There is a debate on social media on conversion or homecoming. People keep posting about it. Internet too is fulfilled with this conversion game. It is done by a person not in the greed of money or property but in the greed of likes, comments, and followers. In this game, it is not changed from the original religion or faith, but only by the change in name. If a user’s name on Twitter a year ago was Salim, then the same user is Suresh at present. At the same time, two years ago, if a user used to tweet by the name Ramesh, then he is currently posting under the name Rameez. There are many users who have become direct MLA from a common man and are being followed by big politicians and ministers. All this game is being played by the username change. In this exclusive story of DFRAC today, we are providing you with an analysis of some of the accounts with the same name change, which was earlier named after another religion, but now has become of another religion.

There is a user named Nazu Khan on Twitter. This account continues to comment on Islamic and current political situations. When the information about this account was collected, the fact came to light that the account’s ID now belongs to Naju Khan which was earlier used to be Ravish Kumar. With the username of Ravish Kumar, all the issues of the country and the world were tweeted.
A big interesting tweet has been posted with the username Ravish Kumar. A tweet read: “Vikas Gupta, who has posted provocative posts on social media as Raj Khan, has been arrested by Varanasi Police. The interesting thing in this tweet is that the id of Ravish Kumar from whom this thing has been written is fake itself and at the moment the ID is running under another name.
At the same time, several posts have also been made against The Owner of Sudarshan News Suresh Chavhanke from this ID.
One should be careful of opinions given by social media accounts. Many people create fake profiles and handles to spread fake news and misguided opinions. Don’t fall into such traps and follow only such accounts which are legit and authentic. In this DFRAC Exclusive analysis we have analyzed the accounts of all these IDs, it has come to light that all of these users keep on changing their usernames and religion to gain followers, likes or for any propaganda on Twitter.
Later these accounts either sell it to the buyer or just change their username to follow another agenda. DFRAC will keep on exposing such fake and deceiving accounts to spread awareness.
