Radio Jhuthistan


..............
In an attempt to spread misinformation and disinformation about the Indo-Pak War of 1965, the Radio Lahore would broadcast highly provocative and false propaganda against India. The motive was to demoralise the local people. Later, the All India Radio also launched counterpropaganda. The Radio Lahore provided the comic relief to the Indian listeners, who would get the correct feedback from the AIR. Indians called the Radio Lahore “Radio Jhuthistan”. A renowned Anglo-Indian anchor of the All India Radio, Malvell Demello, was specially stationed at Amritsar to counter the Pakistani propaganda.

He produced a couple of outstanding radio features on the epic battles of Dograi, Barki and Ichhogil Canal. He also produced a special feature on the contribution of Amritsar residents in tilting the war in favour of India.
