A couple of months ago, Ms. Ramla Akhtar, aka Rmala Aalam, was only identified as a troll. This was not accurate while her stalking embraces a much larger panel. We will focus, here, on a particular fraud about website copyrights. Through a collection of false allegations, the cybercriminal misappropriated a family business name, Pamir Serai, and used it to defame its owners, to cut their revenues and to stalk the person who decided to help them.
Table of contents
1. The “website” made by Ms. Ramla Akhtar for Pamir Serai guesthouses was a gift to express her initial enthusiasm for Chapursan Valley and to gain a local recognition
The simple Pamir Serai guesthouses are located in Sost (2 800 m), a small border city on the Karakoram Highway, and in Zoodkhun (3 300 m), the last village of Chapursan Valley. They also include a basic accommodation near Baba Ghundi shrine (4 000 m) at the end of the same Chapursan Valley and at the bottom of the Irshad Pass connecting with Afghanistan. They are located in Upper Hunza (Gojal), a remote moutain region inhabited by Wakhi people, a peaceful ethnic and religious minority of Pakistan.
In May 2015, Ms. Ramla Akhtar, aka Rmala Aalam, made some basic webpages she calls a “website” for Pamir Serai guesthouses: https://sites.google.com/ site/pamirserai/ It was a GIFT as she mentioned on the home page and as she proclaimed on Facebook for a self-promotion purposes.
As a consequence, the “website”, which was given, legally belonged to Pamir Serai guesthouses and to its owner Mr. Alam Jan Dario.
Alam Jan Dario was not even aware of the existence of such pages called a “website.” This shows that this simple task was just performed for Ms Ramla Aalam’s credentials relying on a well established and internationally famous mountain gentleman. At this time, it was not of great importance and of particular interest while Pamir Serai guesthouses were presented on Pamir trails, an actual professional website. However in the hand of a psychologically unstable person, subject to mental disorders, such a situation could lead to further problems. Eventually it was easily turned into a destruction weapon as it will be detail below.
- Issue 1: Ms. Ramla Akhtar kept herself the login and the password.
- Issue 2: The “website”, created by Ms. Ramla Akhtar, disclosing Pamir Serai in its URL https://sites.google.com/site/ pamirserai/ and in its name, could reach efficient SERP’s (search engine results pages) and attract a large part of traffic from people looking for information about its services. A Google search on “Pamir Serai” brings the “website” created by Ms. Akhtar in second position. If the two words are put together as “PamirSerai“, it comes in first position.
2. Ms. Ramla Akhtar’s disillusions and her hate speech against Wakhi people
Ms. Ramla Akhtar started her own business in Upper Hunza. She opened “BetterBonds” a herbal shop in Gulmit, next to Hussaini bridge. Meanwhile, she faced personal disillusions and turned them into hatred against Wakhi people, negatively re-writing what she presented as a personal experience. Here, are some quotes of posts she wrote on her Facebook Blog Page (her wording and typing are kept with no changes):
“…I tell you why I am not a “good woman” who “makes peace”. I did not come to this world for passing my time and to make peace.
I came for SACRED DESTRUCTION, HOLY CATASTROPHE. I came to uproot the vile fruit, I came to turn the soil. I came to open windows and doors and to let the fresh air in…”
“..The list of deceits and our traumas is long.
I was hated minutes after I entered the valley first…
PART of me stares at reality but there is enough circus to distract me. People who call me negative and people WHO JUST ASSUME I MUST BE TALKING SHIT BECAUSE I AM THE COLOR OR CAST OR SECT OR RELIGION OR NATIONALITY I AM. I have seen people assume ALL SORTA THINGS because I am me…
And while I don’t care about it, it’s also hard to not come to your own defense when you are being hauled off unexpectedly one night by the police on account of being… YOU. (Turns out my guide-host and then husband turned me in. HE WAS IN THE BUSINESS IF ROBBING AND TGEN DISCARDING TRAVELERS WHOLE IRCHESTRATING SUCH A CRUEL AND FRIGHTENING SITUATION TGAT MOST WOULD RUN WITH THEIR DAYLIGHTS BLOWN OUT.
