Deccan Chronicle reported –
The Twitter handle of the City Police was seen replying with the original image to tweets that had morphed pictures of Hindu deities hung over a masjid.
Some of the morphed photos were uploaded yesterday and today and the intention was to provoke an angry reactions. The culprits would be punished, said the police.
Describing a photo in which a picture of Lord Rama is placed on the compound wall of a mosque, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Abids, G. Biksham Reddy said: “The photo was taken from an angle from where it looks like the picture is hung over the mosque but if one moves slightly aside, we can see that the actual image is far away.”
A case has been registered and a probe ordered to find the source of the false picture. A vernacular news channel actually shared the image on Facebook, without verifying its authenticity, with a caption reading: ‘Requested to the police commissioner to remove this poster from Masjid Osmangunj’.
It was picked up and shared on Twitter with netizens tagging KTR, Telangana DGP and Hyderabad city police and asking them to remove the same.
The twitter handle of the Hyderabad police gave a prompt reply to this post by saying ‘Sir it is a fake picture’, along with an image taken from a different angle.
The police say this has never happened before during any religious procession. Many on twitter replying to the police, said, ‘Hope the people in Twitter are more intelligent’. Despite being warned not to believe everything you see on social media platforms, people continue to do so, and forward misinformation.
