@BarefootRaRa, @BestInventoryFX, @BestInventoryPR, BestInventoryPR,@CopingWithCovid, @GruaAbuseArkive, are Pakistani dark Twitter accounts. They are “anonymous” and impersonating identities used by Ms Ramla Akhtar from Karachi. Since September 18, 2019, they are oriented towards hate speech, defamation, calumnious denunciations, blackmail, doxxing as well as calls for violences against the Wakhi minority living in northern Pakistan and against western foreigners. As of October 22, 2021, key data evidence their cyber-criminal activity.

The main focus of the Pakistani cyberstalker is a French citizen, @BernardGrua, living in Nantes, France. As of October 22, 2021, he is named in 2,097 attack tweets. The major addresses of the calumnious denunciations are Nantes municipality, Nantes Mayor and Nantes Police. The most criminal allegations posted against Bernard Grua, are pedophilia, murders, terrorism, Nazism and torture.

Ms Ramla Akhtar, the cyber-stalker, is a woman from Karachi, born in 1979. She settled in Hunza Valley, Northern Pakistan, in 2013. In 2020, she was expelled by the villagers from Gulmit (Gojal, Upper Hunza), where she had a herbal cover shop, after she had physically beaten elderlies. Since, she likely lives in guesthouses between Gilgit and Rawalpindi. She has no proper job, while she spends most of her time on social media. Her source of income raises questions.

In October 2021, Ms Ramla has four identified Twitter accounts. None of them are under her real name. None of them show an actual profile picture. These accounts have changing names and descriptions: @BarefootRaRa was @GruaAbuseAkive from January 2020 to summer 2021. It’s the main account created in July 2015. It represents 18 500 tweet as of October 22, 2021. @BestInventoryPR was shortly called @BetterInventory. It was created in July 2021. @CopingWithCovid, created in May 2010, had also different names before the last one. It is a sleeping account. In February 2020, it was used in place of Ms Ramla Akhar’s main account, suspended by Twitter for one month. While @GruaAbuseArkive was renamed into BarefootRara, a new account @GruaAbuseArkive was created.

A malevolence not assessable at its proper dimension

For more than two years, tweeting against the targets is regular. Giving quickly an idea of the malevolent activity of this stalker is a complex assignment. This person is used to produce long threads about the same topic or again the same victim, whose name will be written once or twice in the threads but not repeated on all the tweets from a same topic. Therefore, reporting the number of times a victim is mentioned under his twitter handle, his name or his professional activity is an incomplete and weak indicator. However, it seems to be the most independant and the only possible option due to the volume of production.

It is not possible to manually identify each bullying threat and to count its posts. Moreover, it will introduce judgemental considerations which could be argued. The following example gives an overview on how a full assessment of Ms Ramla Akhtar’s malevolence is a complicated task.

Playing the Islamist card

Islamophobia accusations have been made popular against France thanks to the campaign handled by Imran Khan government and thanks to Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) fanaticism. It resulted in the terrorist Islamist wave France went through during autumn 2020. This is an opportunity Ms Ramla Akhtar did not miss. She even used blasphemy allegations, which are sentenced to death in Pakistan and which resulted in assassinations in France.

Impersonating the victim

The cyberstalker frequently uses the name of her victims in her twitter handle, like @GruaAbuseArkive or @BestInventoryPR. This name is also presented with or without hashtags in the full Twitter name and/or in its bio. The victim profile picture or logo can be placed in the stalker’s banner. The purpose is to divert the search result under the victim name, to pass a defamatory message to the victim contacts and to multiply this communication by the number of posts shared by the stalker. It is showed on top of each tweet, like an advertisement. Here, almost 20,000 times.

Accusing the victim of terrorism

Alleging a French person conducts terrorism in Pakistan is a singular inversion of the reality. This is, however, a leitmotif of Ms Ramla Akhtar due to Pakistani governance, which relies mostly on blasphemy and terrorism laws to control its population. These are also part of the major invocations for lynching people.
