Did RSS give guard of honour to the Queen? Here’s the truth

A picture collage is being shared online with a claim that when Subhash Chandra Bose was busy forming Azad Hind Fauz, the RSS was giving a guard of honour to the Queen.

“जब नेता जी आज़ाद हिंद फौज का गठन कर रहे थे तब RSS इंग्लैंड की महारानी को सलामी ठोक रहे थे” the text on the post read.

 

FACT CHECK

While the first image of the collage is authentic, we cannot say the same for the second image (the RSS image).

When NewsMobile fact-checked the second image we found it to be photoshopped.

On putting the image through Reverse Image Search, we found an article by Sabrang India on Yandex. Interestingly, the article features only one part of the viral image, the RSS squad.

On further investigation, we found that this is PTI Image and has been used by media outlets. You can see the articles here, here and here.

We then cropped the image of the Queen and a Reverse Image Search. We found an article by Who What Wear that features the same image.

We found the original image on Getty Images. “Queen’s 1956 Commonwealth Tour

The above information proves that the post has been morphed and hence, is FAKE.
