Fact Check: Photo of BR Ambedkar & his wife displayed on bus in Columbia? Here’s the truth

A picture of BR Ambedkar and his wife Savita Ambedkar’s photo displayed on a red-coloured bus is doing rounds on social media claiming that BR Ambedkar is widely respected in the United States whereas in India his statue is vandalised.

The Facebook caption read, “कोलंबिया (अमेरिका🇺🇸) की सड़कों पर दौड़ती सिटी बस पर बाबासाहब का चित्र यह असली सम्मान है, अमेरिका आज भी बाबा साहब को अपना आदर्श मानता है क्योंकि अमेरिका की अर्थव्यवस्था उसी पुस्तक पर आधारित है जिसे बाबा साहब ने ब्रिटिश काल में अपनी डाक्टर की डिग्री के लिए थिसिस के रूप में लिखा था ‘ द प्राब्लम आफ रुपी’ जिसके आधार पर भारतीय रिजर्व बैंक की भी स्थापना हुई!
और हमारे यहाँ पर बाबा साहब की मूर्ति को तोडते हैं
सोचो अगर बाबा साहब ने इंग्लैंड तत्कालीन प्रधानमंत्री रैम्स मैग्डानोल्ड के अनुरोध पर इंग्लैंड की नागरिकता स्वीकार कर ली होती तो बहुजनों का क्या होता??
जय भीम”

(Translation: Picture of Babasaheb on the city bus running on the streets of Colombia (America). This is the real honour, America still considers Babasaheb as its ideal because America’s economy is based on the same book that Babasaheb had written for his Doctorate degree in British times. It was written as ‘The Problem of The Rupee’ based on which the Reserve Bank of India was also established!
And we break the statue of Babasaheb here.
Imagine if Babasaheb had accepted the citizenship of England at the request of then Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald, what would have happened to the Bahujans??
Hail Bhim)

 FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found it to be altered and misleading.

On putting the picture through Google Reverse Image Search, we found the real picture on God Fully Known Blog dated March 19, 2010, claiming that it is a tour bus.

We also found the same picture on Commons WikiMedia and also on Trip 101.

With the help of Fake Vs Real Collage we can clearly see the picture is morphed.

On digging further, we also found the same picture of BR Ambedkar and his wife on Kravitist.

We found the picture of BR Ambedkar sitting with his wife Savita Ambedkar on Kerala Pool as well.

With the help of Fake vs Real collage, we can clearly see that the social media picture is photoshopped.

Hence, the picture of BR Ambedkar with his wife Savita Ambedkar on the bus is altered and is misleading for the masses.
