A Propaganda Advertisement in New York Times shared as front page coverage

  • Share


Many users on social media are sharing a picture of "The New York Times" with a claim that the US-based newspaper has reported that 8 million Kashmiris are under siege by a million armed forces.

The text on the picture reads, "Kashmir #EndTheSiege 8 Million under siege by a million soldiers since August 5th’ and The seizing of Kashmir is blatant racism".

The picture has been tweeted by several users on Twitter. (Tweet1, Tweet2, Tweet3)

The picture further claims that Kashmir has been occupied for more than 70 years which has resulted in more than 60 thousand deaths and 1 million injuries till date.

Our Investigation

From the image itself, it is clearly visible that the two newspapers have been placed on the top of each other as highlighted in the image below.

On the bottom left corner of the page – ‘Sponsored by International Humanitarian Foundation Inc’, with the website details of the organisation is written on the picture.

When we scrolled through the website of International Humanitarian Foundation, we found that the organization had held a protest on September 22 against Narendra Modi.

On further investigation, we found a report by ANI about an advertisement in the New York Times by the International Humanitarian Foundation.

According to ANI, this was an advertisement rather than reporting. The advertisement is nothing but propaganda by separatist and Pakistan supporters.

NewX has published a very good rebuttal to this advertisement.


The people on social media is falsely claiming that the New York Times published an anti-India new report. It was an advertisement by the International Humanitarian Foundation.

However, the New York Times had indeed published a report about Kashmir on its front page on August 10. In the report, they had called Indian-controlled Kashmir.
