    In a recent video, a Pakistani woman named Seema, who fell in love with an Indian man, has been accused by her own family of being an agent for Pakistan while Indian media has labeled her an ISI agent.

    A few days ago, Seema Rind, along with her four children, crossed the border into a neighboring country. When she was captured, it was revealed that she had fallen in love with a young man named Sachin.

    In Hindu extremist organizations in India, there is a term called “Love Jihad,” which alleges that Muslim boys entice Hindu girls into their trap, forcefully convert their religion, and marry them.

    The concept of “Love Jihad” is nothing more than a hoax and propaganda. However, in Seema’s case, the situation has been reversed.

    Seema claimed to be a Muslim, but when a representative from Indian media requested her to recite verses from the Holy Quran or any Islamic word, she replied, “I have forgotten, sorry.”

    When pressed further, she responded with helplessness and a fake smile, silently enduring their accusations.

    During an interview, Seema was dressed in traditional Rajasthani attire, wearing Sindoor (a symbol of marriage) on her forehead.

    She also mentioned that the last time she prayed was during Ramadan, stating, “I don’t normally pray, only during Ramadan.”

    Seema’s story continues to unfold, and everyone is offering their opinions based on their perspectives.

    Some Pakistanis have labeled Seema as a non-Muslim Indian agent, while one social media user demanded that she open her shirt button to prove her identity, whether she is Hindu or Muslim.

    Another user declared her to be an officer in the Indian army.

    One user suggested that maybe the Indian media did not construct the plot correctly, while another called it a complete Indian drama.

    Surprisingly, despite Seema’s strict and harsh attitude towards Pakistanis, the Indian police, known for their toughness, released her on the condition that she would not leave the country. Meanwhile, Seema herself has announced her conversion to another religion.

    During a talk show, when questioned about her Pakistani nationality and her style of speaking, Seema responded in Sindhi to prove her Pakistani identity, occasionally using English words.

    However, she also claimed that she is not educated, which is why she does not know English.

    When Seema mentioned the injustices faced by women in Sindh, Pakistani guest Arshad Ahmed Khan accused her of lying, stating that Baloch women are highly virtuous and that if she had run away from her house, this is the punishment she deserves. Seema replied, “My punishment is death, and my crime is coming to India.”

    Indian media also claims that Seema was found with four mobile phones and a Pakistani SIM card. They allege that she has access to computers and has deleted numerous chats from her phones.

    The anchor raised the question, “Why did Seema possess three fake identity cards and six passports?”

    Now, it remains to be seen whether Seema Rind is truly a Pakistani citizen or an undercover agent for an Indian intelligence agency. The decision will only come after the results of the investigation. However, Pakistani authorities have already contacted India regarding Seema’s case.
