The special aim of them was that the feeling of nationalism should not be there in indian muslims and they should think and feel that indian and Hindus are against them and will do everything to destroy them and their culture.
This feeling of hatred among Muslim will create hindu muslim fights and Pakistan will take the advantage of it was the intention.Efforts are being made from across the border to spread misinformation , fear and confusion through fake news and anti India content said information and broadcasting minister Anurag Thakur in a video message.
