Saturday, India’s interior ministry said that the recent rash of threatening text messages and images originated in Pakistan. The messages with web graphics spiked a panic among migrants throughout areas south and west of India, according to a report by Reuters.
The text messages contained rumors of Muslim revenge in retaliation for violence recently brought against various Muslims.
According to Reuters, some of the images “purported to show victims of mass killings”.
There are more than 200 ethnic and tribal groups in the northeast area of India.
