Pakistan is doing every possible thing to internationalize Kashmir issue as now a Pakistan-based society ‘Never Forget Pakistan’ has launched an online campaign to draw attention to the Kashmir issue by posting photo shopped images of Indian politicians and celebrities — with injury marks on their faces. Photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, cricketer Virat Kohli and actors Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai have been used.
The photographs of each celebrity has injury marks as those of pellet victims during the entire month of violence in the valley.
The Group says,” The campaign is designed to highlight the atrocities done by Indian Armed forces .”
Never Forget Pakistan has titled the album as ‘What if you knew the Victim? #IndiaCantSee #LetKashmirDecide’ The group says the campaign is ‘not about jingoism’ but aimed at creating “empathy”.
Even Pakistan prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and other Pakistani groups have been adding fuel to the fire with their statements as Kashmir continues to boil
with protests since the killing of Hizbul-Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8.
Never Forget Pakistan, a Pakistan-based organisation claims on its website that it works for “advancing a counter narrative to extremism
and terrorism in Pakistan,” has posted pictures of famous Indian personalities including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, Indian Test cricket captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood celebrities including Amitabh Bachhan, Saif Ali Khan, Kajol, Alia Bhatt.
The letter addressed to the CEO reads, “We tried to post your interview and pictures of your injuries on Facebook to get the word out but Facebook keeps on taking them down citing their ‘Community Standards.”
“This campaign is not about jingoism. It is about trying to create empathy. We live in a sad world where we have to present genuine tragedies in a creative way just to make people pause and think for a moment. As advocates for human rights we believe that Kashmir, independent of any force and influence from India and Pakistan should have the right to determine its own identity and future,” it adds.
