The government of Pakistan has alleged that the email about a possible security threat that was received by the New Zealand cricket board which ended up cancelling their tour of Pakistan had originated in India.
According to Fawad Chaudhry, Federal Minister For Information & Broadcasting in the Pakistan government, the email which prevented the New Zealand cricket team from touring their country for the first time in 18 years, had come from an IP address located in Mumbai.

In an official press conference, Chaudhry broke down the entire progress of how the issue of the security started off with an alleged “fake Facebook post” followed by an email to Martin Guptill’s wife which said that the her husband will be killed in Pakistan.
He also says that New Zealand cricket received yet another message mere hours before they were supposed to play against Pakistan, in which the writer had threatened to install bombs across the Black Caps’ route, at their hotels and even their flights.
However, towards the end of the press conference, Chaudhry added that the final email which was sent to the New Zealand squad came from an account which was made on a electronic device with 13 other IDs – all of which had “Hindi names” in it.
Finally, the minister alleged that a Mumbai resident by the name of Om Prakash Mishra was the man behind making these threats to the Kiwis. He doubled down on his original statement in suggesting that the terror threat came from Mumbai, Mararashtra.

As they say, the memory of the Internet never fails and just as Chaudhry stated the name ‘Om Prakash Mishra,’ they quickly flocked to the infamous song ‘Aunty Ki Ghanti’, especially because the name of the lead singer was also Om Prakash Mishra.
Ever since the conference got over, Indian critics of the Pakistani government have not only brushed aside the hilarious allegations but have also started watching Om Prakash Mishta’s one-hit-wonder song on YouTube, while sharing the link to the video in the reply section of the official tweet released by the Pakistan Government account.

“It is not new for Pakistan to engage in baseless propaganda against India. Pakistan would do well to expend the same effort in setting its own house in order and taking credible and verifiable action against terrorism emanating from its soil and terrorists who have found safe sanctuaries there,” Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said in July.
“The international community is well aware of Pakistan’s credentials when it comes to terrorism. This is acknowledged by none other than its own leadership, which continues to glorify terrorists like Osama Bin Laden as ‘martyrs’,” he said.Internet Explorer Channel Network
