Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed and Fawad Chaudhry’s latest press conference.
ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry has said fake emails from India behind the cancellation of New Zealand’s Pakistan tour, ARY News reported on Wednesday.
Disclosing the facts behind NZ calling off the Pakistan tour, Fawad Chaudhry flanked by Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed said Pakistan is facing fifth-generation warfare and tweets were posted from India to harm the revival of international cricket in the country.
Fawad said the news regarding the cancellation of Pakistan’s tour by NZ was received minutes before the speech of Prime Minister Imran Khan at the SCO Sumit in Dushanbe.
After completing the speech, PM Khan contacted his NZ counterpart to discuss the issue, but he was informed that NZ is calling off the tour, Fawad said.
On August 19, a post was shared from a fake account named after Ehsanullah Eshan about the possible attack on Kiwis team, if they visit Pakistan.
“Abhinandan Mishra wrote an article in the UK newspaper by making the fake post as a base,” the minister added.
Furthermore, the wife of Martin Guptill received an email about an assassination attempt on his husband, if he continue to visit Pakistan.

The email id used to send a threat to Guptill’s wife was made on August 24 at 1.05 am and the email was sent on the same day.
He said 13 fake IDs were made to sabotage the NZ tour and the device on which the IDs were made is registered in India.
Fawad announced that Pakistan is contacting Interpol on fake email IDs and threat alerts.
After reviewing all the threats and issues, our security agencies declared them as fake, Fawad maintained.
Regretting the decision of NZ to call off the tour, the information said the Kiwis should have shared the nature of the threats before canceling the tour.
