0 178

A picture of PM Narendra Modi’s mother, Heeraben Modi, is being shared on social media where she can be seen looking at a TV screen and clapping.
The post claims that she was ecstatic when Asaduddin Owaisi asked Modi to do justice to his wife Jashodaben.
#असद_ओवैसी ने जैसे क़हा #मोदी पहले अपनी #पत्नी_जशोदा_बेन कें साथ #इंसाफ कर ..
ये सुनकर #मोदी कि #माँ:हीराबेन जी #ख़ुश हो गई, ” the caption read.
At the time of filing the report, the post had around 8,500 shares on Facebook.

When NewsMobile fact-checked the post, we found the picture to be morphed.
On putting the image through Reverse Image Search, we found the original picture that was taken on 30 May 2019, when Narendra Modi took oath as Prime Minister for the second time.
News agency ANI posted this picture on their verified Twitter account with the caption, “Ahmedabad: Heeraben Modi, mother of PM Narendra Modi watching the swearing in ceremony.”

We also noted that the screengrab of India TV used in the viral post has also been manipulated.
So, when we cropped the photo and then ran a search, we found an article by India TV that had the original picture.

This proves that the above post has been manipulated using Photoshop software.
