Jammu: Minister Jitendra Singh said today that “studios” have been set up in Pakistan to promote propaganda and manage content on social media to mislead the people of Kashmir, but the Centre is taking effective steps to counter them.
The minister of state in the Prime Minister’s Office said a “perception is created in these studios on a daily basis and false messages are spread”.
“Intelligence agencies have intercepted recorded false messages like encounter (between militants and security forces) has started and people are requested to reach the spot (to help militants escape),” Singh told reporters in Jammu.
“It is a reality that studios were set up in Pakistan under a well-planned strategy to manage propaganda on social media to mislead the people of Kashmir,” he said.
Replying to a question, Singh said the Home Ministry has taken a serious note of the matter and is chalking out a strategy to counter the spread of false information. PTI
