There is no surprise here. The verified Facebook page and twitter of Pakistan Defence Forum has been suspended because they shared a morphed image of a Delhi University student. They also shared a fake news about Kulbhushan Jadhav stating that India has refused offer made by Pakistan to make Kulbhushan Jadhav and her wife meet. String of fake tweets and their account was suspended.
It should be noted that Pak defence Forum or defence.pk is the oldest running forums devoted to the armed forces. Pakistan defence forums which describe themselves as “a one stop resource for Pakistan defence, strategic affairs, security issues, world defence and military affairs”. They keep on posting anti-india propaganda on their social media profiles.
Veterans and serving Pakistani soldiers are among the forum members but it is not the official website of Pakistan army.
As soon as the tweet was made by Pak Defence Forum, many Indians reported to twitter. The real picture was of Delhi university Student, Kawalpreet Kaur and it was clicked at Jama Masjid. It said, “I am a citizen of India and I stand with secular values of our Constitution. I will write against communal mob lynching of muslims in our country”.

All of them flagged it and that’s why the page was suspended.
I hope this is not official defence page of Pakistan otherwise there is a real security concern if you use morphed pictures just to spread hate across nations. Please put it down.

The forum also tweeted that India has refused the “generous offer made by Pakistan to felicitate a meeting between Kulbhushan Jadhav and his wife”.
In reality, India has accepted the offer and asked to also include Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother to be in the meeting and Pakistan Foreign Minister also acknowledged the same.
Indian Reply to Pakistan’s Humanitarian offer for Commander Jadhav received & is being considered

As Twitter and Facebook was suspended, certain members of Pakistan Defence Forum abused the Indians. The old habit of blaming India for each and every problem they face.
