IHH–Turkish NGO Sponsored YouTubers, Portrayed Negative Image of Pakistan
Pakistan and Turkey have successfully completed their 70 years of diplomacy. Pakistan always stands with the political stance of Turkey. Turkey supported Pakistan stance at all possible platforms. Moreover many Turkish NGOs are working in Pakistan for the betterment of Pakistani people.
TIKA, IHH and Turk Kizilay are three big Turkish NGOs working in Pakistan for the betterment and without any doubt their efforts in education, providing drinking water and gardening, helping poor people in the time of disaster, school & mosque renovation sectors are appreciable.
Pakistani people are aware of these social works and admit the positive role Turkey has played for many years. During all this beautiful flow recently we have noticed that IHH – Turkish NGO has invited some Turkish YouTubers belonging to a channel named “Kafalar” and visited all the main cities, maybe to cover their projects like school and orphan centres.
During their visit they get a warm welcome everywhere as always Pakistani people do but they have forgotten every positive attitude and only documented the negative side of their visit.
After completing their visit they have uploaded a video of 22.56 minutes in which they have not missed any clip to downgrade the image of Pakistan whether it is food, place, culture or language they have made fun of each aspect.
We as a Pakistani are facing many challenges related to our country’s image in the world. If our brother country “Turkiye” allows this type of act, it will really hurt our image a lot. That’s why their action against these acts is very important.
Kafalar is one of the biggest YouTube Channels run by Atakan Özyurt, Bilal Hancı and Fatih Yasin.They have more than 7.4 Million subscribers which is a huge number, The video has been viewed more than 1.6 million times portraying a negative image of Pakistan.
Most heart wrenching situation is that they were warmly welcomed everywhere in Pakistan even at some places they were not charged for food but in return they give such a negative video that will surely hit the image of pakistan.
This act will damage the foreign image of Pakistan a lot because they were on an official visit invited/sponsored by a IHH – Turkish NGO. Their act also put a question on IHH activities, what type of projects they are running in Pakistan and what is the ideology of this NGO in actuality.
We will not allow anyone to make fun of our country, and it’s not acceptable at any cost.
It’s also a request from Pakistani Authorities to keep a close eye on foreign NGOs that what type of activities they are performing in our country. If they continue such negative activities these NGOs should be banned.
Being a Pakistani we also request our media channels to rise the voice against the culprits who try to damage and shake the image of our beloved country.
