NEW DELHI: Social networking sites have suspended the account of Pakistan Defence Forum after it posted a morphed picture of Delhi University student activist Kawalpreet Kaur standing in front of the Jama Masjid with a placard carrying an anti-India message.

“Let us appeal to them as peace lovers to pull it down and apologize. I hope they understand that citizens across the subcontinent want peace not terror and lynchings. The last thing I want is to be used as a pawn for spreading anti-India and anti-Pakistan sentiments,” she said in her Facebook post.

In a tweet, Kawalpreet said, “The account of @defencepk has been suspended by twitter for posting my unverified and morphed pictures. Grateful to all who reported it in large numbers. The message of the picture shouldn’t be lost in these dark times. No nation wants lynchings and killings. Only bigots want hate.”

Pakistan Defence Forum describes itself as a one-stop resource for Pakistan Defence, strategic affairs, security issues, world defence and military affairs. It has all retired and serving Pakistani military personnel as its members though it’s not the official website of the armed forces.

A few months ago, Pakistan’s ambassador to UN Maleeha Lodhi showed pictures of Palestinian victims in the UN and tried to pass them off as ‘evidence’ of atrocities on Kashmiris.
