An Indian news channel, made a false claim that in a so-called ‘F-16 crash’ a PAF pilot ‘Shahzaz-ud-Din’ was martyred (is it even a real name, we wonder!).
In the same fictitious story, the channel ran the images of a serving PAF pilot Group Captain Agha Mehar, who is VERY MUCH ALIVE.
GC Agha Mehar spoke to senior Pakistani journalist Wajahat Saeed Khan and exposed the lie of the Indian media, complaining against his pictures running on Indian channels.
India has more fake news than anywhere else in the world: survey
It is interesting to note that a recent Microsoft survey report laid bare the suspicious credibility of the Indian media.
India has more fake news than anywhere else in the world, with more than 60 percent of Indians likely to encounter fake news, a survey conducted by Microsoft revealed.
The survey, which covered 22 countries, reported that 64 percent of Indians had encountered fake news, compared to the global average of 57 percent.