But his bad luck… this one last time he chose to mess with a Sufi Pakistani writer with a background in journalism. Fate turned the tables on him… though it has taken us years.)…
You see, these people who lie and pretend that people of my sect are abusing them or whatever… they are fucking toxic racists (when the case is that we haven’t done what we are accused of; obviously wjenever whoever dies an ill deed it is an ill deed.. PERIOD). They have an unspoken pact TO NEVER HELP A MUSLIM PAKISTANI NOT OF THEIR OWN KIND… “
Ramla Akhtar built a pornographic tale to attack the religious and ethnic Wakhi communities and especially the one of Chapursan valley. For more information, see this document transmitted to Pakistani and French authorities: “Report of a French traveler about the Chapursan Valley, Pakistan“.
3. How Ms. Ramla Akhtar impersonated Pamir Serai on its “website”?
Added to her prolific and questionable tale on Facebook, Ms. Ramla Akhtar, aka Rmala Aalam, used all possible means to tarnish Wakhi people and especially Pamir Serai guesthouses family in the sphere of potential local or international clients. She presented herself as a TRAVELER, hiding the fact she is Pakistani and also became a local person.
- On may 2019 she started to publish her “warnings” and defamation under “BlackMoonSoul” ID on Medium. As of today (2020/04/04) she is suspended by Medium due to this media rules violation.
- On June 2019, she obtained Mr. Alam Jan Dario and Pamir Serai being fired from couchsurfing.
- On July 2019, she tried to make foreign visitors staying away of the major annual event of Chapursan Valley, the Baba Ghundi festival through disgusting, insane and slandering words, publications or manipulations. See “The success of Baba Ghundi Festival, a blattant debunk of Ramla Aktar’s defamation”
- On September 2019, she commented as a “Female Traveler” under an article of a famous travel blogger, Alex Reynolds.
- On September 2019, Ms. Ramla Akhtar launched a rabid stalking campaign on Twitter. See: “Twitter: records of a cyberstalker”
- On October 2019, she decided to use Pamir Serai “website” to enhance her attacks against this family business and to deprive this home from its source of income.
Meanwhile, she was still acknowledging the website belonged to Pamir Serai.
4. How Ms. Ramla Akhtar’s impersonation was successfully, but only temporarily, countered?
While Ms. Ramla Akhtar still had the login and the password of Pamir Serai “websIte”, it was not possible to remove her defamation and to clear her impersonation. The only solution was to burry this ignominy.
In December 2019, in accordance with Mr. Alam Jan Dario, the owner of the “website” and its content, Bernard Grua proposed to build another website based on the existing text, to present it with a better design, to add illustrations, to add new information and to boost its SEO (search engine optimization). The address of the new clean website was https:// pamirserai.wordpress.com/. The initial free “contribution” of Ms. Ramla Akhtar, aka Rmala Aalam, despite her subsequent misconduct, was politely acknowledged. None of her malevolent actions were mentioned.
The approach was successful. The new website and its media came above Ramla Akhtar’s “website” as results of Google search text and image. Ms. Ramla Akhtar immediately and abusively twitted that she was victim of THEFT, althought she still showed her “work” was a GIFT.
Ms. Ramla Akhtar, then, prepared another forgery.
5. How Ms. Ramla Akhtar, aka Rmala Aalam built her copyright forgery for control deception and to get the clean new Pamir Serai website removed?
In December 2019, Ms. Akhtar removed the “website” footnote saying it was a GIFT and replaced it by disclosing her property on its “design” and content. Taking back her gift she is the actual person who made a THEFT. Large efforts will, then, be produced to hide this misappropriation, to create confusion and to return, in advance, such accusations. Part of Ms. Akhtar stalking method is to systematically blame her victims with her own turpitudes.
After this THEFT and her FORGERY, Ms Ramla Akhtar demanded and obtained from WordPress the deletion of the new clean website under copyright violation. It was “forgery and use of forgery“.
6. How Ms. Ramla Akhtar went deeper in her forgery while updating her “warning” with additional calumnious denunciations at the top of the home page?
