Fake Wikileaks by The News, Daily Mail Post, The Nation against India

Amidst all the commotions and confusions, news from fake wikileaks about India was published by leading Pakistan newspapers like "The News","Daily Mail Post","The Nation" and others.

The NewsEnough evidence of Indian involvement in Balochistan, Waziristan

Daily Mail Post Wikileaks: India interfering in Waziristian

The NationWikileaks terms Former Indian Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor as a geek

It is strange that how such newspaper agencies could carry on such a news without even slight verification.

Media reaction to the "fake news" published:

Here is Guardian's news about the fake news published by some of the leading Pakistan's newspapers.

An extensive search of the WikiLeaks database by the Guardian by date, name and keyword failed to locate any of the incendiary allegations. It suggests this is the first case of WikiLeaks being exploited for propaganda purposes.

Pakistani Media apologize for publishing "fake news" :

The News News agency fails to confirm source of WikiLeaks disclosure

The story was released by the Islamabad-based Online news agency and was run by The News and Daily Jang with the confidence that it was a genuine report and must have been vetted before release. However, several inquiries suggest that this was not the case.

Media Responses :

ReutersPakistani papers retract WikiLeaks story on India

Times of India Pakistan papers apologise after running anti-India fake WikiLeaks cables

Although the release of confidential information by Wikileaks may be a debatable one, release of fake news without any sort of verfication using Wikileaks name is totally unacceptable. This totally defeats the idea of Wikileaks.

About Wikileaks : 

From Wikileaks,
WikiLeaks is a not-for-profit media organisation. Our goal is to bring important news and information to the public.

Publishing improves transparency, and this transparency creates a better society for all people. Better scrutiny leads to reduced corruption and stronger democracies in all society's institutions, including government, corporations and other organisations. A healthy, vibrant and inquisitive journalistic media plays a vital role in achieving these goals. We are part of that media.

We assess all news stories and test their veracity.Typically we will do a forensic analysis of the document, determine the cost of forgery, means, motive, opportunity, the claims of the apparent authoring organisation, and answer a set of other detailed questions about the document. We may also seek external verification of the document.Most of all, we want readers know the truth so they can make up their own minds.

The release of the fake news is totally against the main objective of Wikileaks. This has been done mainly to influence the general public and instigate tensions between the two classes.

Monday, November 1, 2010 (GOTD) domain expired? [Issue solved]

Update: This problem should now be over. In case, you still encounter the parking page, using a proxy to visit the site may help.

Today when I went to check my favorite website GOTD,I saw the following stating that the domain has expired.

 I certainly knew that there was just no way that the domain would have been left to expire. After a little bit of digging around,I saw an update about this issue on GOTD's official blog ( in the google search results. But,clicking on the link only led me to the above parking page.

The cached page of the GOTD's blog gave the reason.There was some problem with the auto-renew of GOTD domain.The domain has been successfully renewed now but, would take some time to access.

GOTD is expired?..

Hello everybody,

we are aware of the situation with Giveaway of the Day site and are sorry for the inconvenience. Our domain record domain was supposed to auto-renew but failed for some reasons that have yet to be investigated.

Let us assure you that domain has successfully been renewed, still the system needs time to get the site back to proper work.

For those users who still experience problems with access to GOTD, please stay on-line or try to reach us in several hours. We will finally be back! :)

Have a nice day!
GOTD project team

 That is another lesson well learnt for webmasters.Even if you use auto-renew,be sure to check the status of it few days before it expires.

After a long absence....

It has been a year,since I wrote the post - Why do blogs die? Although,I would never leave this blog,those were the reasons for my temporary absence,along with my main work-studies.Sorry,I couldn't reply to many of your mails.

Oh my God,so much has been changed in the last 3 months.The first major thing I noticed was Entrcard changed their market,and they have allowed trading EC credits.This update was released along with few others,which you can read here - Several changes with Entrecard.

Another thing which want to tell is,many were pessimistic about the paypal offer which was my last post.I did get my money on my paypal account on January as they promised.

The next I am planning to do is,a bit of customizing my blog,and my new forum.If any of you have any topics which you want me to write,feel free to tell about it in the comments.
