Fact Check: Reality of the viral picture of the woman holding placard of ‘Go Back Modi.’
Many news has come out regarding PM Modi’s Bali, Indonesia visit for the G-20 summit. Meanwhile, a picture of a woman holding a placard is doing rounds on the internet. On the placard ‘Go Back Modi…again Go Back Modi’ is written. Sharing the picture a Twitter user @SaoirseAF, wrote, “Bali, Indonesia Nov, 2022.”
Similarly, many other users have shared this picture on their social media handles.
On image reverse search, the DFRAC team found the picture of the same woman holding the placard on the verified Twitter handle of Wajahat Al, an author, and Columnist. He posted this picture on July 1, 2022, with the caption, “This lady has been holding this sign at the middle of the intersection, stone cold, not a word uttered. I still think the country is underestimating the anger of women and Gen Z. They won’t take this sitting down. They won’t go back.”
However, the text on the placard is different here. It is written here that, “DEMOCRATS AND INDEPENDENTS MUST UNITE TO VOTE OUT REPUBLICANS. VOTE BLUE THIS NOVEMBER PAID FOR BY CONCERNED CITIZEN.”
Therefore, from this DFRAC fact check it is clear the viral photo is edited. Therefore, the claims of users sharing this picture is misleading.
