‘Why does Naya Pakistan keep lying and getting caught?’

All Pakistan’s establishment cares about is what plays out in the Pakistani media and social media which is why they keep trying to spread lies and then get caught.

Just the other day, this happened when the High Commission of Pakistan to Sri Lanka tweeted a press release claiming that Sri Lankan President Sirisena supported Pakistan’s position – not India’s – on Kashmir.

However, immediately thereafter the Media Division of the President of Sri Lanka tweeted a statement refuting what Pakistan had said and saying that Sirisena, while meeting the High Commissioner had made no comment on India and Pakistan or Kashmir.

Why do we these things that will only hurt our relationship with our neighbors like Sri Lanka?
