No Such Intelligence Report

Firstly, there are no credible reports validating the warning messages doing rounds online since at least 2017. The alleged warning based on ‘intelligence report’ is signed under a Biswajit Mukherjee as Senior Investigation Officer of The Home Ministry. However, no such post ‘Senior Investigation Officer’ or name ‘Biswajit Mukherjee’ are available in the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs website mha.gov.in. In case, the warning message was true, Indian government channels would have conveyed it to public through news outlets or print media. Moreover, Indian government has concerned authorities in place to check and regulate the cracker manufacturing companies during Diwali.

All in all, the flaws mentioned above and lack of any supportive evidence disprove the warning message. So, the claims about Indian MHA warning citizens about Pakistan sending poisonous crackers through China are hoaxes. Looks like, the intent of spreading the false message is to tell Indians to avoid buying Chinese products during festive season.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.
