India is a diverse country with many different people with different religions and cultures living here for ages. The beauty of India lies in the fact that it has lived in diversity for centuries and followed the quote “Unity in Diversity.”

From the majority like Hinduism to the minorities like Jainism and Buddhism, diverse cultures and religions have flourished under the same roof. Being the biggest democratic country in the world, all the people of the country enjoy certain powers that make it easy for everyone to live with prestige in the society.

Let us now know how he propagates fake news:

He being a core BJP supporter mostly spreads fake news on his official account with no regrets towards it. He uses his Twitter account to make sure people know the importance of BJP and Hindutva in the country and sideline the rest of the religions. His main agenda lies in making India a Hindu Rashtra.

Let us now talk about the fake news he spreads in detail:

Fake news1:

Claim: Gehlot government of Congress got the temple gate of Salasar Balaji Dham demolished by bulldozers at midnight.

Antonio Maino has always had a big problem with the faith of the Hindus. At the behest of “10 Janpath”, the Gehlot government of Congress got the temple gate of Salasar Balaji Dham demolished by bulldozers at midnight. The court of Lord Shri Ram was built above the door. Sinners will also suffer the consequences of this. (Translates Hindi) the caption reads.

Fact Check:

We at DFRAC searched the news using certain keywords and google image searches. We found it on The Print and the news stated that the project was under the central government.

We also found a page on Twitter named @bole_bharat that shared the reality of the video.

The demolition of the temple gate was done by a company under NHAI for a 4 lane project of the Government of India. Rajasthan Congress government has no role in it. The caption reads

Under this, a video was shared with the title that states that the demolition was done by NHAI under BJP’s project.

Fake News2:

Claim: Jindal shared a picture on his Twitter handle under the caption, “zoom out please.”

In the picture, there was a digital scroll that read, “BJP’s win “in India’s biggest state.”and was shared on 22nd march post Uttar Pradesh elections

Fact Check:

We at DFRAC found the news fake by reverse image search. The image was basically of the year 17th march 2017 after BJP won the elections in Uttar Pradesh.

BJP IT Cell Chief Amit Malviya shared this picture in the year 2017. News of BJP’s big win under Prime Minister Modi splashed in Canary Warf, a prominent business district of London. Zoom it. #IAmNewIndia. The caption reads.

Hence the news was of many years ago.

Fake news3:

Claim: Jindal shared a video of a drunk police officer. He claimed that this is Punjab has again indulged in drinking after the AAP (Aam Aadmi Party) came into power.

Trends are beginning to emerge in Punjab. (Translates Hindi) the caption reads.

https://twitter.com/naveenjindalbjp/status/1502595213046747142?s=20&t=eX_VUO6ZqVqZkFSTZ3pitw

Fact Check:

After researching on this video we found this video on YouTube captioned, “Punjab Police in Drunken look.”

This video is as old as the year April 6, 2017. Hence, having no connection with AAP coming in power in 2022 Punjab Elections.

Fake news4:

Claim: He shared a picture of ISCKON temple serving food claiming it of Russia-Ukraine crisis.

54 ISKCON temples are feeding the needy people in Ukraine. Sanatan never shied away from the service of humanity. Jai Shree Krishna. (Translates Hindi) the caption reads.

Fact Check:

We reverse search the image and found out that the image is old and is from the year 2019. We found the image on the food distribution column of their official site.

Fake news5:

Claim: Jindal shared a video of Shahrukh khan at lata mangeshkar death ceremony.

It proved by doing this act that it is a solid hoarder.(Translates Hindi) Reads the caption.

He claimed that Shahrukh spit on lata’s dead body after the prayer.

sh

Looking at the video it is quite clear that Shahrukh was offering prayers for late Lata Ji. And, after that, he just blew air on her mortal remains as a sign of love and respect.

To now the whole incident thoroughly check out this fact check by us.

Not only Jindal spreads the fake and misleading news, but also shares hate through his official twitter account to instigate people of one community over the other. He rather shamelessly criticize the leaders of other parties by giving them mockery nicknames.

Like Rahul Gandhi becomes Pappu, Pappukhan, Kejriwal is kejrudin and sweet Terrorist Akhilesh as Akhileshudin etc. trying to jpoin them with particular section of the people.

Here are the links of certain tweets he did on purpose to humiliate leaders of different parties on social media platforms.

He openly criticise in his tweets the building of a masjid or any other muslim property and encourage the establishment of Ram Mandir or any other hindu property. He through his tweets is setting an example how the mind-set of certain people can destroy the harmony between two communities.
