This #FakeNews creator’s fascination for Pakistani Flag has been going on for years. Few have been debunked in last few years, listed below.

Two photos are viral claiming to have Pakistan’s flag decorated on Kolkata’s roads after Firhad Hakim became Mayor of the city.

Facebook post below by Dilip Singh by now has approx 1000 shares.

One Twitter handle by name of Afra Shaikh also tweeted the images. The handle wrote

“कोलकाता का रास्ता और मैन मार्किट में पाकिस्तानी झंडे , फरीद हाकिम के मेयर बनने के खुशी में । फरीद हाकिम मटियाबृज (Port Area)को मिनी पाकिस्तान बतया करता था । अब पूरा कलकत्ता मिनी पाकिस्तान बनने जा रहा है । हल्दीराम बस स्टैंड का नया नाम उसने *हज हाउस* बस स्टैंड का नया नाम दिया ।”
