This man who campaigned for BJP is not Wing Commander Abhinandan.

Spread the truth:

A photo of a man purported to be Wing Commander Abhinandan  Varthaman is  going viral on social media with a claim  that  “this man openly supported  BJP and voted for Narendra Modi”.

The text in Hindi along with the photo states :“विंग कमांडर अभिनंदन जी ने खुलेआम बीजेपी का समर्थन किया है और वोट भी डाला है मोदी जी को प्रधानमंत्री बनाने के लिए और इनका कहना है वर्तमान में मोदी जी से अच्छा प्रधानमंत्री कोई दूसरा नहीं हो सकता दोस्तों पहुंचा दो जिहादियों और कांग्रेसियों तक तुम किसी जवान को जिंदा वापस ना ला सके”.

TranslationWing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman has openly supported BJP and even voted for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He says that at present there can be no better prime minister than Modi. Friends, let the Jihadis and Congress know that they could never bring back any army personnel alive, but Abhinandan not only came back, he voted for BJP too. “

It’s also viral on WhatsApp









The post has been shared by various right wing groups in facebook too. Here are screenshots of several Facebook pages that shared the post.







Although the source and truth of the Photo couldn’t be found on the net, SMHoaxSlayer tried to find out the difference between the original photo of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman  and the purported image  and found that there are several differences between the original photo and the purported photo.


1) Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman has a mole below the left side of the lower lip . But the purported image as one under his right eye. Moles can’t shift places on face like this LOL.



2) Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman’s nose is sharper than the purported image of Varthaman.


3.) समोसा सेण्टर/Samosa Center is written on the shop behind this man, It’s written in Gujarati while In Tamil Nadu, language would be different.

Moreover Varthaman stays at Chennai and so he is expected to vote from Tamil Nadu.  Tamil Nadu is going for the polls on third phase. Around 39 Parliamentary constituencies of Tamil Nadu are going for the polls on April 18, 2019. The story has been debunked by BOOMLIVE too.
