0 104

A photo is being widely shared on social media in which a woman can be seen putting tilak on the forehead a man wearing a skullcap.
The caption of the picture read: “भाइयों मैंने इस्लाम छोड़कर हिन्दू धर्म को अपनाया है अल्लाह के नाम पर जिहाद करके लोगों की जान लेने वाला और हलाला के नाम पर अपनी माँ बहनों की इज़्ज़त को दाँव पर लगाने वाला इस्लाम जैसा बेहूदा कोई धर्म नहीं हो सकता अब से मैं श्री राम की शरण में हूँ जय श्री राम”
(Translation: Brothers, I have embraced Islam and adopted Hindu religion, in the name of Allah, killing people and taking the honor of their mothers in the name of Allah, there is no deceptive religion like Islam, which can be treated at the right time. From now on I have surrendered to Shri Ram I am ji shri ram)

The above post is shared by more than 8,000 Facebook users.



When the fact-check team at NewsMobile did a fact check, we found that the claim is FAKE.
On putting the picture through Reverse Image Search, we came across an article by hindi.nyoooz.com dated August 6, 2017 which had used the viral picture.

The pictures were taken in Uttar Pradesh’s Gorakhpur on August 6, 2017 during the ‘Raksha Bandhan’ event, where people from different faiths celebrated the festival to show unity.
The above information proves that the claim is FAKE and the person in the picture hasn’t converted his religion.
