A page followed by 40 Lakh people should have a sense of responsibility, but for years, time and again popular Facebook Page “The Back Benchers”have been posting some sugar coated lies which people fall for.
This photo they posted claiming to be of VishakhaPatnam while this actually is Copacabana Beach, Brazil.
But just as people heard the lie that this belongs to our country, there patriotic gene popped up and started sharing like there will be no tomorrow. Approx 4000 Shares and no body cared to look for the truth.
But yes, we Indians want to be proud of our country no matter even if it’s Mars or Pluto, and exactly this fake sense of patriotism is being used by such pages to gain popularity.