Mr. Bernard Grua… has stolen and reproduced the contents of our website…
False news: The content was not stolen. It was included in a new website for Pamir Serai at a time Ms. Ramla Akhtar recognised it was Pamir Serai property. At this time, a footnote on the home page was still presenting the “website” as a GIFT. Moreover, the new Pamir Serai website was made for free by Bernard Grua to help the family being a victim of Ms. Ramla Akhtar. The content was never used for Bernard Grua’s own interest. No part of any text produced by Ms Ramla Akhtar was ever used by Bernard Grua for his numerous articles about Hunza and Chapursan Valley (see the list and the links in exhibit). Additionnaly, the pronoun “our” in front of the word “website” is obscur and misleading. It is part of Ms. Ramla Akhtar’s usual deliberate confusion creation.
A copyright notice has been filed…
Culprit evidence: This is the written recognition of “FORGERY and USE OF FORGERY”.
HOWEVER it became evident in 2016 that the guesthouse was involved in causing injury to the guest during her stay…
False news: It is one of the numerous defamations produced by Ms. Ramla Akhtar, unsupported as usual. Ms. Ramla Akhtar was a guest of Pamir Serai in 2013 when she arrived in Upper Hunza. In 2016, Ms. Ramla Akhtar was not a traveler nor a guest anymore. She was a local inhabitant of Upper Hunza. What Ms. Ramla Akhtar says about 2016 could simply not happen.
If what she “relates” is from 2013 (when she was guest) and not from 2016, then she would have never made a GIFT she calls a website in such emphatically positive words.
Last but not least, if some prejudice happened in 2016, why Ms. Ramla Akhtar waited until October 2019 to put a defamatory warning on the “website”? Why did she wait until May 2019 to post her defamation article on Medium? None of this makes sens. Either Ms. Akhtar has a very special link with reality when she re-writes her own history, according to her mood or pulsions, either her mental health requires psychiatric assistance.
Note also the fact that the “related party” interest (i.e. Ms. Ramla Akhtar) is purposely hidden and falsely presented as an external testimony: “it became evident”. It is not possible for a reader to understand it was writen by the self called “guest”, a malevolent person wanting to harm a family. Ms. Ramla Akhtr, the magician, created and used one or more witnesses, who do not exist…
…seriously damage the region’s peace…
False news: The family, victim, of Ramla Akhtar is highly respected and is in no-way damaging the region’s peace. This is a typical inversion from the stalker as it is explained in the report.
The designer is an ordinary citizen, climate activist, and a traveler with zero connection...
False news: The “designer” is not an ordinary citizen. She is a person who had strong link with the family she wants to take revenge of. She is not a traveler. In 2013 she moved from Karachi to Upper Hunza Valley. She runs BetterBonds, the Gulmit herbal shop.
…this guesthouse, which is under intelligence watch..
False news: Secret services never communicate their conclusions to an ordinary citizen as Ms. Ramla Akhtar pretends to be. This is a ridiculous conspiracy theory.
…the endorsement is fully withdrawn…
False news: The “website” was never writen nor presented as an endorsement. It was supposed to be a GIFT. What happened with the change of copyright notice is a THEFT as a result of a FORGERY.
For the purpose of documentary records of the concerned, this website is left up as an archive…
False news: This “website” is kept for impersonation and malevolence purposes with the intention to harm while tarnishing Pamir Serai reputation and cutting the family revenues coming from its foreign visitors accommodation.
… in order to rob the designer of intellectual property…
False news: The only goal was to burry the despicable production of Ms. Ramla Akhtar. Bernard Grua never appropriated any intellectual property. He just helped Pamir Serai family to design a new clean website. He did not expect any personal avantage nor payment for his work. He did not, even, mentionned his contribution for the construction of this professional website.
(“website” is) one of the many gifts given to this guesthouse and its owners by the designer…
Manipulation confirmation: Ms. Ramla Akhtar claims a copyright property and meanwhile reasserts it is a gift. It is not compatible. Despite a pseudo legal jargon, this sentence demonstrates the mystification.
..several ways guests can find themselves in trouble after associating with these people.
