A photo of a TV mounted on a wall is viral which shows a Photo of UP CM Yogi Adityanath and false text.
Next to UP CM’s photo, the text reads “अगर हमारी सरकार गिरी तो पुरे देश में आग लगा दूंगा – योगी आदित्यनाथ”
English Translation: “If our government falls, I’ll burn entire country – Yogi Adityanath”
We were sent this photo on WhatsApp, on Friday. A close look cleared it to be fake. We tried to contact the channel but didn’t receive any reply yet
- The Channel logo on top right was not known well. We searched YouTube for Gujarati News channel and found the logo of Manyata News matching to this
- The first thing we noticed was Gujarati Fonts on the bottom bar which suggests this to be a Gujarati News channel.
- On deep search i.e. checking many news videos it became clear that they use only Gujarati Language fonts, nothing in Hindi unlike the viral image
This is a screenshot from their videos
- Further there were many discrepancies in the edited image, you can see the difference in color and shape of red patch below
- Difference in the color of blue
- You can see below the image is not in straight line, but is curved.
- The photo of Yogi Adityanath used is more than 2 years old
- Spelling of is “गीरी” wrong. Should be “गिरी”
