Muslim women will go to watch the film “Pathan” by selling free ration from the Modi government. Read- Fact Check
A picture is getting viral on social media. In this picture, it can be seen that two women wearing burqas are carrying ration sacks. Social media users are taking a dig at the Muslim community by sharing this photo that by selling the free ration received from the Modi government, these women will go to watch the film ‘Pathan’ and then criticize the Modi government.
A user caption: “ The lady carrying the free ration given by Modi and protesting also has to be done by BJP.”
Another user shared this photo and captioned: “ Got ration for free, have to sell it and watch Pathan movie and then abuse Modi ji. “
Meanwhile, many other social media share the same picture with a similar claim.
To know the reality of the viral picture, the DFRAC team did a reverse search of the photo. We found the photo on www.gettyimages.co.uk’s website. On January 10, 2023, women carry sacks of wheat flour after shopping at government-controlled prices in Islamabad.
Pakistan’s economy has collapsed, along with the fall in the rupee in Pakistan and high levels of inflation, devastating floods and global inflation. The energy crisis has put further pressure.
At the same time, we found this photo published on the website www.news18.com in a report on Pakistan’s poor economic conditions. In this report, the viral photo has been described as Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan.
It is clear from the Fact check of DFRAC that the viral photo is not from India but from Islamabad in Pakistan. Therefore, the claim made by social media users is false.
