Abstract

Pakistan has been severely stricken with 5th Gen war\ Hybrid war.  The emotional and illiterate psyche of Pakistani nation helps to grow the curse of sectarianism. There had been some sort of sectarian hate and differences among the people from the times of independence and this weak point had been exploited by many different enemies at various stages of our history. But it was ten-folded with the introduction of SNS (Social networking Sites) and the planted hate speech started to reach even more people, most of them being illiterate, war monger, brain washed, underprivileged and were ready to be exploited. So a vital and powerful tool was being mishandled by wrong people and by thedelibrate arch-enemies of Pakistan. This research will be qualitative, for that different article, analysis, news reports and research papers will be under consideration.
