Facebook purges several Pakistan-operated fake accounts attacking India

Facebook

Facebook on Tuesday said it removed 453 accounts, 103 Pages, 78 Groups and 107 Instagram accounts that were operating from Pakistan and focused on spreading misinformation in India.

The people behind this network relied on fake accounts – some claiming to be based in India- to post content and manage a handful of Indian military fan Pages and Groups.

“The vast majority of the accounts, Pages and Groups engaged in coordinated reporting of content and people that were critical of Pakistan’s government or supportive of India, and some engaged in spam,” the social network said in a statement.

The people behind these malicious accounts also used a browser extension to automate reporting.

“They posted primarily in English and Hindi about regional news and current events including memes and content about social and political issues in Pakistan and India, such as India’s policies toward China, the Indian military, criticism of the Indian government and its handling of the coronavirus pandemic,” Facebook said.

The company found this network as part of its internal investigation into suspected coordinated inauthentic behaviour in the region.

About 70,000 accounts followed one or more of these Pages, about 1.1 million accounts joined one or more of these Groups and less than 11,000 accounts followed one of more of these Instagram accounts.
