An image of Communist Party of India (CPI)’s candidate for Begusarai Lok Sabha constituency and former President of JNUSU Kanhaiya Kumar has been doing rounds on social media.
In the background, a map of India & Pakistan can be spotted.
The text on the post read: ”इस कुत्ते के पीछे का भारत का नक्शा ध्यान से देखो..अब इसी से सोच लो JNU मे कौन सी PhD होती है और ें लोगो की मानसिकता क्या है|”
NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found the image to be morphed.
A simple Reverse Image Search on Google lead us to the original photograph which shows the background is plain. The Hindu had used the image in a 2015 article.
Hence, the REAL VS FAKE collage proves that Kanhaiya Kumar’s image was manipulated using a Photoshop software.
