Amitabh Bachchan didn't say the things on this viral picture

Latest stats reveal that Indians spend 98% of their online time on WhatsApp and during this time a lot of messaging, forwarding of knowledge takes place. However, the authenticity of some knowledge gets ignored. Something like this recently happened when a picture of Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan with a text written on it went viral on WhatsApp.

The text on image quoting Amitabh Bachchan read:
“मैंने ISIS का विरोध करते किसी मुस्लिम को नहीं देखा है।
पर RSS का विरोध करते हुए लाखो हिन्दू देखे है।
मैंने किसी मुस्लिम को होली दीवाली की पार्टी देते नहीं देखा है पर हिन्दुओ को इफ्तार पार्टी देते देखा है।
मैंने कश्मीर में भारत के झंडे जलते देखे है।
पर कभी पाकिस्तान का झंडा जलाते हुए मुसलमान नहीं देखा है।
मैंने हिन्दुओ को टोपी पहने मजारो पर जाते देखा है।
पर किसी मुस्लिम को टिका लगाते मंदिर जाते नहीं देखा है।

Since it came from an influencial person, an opinion soon started to float on the internet. The reality, however, was far from this. The quote had NOTHING TO DO WITH AMITABH BACHCHAN.
After learning about the post, the 75-year old actor and his Digital team took to Twitter to clarify that the statement was not made by Bachchan or any of his associate.
