‘Vast pro-Indian, anti-Pakistan lobbying network exposed’ – EU Disinfo Lab

A report by EU Disinfo Lab, a Brussels-based NGO, has found that “a global network of pro-Indian fake websites and think-tanks is aimed at influencing decision-making in Europe”. The report also claimed that “the co-ordinated network of 265 sites operates across 65 countries”. The report “traced the websites to an Indian company, Srivastava Group”. Moreover, the network was also found to involve groups responsible for anti-Pakistan lobbying events in Europe”. Moreover, researchers believe that the “network’s purpose is to disseminate propaganda against India’s neighbour and rival Pakistan”.

The report further noted:

Using OSINT (Open-Source Intelligence) techniques, we continued our investigation into this network, and this led us to Geneva, where the UN Refugee Agency has its headquarters. There, we discovered – an online “newspaper” that is “approaching 35 years in business”. Strangely enough, Times of Geneva publishes the same type of content as EP Today and produces videos covering events and demonstrations criticising Pakistan’s role in the Kashmir conflict.
