A post is being shared on social media claiming that Israel had recently advised India to print “KASHMIR BELONGS TO INDIA” on every Indian currency note. This post claims that Israel had suggested this idea to stop Pakistan from printing fake Indian currency notes. Let’s verify the claim made in the post.

The archived version of the post can be seen here.

Claim: Israel advised India to print “KASHMIR BELONGS TO INDIA” on every Indian currency note.

Fact: In August 2017, Israel announced that it will never support Pakistan on the issue of Kashmir. But, Israel has not given any such advice to India to print “KASHMIR BELONGS TO INDIA” on currency notes. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.

When we searched to check whether Israeli officials had made any such statement recently on Kashmir, we could not find any news report about Israel’s advice to print “KASHMIR BELONGS TO INDIA” on Indian currency notes. If Israel had advised India to print “KASHMIR BELONGS TO INDIA” on currency notes, most media outlets would have published articles reporting that information. But, we could not find any such report on the internet.

In August 2017, Israeli officials had made a press statement that Israel will never support Pakistan on the issue of Kashmir. Israel had endorsed the Indian Government’s position on Kashmir and mentioned Kashmir as an integral part of India. But, Israel had not given any such advice to India to print “KASHMIR BELONGS TO INDIA” on currency notes.

To sum it up, Israel hasn’t advised India to print “KASHMIR BELONGS TO INDIA” on currency notes.
