Twitter has finally suspended the fake Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) handle that had been masquerading as an Arab princess and propagating malice against the Indians and Hindus at large. Earlier reported by TFI, there had been a sudden spurt in tweets from the Arab world condemning India about its alleged mismanagement of the Muslims, referring to the Tablighi Jamaat cult. But as it turns out, a little due diligence on part of TFI had found that most of these handles had changed their names to sound ‘Arabic’ and were operating from the nefarious country of Pakistan.
The suspended Twitter account is @idanialusaf, it was impersonating Noura bint Faisal, a princess of Saudi Arabia by creating a fake ID named @NouraAlSaud and was involved in anti-India propaganda operated from Pakistan. The twitter handle initially went by the name ‘pak__fauj’ and only changed it to sound more authentic and Arabic.
Interestingly, the radical Indian Islamists had been buoyed when the fake tweet had emerged and joined forces with Pakistanis pretending to be Arabs on social media platforms to run a smear campaign against Indians residing in the Gulf countries over criticism of the Tablighi Jamaat and its hoodlums.
According to WION, the Indian security agencies confirmed that Pakistan and ISI-sponsored bots elaborate fake twitter handles had been spreading hatred against India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Gulf countries.

The real Princess Mona issued a clarification on 22 April that the viral tweet was not posted by her. The Indian ambassador to Oman, Munu Mahawar, acknowledged the princess on the same.
I thank HH @MonaFahad13 for clarification on fake social media posts attributed to her.
India values its friendly relations with Oman and will continue working closely with the Government and people of Oman to further strengthen our special relationship.@MEAIndia@MofaOman https://t.co/9FET0ADw1r

The intelligence agencies have prepared a dossier of Pakistan’s involvement in activities of spreading anti-India messages through fake or hacked accounts on social media.
Several high profile Indian liberals and secular journalists fell for the honey-trap set by Pakistan’s ISI. A spineless organization like the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation was also quick to jump the gun as it started criticizing India on the treatment of Muslims. Although, OIC is one big failed organization that no one pays any heed. The absurd organization had lauded China’s efforts in providing care to the Muslims in the communist country (Oh! the irony). Therefore the statements by the phony OIC were not even registered by India.
1/2 #OIC-IPHRC condemns the unrelenting vicious #Islamophobic campaign in #India maligning Muslims for spread of #COVID-19 as well as their negative profiling in media subjecting them to discrimination & violence with impunity.

Although, this is not the first time that Pakistan has tried to engage in cyber-warfare. When article 370 was nullified last year in August, Pakistan in a sheer last attempt had unleashed the twitter bot army but unfortunately, its efforts could not make a single dent. When the North-east Delhi riots took place, the despicable ISI again went on an overdrive and used the same tactics to spread fear and hatred among the Indian Muslims and instigated them to join the jihad against India.
When the tweets emerged, the entire cabal of radical Islamists went bonkers in their sheer desperation to endanger the lives of Indians abroad, the usual and obvious targets being Hindus, aka, kaafirs.
Indian MP Tejaswi Surya was also targeted in the proceedings for a five-year-old tweet where he was quoting Tarek Fateh on Female Gender Mutilation.
Simultaneously, acclaimed singer Sonu Nigam who has been left stranded in UAE because of the lockdown was also hounded for a three old tweet where he had spoken out against the usage of loudspeakers for Aazaan by Mosques in wee hours of the morning.
The terrorist ISI group and the radical Indian Islamists are working closely to create an ecosystem that wants you to believe that Muslims are endangered in the country. Fake Id’s, profiles, and bots over social media—all are devised to peddle more and more lies.
But in the end, all the chatter has been empty din in the social-media echo-chambers, nothing more, nothing less and yet another ploy by Pakistan to create unrest between India and the world community has fallen flat miserably.
