claims of India’s fifth-generation war against it. The affectees of this campaign are not only Pakistan and China but also the European Union and United Nations. What action these international institutions take against India remains to be seen.
