Disinfo Lab presents a comprehensive report based on OSINT research on how India’s faultlines have been exploited by the foreign entities.
The narratives imposed on India range from Islamophobia, to Kashmir, to Casteline, and Fascism, Hindutva and Genocide. It all started with exposing a fake white expert Pieter Friedrich and his ISI-Khalistani operative Bhajan Singh Bhinder who was associated with a Khalistani group Sikh Youth of America and during 1990s, he sent weapons once for carrying out terror attacks in India. He changed his tactics from proxy war to information war against India. He was blacklisted by the Indian government and during that time, he identified Pieter Friedrich for his operations. They opened a number of orgs together including OFMI which was shut last year.
The narrative war of Casteline has been led by the US-based organizations, who have had no present associations with India such as Equality Labs, whose founder Thenmozhi Soundarajan was born & brought up in the US, now runs campaign against India on several issues such as CAA-NRC and on Kashmir.
Jamaat plays a key role in denting the Indian fault lines on various aspects. It has been targeting India on the grounds of religious freedom through a US Federal govt. commission United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) via lobbying. Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC) was lobbying the USCIRF since 2013-14 and continued its vicious campaign in 2018-20 via the US Jamaat front Burma Task Force (BTF). Both IAMC and Burma Task Force were founded by Shaik Ubaid and Abdul Malik Mujahid, the former members of ICNA (US arm of Jamaat-e-Islami), and they constantly prong attack on India.
Another key narrative launched against India is of Islamophobia. It began with a fake campaign as exposed by various factcheckers and DisinfoLabs wherein Pakistani accounts personated Arab handles. A number of orgs in the US including IAMC, Justice For All, ICNA, all Jamaat fronts based in the US. They setup a fabricated DOTO database that records fake news and manipulated stories. Incidentally, DOTO Database was working with a former SIMI member Syed Qasim Rasool Ilyas.
While imposing the narrative of Islamophobia, these fronts also peddle the parallel narratives of fascism and impending genocide of minorities in India. While peddling such narratives, this ecosystem intends to launch boycott campaigns against India and run social media campaigns such as #BoycottIndianProducts with the help of the global Muslim Brotherhood.
Additionally, the narrative of Hindu vs Hindutva is established by organizing events such as Dismantling Global Hindutva. The key organization established for this narrative is Hindus for Human Rights (HfHR), established in 2019 and started working with the likes of IAMC and OFMI. Its founder Sunita Vishwanath and Raju Rajagopal had tentacles spread in orgs such as Foundation London Story and IAMC respectively.
Pakistan establishment and Jamaat continue to graze on the Kashmir conflict led by the ISI mole Ghulam Nabi Fai. All the organizations active on the Kashmir were found to be connected to Fai and his fellows at his now-shut organization Kashmiri American Council (KAC). Some of the orgs active on the Kashmir conflict and linked to the Pak establishment are Stand With Kashmir, Friends of Kashmir, Justice For Kashmir, Free Kashmir, etc.
However, they joined hands with the Muslim Brotherhood to perpetuate the Kashmir conflict in December 2021.
