Nowadays a new trend is going in media, that is showing fake news and modifying a news in a new sense. Recently a fake news raised tension between Pakistan and Israel that was illustrated on twitter.
A news was published on a website awdnews. with a title that “Israel Prime Minister: If Pakistan send ground troop into Syria on any pretext we will destroy this country with a nuclear attack”
After reading this Pakistani Defense Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif thought this is true and he tweeted his anger full statement on twitter. The article even issued the fake quote, “As far as we are concerned, that is a threat, if by misfortune, they arrive in Syria, we will know what to do, we will destroy them with a nuclear attack.”
After, this a twitter war started that was totally against Pakistani Defence Minister.Everyone started making fun of Pakistani Defence Minister for his tweet as he tweeted without verifying the facts that were stated on that news site.
Within few hours a tweet came from Israeli Defence Ministry saying that the story on awdnews is totally fake.
After this Pakistani Defence Minister has not done any tweet.
WOW ! how could be Pakistan so careless that just after reading a fake news their Defence Minister started a war against Israel.
The thing to be noted is that it was all a consequence of a fake news, in past months fake news is becoming popular just to raise money a stick action should be taken against this to stop such activities in future.
