The photoshopped image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi posted by the group Never Forget Pakistan as part of their online campaign called ‘What if you knew the victim.’

New Delhi: Sixteen days of protests and shutdown in the Valley and the controversial exertion of pellet guns by the Indian armed forces in Kashmir has sparked off a hard hitting campaign by a Pakistan group on Facebook.

A Pakistan-based society — ‘Never Forget Pakistan’ — has launched an online campaign to draw attention to the Kashmir issue using the photoshopped images of Indian politicians and celebrities.

Photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, cricketer Virat Kohli and actors Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai have been used.

The images have a distinct feature: they sport an injury mark on their faces and is accompanied by a letter signed by a ‘real’ victim.

“The stories in the letters are real.. Just the victim you see in the picture is not real. But do you care what is the profile of the victim for you to sympathise and empathise with them?” the Facebook group questions.

Pakistani leaders had earlier encroached into the internal affairs of India observing a “black day” to protest against the killings in Kashmir on July 20. This action of Islamabad drew angry reactions from India, which criticized it of harbouring terrorists and duplicitous state institutions seeking to destabilise the region.

Ever since the killing of Hizbul-Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8, Kashmir has been on the boil. His death sparked violent protests in the Valley that killed about 47 people and wounded hundred others.
