Ravish Kumar, a popular journalist has been in much news recently. It’s been in news that he has been getting threat calls, abuses, trolled on social media etc.
Two images have been viral for last few days, one is in his favor, another against but both are fake.
I support @ravishndtv #NDTV
अगर आप भी रवीश कुमार को सपोर्ट करते हैं, और भाजपाई के जो गुंडों ने उन्हें जान से मारने की धमकी दी है उसके खिलाफ अगर आप भी आवाज उठाना चाहते हैं तो मिस कॉल करें

When contacted by SMHoaxSlayer, Mr. Ravish denied it and said he didn’t know about this and asked us to try it out and find. On calling it, the phone was cut without any message or name.

This claims that Ravish said “A 14 Lane highway will increase theft and will result in cutting of thousands of trees, will increase pollution” following which reaction to this fake quote is written “This man is a disgrace under name of a journalist. Whether the government does something or not, his job is just to criticize“
When contacted, Mr. Ravish Kumar denied saying this. Further the post itself didn’t give out any credible link or video too along with he post.
