INDIA vs PAK: Wikipedia page tampering with Pakistani link
Arshdeep Singh’s Wikipedia page was altered after India’s defeat. He was accused of being affiliated with a separatist party. That was pushing for the creation of “Khalistan.” Furthermore, the Wikipedia page articles stated that the bowler was selected to play for the “Khalistani national cricket squad.”
According to an India Today article, a Pakistani link was discovered in Arshdeep Singh’s Wikipedia page altering incident.
India Today reported that the IP address that was used to change the Wikipedia entry for Indian cricketer Arshdeep Singh. Also removed references to the Pakistani military and Parvez Musharaf.
“The same IP address was used in 2014 to alter a UAE Wikipedia article that made disparaging remarks about the Pakistani military. The IP address was used yesterday (September 4) to add a reference to Khalistani to Arshdeep’s Wikipedia page, according to India Today.
