Unofficial and Subversive Media Circulate Rumours and Fabrication on Social Media Platforms

Unofficial and subversive media have been creating and spreading rumours and fabricated news all round to create instability and unrest across the country; sowing discord between the Tatmadaw and the people, and using various ways to create a misleading impression over the Tatmadaw in the international arena. Under this context; 

  • “Khit Thit”, an unofficial media source, created fake news on social media platforms claiming that security forces were responsible for the fire of Irrigation Office and Forestry Office in Kale Town. That is just a vague rumor. In reality, PDF terrorists torched the said-offices and kicked the people who came to put out the fire out from the scenes, threatening landmines were laid at the offices.
  • “DVB TV News”, an unofficial media source, circulated false news on social media platforms stating that security forces destroyed office of a funeral service organization in Ywaysu Village of Madaya Township and its owned-vehicles. It is just an allegation. In reality, security forces were carrying out area security in the township and they had systematically destroyed improvised explosives the PDF terrorists had planted in order to avoid harming the people.
  • “Ayeyarwaddy Times”, an unofficial media source, posted misinformation on social media platforms alleging that security forces setting fire to some houses near the Kalay Technological University. It is just a groundless allegation. In reality, the joint group comprising PDF terrorists and insurgents shelled this University and burned houses near the university on their way to retreat following the security forces’ defence.

          Subversive media which support terrorists are poisoning the entire population with fake/false information all the time, hiding true stories. Those media are intentionally circulating one-sided accusation against the Tatmadaw on social media platforms to disturb peace and stability in the country, reports say.
