FACT CHECK

When NewsMobile fact-checked the viral picture, we found that it is not from the Aligarh Muslim University.
While checking for the origin of the picture, we came across a tweet by the verified Twitter handle of UP Police which confirmed that the above banned was not used in AMU.


On putting the picture through Reverse Image Search, we found that poster with PM Modi’s picture on it was used in a protest outside the Indian High Commission in London.

On August 15, protestors waved Pakistani and Kashmiri flags outside the Commission against the scrapping Article 370 which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
Hence, the above information proves that the banner was not used in Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) as clamed in the viral posts.
