Pak tries to pass off Palestinian as victim of Kashmir unrest
NEW DELHI: The photo of a girl – her face bearing multiple bruises – which Pakistan's Maleeha Lodhi brandished at the United Nations on Saturday evening as an example of "Indian brutality" in Kashmir turns out to be a resident of Palestine. The photograph was clicked in Gaza in 2014 by award-winning photographer Heidi Levine. The girl – Rawya Abu Joma, who was then 17 years old –had been injured during an Israeli airstrike, the original caption with the photograph said. The photo has been carried by many online photo galleries – including New York Times and the Guardian.
