Pak's True Lies: Assassinations Allegations, and Anti-India Propaganda

2024 • 38min • News • International


Published On: April 06, 2024 - A recent report in 'The Guardian' about a series of killings in Pakistan linked to unknown gunmen since 2020 cited unnamed intelligence officials from India and Pakistan and alleged that R&AW (Research and Analysis Wing) has been involved in targeted assassinations of individuals charged with serious terror offenses in India. This comes amid Canada's assertions of India's involvement in the murder of dissident figure Hardeep Singh Nijjar and the US urging India to investigate the assassination attempt on Gurpatwant Singh Pannun. Indian authorities have vehemently denied these allegations, labelling the media report as 'false and malicious' propaganda against India. This raises crucial questions: Who are these unknown gunmen? What is the motive behind targeting anti-India terrorists in Pakistan? And will these incidents force Pakistan to acknowledge its role in sheltering terrorists hostile to India?