False news: This is malice with no evidences. Pamir Serai and Alam Jan Dario’s family have a brilliant local and international reputation. This is contrary to Ramla Akhtar’s one whose rantings, racism and religious obscurantism made her a pariah for the complete Wakhi population. See above: § 2 and look on one of her Facebook post. Read, also, how Ms. Ramla Akhtar got radicalised. See: “Pakistan, extremism as a consequence of retardation or as a modernity crisis?“
7. How could Bernard Grua, the author, be sure Ms. Ramla Akhtar produces false testimonies about Pamir Serai?
First of all, this is an anonymous calumnious denunciation with no obvious author and with no evidence produced. Normal readers have no chance to know who is the “We” stating the false warning. Its pseudo “official” formalism is intended to lure readers, while hiding it is nothing more than a miserable personal hatred action.
7.1. Ms. Ramla Akhtar is used to massive stalking under shameless lies
Ms. Ramla Akhtar, aka Rmala Aalam, proved that she is a stalker and that her statements results from blatant lies. Above, it was showed that she pretends having been stolen for a text she gave to Pamir Serai. Here below is one of her more than 1000 stalking Tweets against Bernard Grua produced under her impersonating account @GruaAbuseArkive. It is the same method of confusion, defamation and calumnious denunciation than the one used for the warning on the “website”.
7.2. Like extremists of the fascist and neonazi alt-right, Ms. Ramla Akhtar makes an intensive utilization of false paedophilia allegations
In western country, paedophilia is a classical accusation from fascist and neo-nazi people when they want to attack someone because there is no need to produce evidences for this crime. The allegation, in itself, is enough to cause public animosity and damage. Bernard Grua, because of his peace and anti-Putin activism, has been accused of paedophilia by an alt right troll, Guillaume Lopez, who does not know him. Nantes, where lives Bernard Grua, was never mentioned by this troll who lives in Grenoble (opposite part of France). Guillaume Lopez was sent three times to physiatric emergencies. He was jailed for having repeatedly threatened a Member of Parliament.
No political parties (plural is classical exaggeration of Ms. Akhtar), not even one, ever mentioned any paedophilia regarding Bernard Grua in Nantes or in any other place. Ms. Ramla Akhtar tried numerous times to get her attacks supported by politicians of the “Rassemblement National” (previously named “Front national”), the French racist far-right party. She never got any answer.
Ms. Ramla Akhtar gives us one example of her false news cooking, confusion method and systematical exaggeration. Here, an alt-right troll (Guillaume Lopez) is considered as a far-right party. Then, this far-right party (Rassemblement National) is presented as “French political parties”.
7.3. Ms. Ramla Akhtar is a recognized identity thief and over-uses impersonation
On December 2019, Ms. Ramla Akhtar renamed her main Twitter account, @barefoot_rmala into @GruaAbuseArkive. Doing so she stole Bernard Grua’s last name. She also stole his profile photo. She used his first and last name in her Twitter name and bio under always changing calumnious denunciations. Here-below is an example.
Ms. Ramla Akhtar who lives for confrontation demonstrated to Bernard Grua, the author of this article, that she cannot be trusted for any of her statements.

“This charming guesthouse is an essential address, although a little rudimentary. It has 3 bedrooms with bathrooms (with hot water!). A common room full of light allows travellers to meet, read or prepare for the rest of their journey. Alam Jan, the owner of the place, walked, rode on horseback or yak all over the region and the surrounding mountains to the borders of Afghanistan. He will be happy to give you advice and share his memories or legends gleaned from his travels in the Pamir, Himalayas or Hindu Kuch.”
“A really nice guesthouse in Zuwudkhoon, the last village in Chipurson valley. Alam, the owner, has been running this place for over 2 decades. He is a man of the mountains and will offer great advice if needed. Comfortable rooms and areas to relax in, and a glass sunroom with beautiful views of the mountains. He will also try arrange a visit to Baba Ghundi, which is not meant to be allowed for foreigners. You eat meals with the family”
“In Zood Khun, Pamir Serai offers traditional accommodation in the house of Alam Jan Dario. This means you eat and sleep with the family in the traditional house on floor mattresses. Pamir Serai also has a hut with a basic kitchen and mattresses and blankets at Baba Ghundi which can be used by guests.“
“There are a lot of sceneries, traditions, mountain local life to observe in Upper Hunza. Pamir Serai collected links to photography works, to videos and to social media for comforting you with a trip or a vacations project in Chapursan Valley.”
