An image of Congress president Rahul Gandhi sitting with a portrait of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in the background has been doing the rounds on social media.
The Facebook page ‘हिंदुत्व को बचाना है भगवा लाना है Mission 2024 Successfull’ posted the photo with the caption, “इन देशभक्तों ने यह कौन से देश भक्त की तस्वीर लगा रखी है”.
The image has already been shared been shared by more than 12,000 times.
The photo highlights the photo frame of Aurangzeb in the background and the caption along with it mocking at the opposition.
Alt News did a Google reverse image search and found a list of news articles on Rahul Gandhi filing his nomination for Congress president.
An article published in The Indian Express on Dec 4, 2017 titled, “Congress hails Rahul Gandhi’s elevation as beginning ‘new era’: Who said what” has the original image having Mahatma Gandhi’s portrait in the background.
It is actually ridiculous to assume that people would believe a political party to have a picture of Aurangzeb on their office wall.
The trolls are hell bent towards destroying the secular fabric of the country and demeaning other political parties of the country.
In such times, people should be very careful and should verify the credibility of news source before believing it.
