HYDERABAD: On October 13, 2021, former CBI director M. Nageswara Rao tweeted a picture of a woman holding a green placard.
"Till date, Shias and Sunnis could not become brothers. And some foolish Hindus think that Hindus and Muslims can be brothers (sic)," reads the translation of the message.
The image is morphed.
It is quite obvious that the image is morphed as the text has been poorly edited and blurred out.
NewsMeter performed a reverse image search and found a blog post 'The Beauty of Islam' that carried the original image. The image is from a 2012 anti-discrimination campaign at the University of Mary Washington's Islamic Student Association. The original placard reads, "I am Muslim but I am not Arab. Don't Stereotype Me - UMW ISA Campaign."
The same image was also carried in another blog post 'Islam Itaku' and the image is titled, "I'm a Muslim, but I'm Not Arab."
Evidently, the image is morphed and is falsely shared with communal overtones.
