A picture of a man wearing a red coloured mask with CPM (Communist Party of India (Marxist)) imprinted on it has gone viral all over social media. The post takes a dig at the mask which resembles an underwear.
The Facebook caption read, “सी.पी.एम. मास्क…! पर मुझे तो चढ्ढी लग रहीं हैं”
(Translation: C. P. M. Mask…! But it is looking like an Underwear)
NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found it to be morphed.
On putting the picture through Google Reverse Image Search, we found the real picture on Piximus.
Moreover, we also found the real picture in a listicle of ’73 Awesome Pics to Make Boredom a Thing of the Past’ on eBaum’s WORLD dated May 21, 2020.
With the help of a Fake vs Real collage, we can clearly see that the original picture is morphed with text ‘CPM’ which has been digitally added.
Hence, with the help of the above information, it is clear that CPM is not imprinted on the mask. Don’t fall for such altered pictures.
