A picture of a message by the Delhi Government published in a Newspaper is being shared on social media. The advertisement is regarding the compensation for the Delhi riot victims and their families.
The header of the advertisement read, ” दंगा पीड़ितों की मदद हेतु” (For aid of riot victims) and “Muslims” can be seen written on the top right side.
NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found that it has been morphed.
We carefully examined the picture and found “Dainik Jagran” written on the top left corner of the page.
Moreover, on putting the picture through a Reverse Image Search, we found a tweet dated Feb 29, 2020, featuring the original picture.
Following the above leads, we checked the e-paper of Delhi Edition of Dainik Jagran published on Feb 29, 2020, and found this advertisement on Page number 12.
As can be seen in the above picture, the word “Muslim” is not written anywhere in the copy.
The above information proves that the original copy was edited to give it a communal twist and hence the post is False.
