Although the cartoon was accurate, it was doctored and never published in the New York Herald. It was published in MintPress News.
To begin with, despite being created in 1835, the New York Herald was a daily American newspaper that discontinued publication in 1924. That is to say, the journal ceased to exist more than 25 years before Pakistan was established.
Then there’s the situation. Julian Assange is the subject of the cartoon.
With Julian Assange on the verge of being extradited to spend the rest of his life in a US prison, and the judge declaring he is “duty bound,” some are doubting the UK’s independence and sovereignty, according to MintPress News on Twitter.
The former human rights minister later deleted the tweet after being chastised on Twitter for disseminating bogus news, but has yet to issue an apology.
Former human rights minister Shireen Mazari took a step forward to promote the PTI’s narrative that the overthrow of Imran Khan’s administration was the result of a US-backed “regime change” scheme, which backfired.
