As a responsible democracy, India does not practice disinformation: MEA on EU DisinfoLab report

New Delhi/IBNS: As a responsible democracy, India does not practice disinformation campaigns, the External Affairs Ministry said Friday dismissing a report by Brussels based EU DisinfoLab that claimed 10 UN accredited defunct NGOs were revived to serve Indian interests and discredit Pakistan at the EU and the UN Human Rights Council.

Refuting the 15 year-long alleged disinformation campaign against Pakistan in the report, India, without naming Pakistan, pointed out that it was the country next door which is circulating fictional and fabricated information.

"In fact, if you are looking at disinformation, the best example is the country next door which is circulating fictional and fabricated dossiers and purveys a regular stream of fake news," MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said in the weekly press conference on Friday.

Calling out Pakistan for having a long history of sheltering terrorists and propagating cross-border terrorism, India said "Disinformation is practiced particularly by those who have records to hide such as sheltering international wanted terrorists including Osama-bin-Laden."

India also stated how Pakistan had lied and used false information to "seek unsuccessfully to cover up their own tracks such as on the 26/11 Mumbai attack".
