Against Coronavirus, Pakistan Turns to a Traditional Remedy: Blame Ahmadis and Jews
Ahmadis, like Israel and Jews, are designated ‘enemies of Islam,’ and hence of Pakistan, accused of working in tandem to provoke crises across the Muslim world. Their latest plot?
Every few minutes for the past week, a viral meme entitled “coronavirus timeline in Pakistan’ has been shared by social media users in Pakistan.
Written in Urdu transliterated into Latin script, the meme helpfully conveys the evolution of Pakistani conspiracy theories surrounding COVID-19 from January 2020 till May, as coronavirus has mutated from “Allah’s wrath on China” (January) to the globe-spanning claim that it’s a “hoax designed by Bill Gates to forcibly implant microchips” (May).
