IYC files FIR for morphed fake picture of Sonia Gandhi on social media

IndiaIYC files FIR for morphed fake picture of Sonia Gandhi on social media

The viral photograph of Sonia Gandhi with a book on Christian conversion has been morphed and IYC filed an FIR in retaliation.

A hunt for the viral image led to the original photo taken from a video shared by Rahul Gandhi in October 2020. The image is really a screenshot of a video that was published by the Indian National Congress in October 2020, where Sonia Gandhi addressed the people of Bihar on matters related to the state’s economy and unemployment.

‘बदलाव की बयार है।’

Sonia Gandhi is seen wearing the same clothes as in the viral image. The bookshelf behind her shows that there is no Bible, no statue of Jesus, and no book titled ‘How to Convert India into a Christian Nation’. There is a space where the Holy Bible is seen in the viral photo and is empty in the original and the conversion to Christianity book has been added by editing the title of another book. The statue of Jesus is nowhere to be seen on the bookshelf. All three of them have been edited into the photo to make this false claim.

National Coordinator, Digital Communications & Social Media of Congress Party Mr. Gaurav Pandhi wrote: Another one from BJP’s Farzi tool kit. The more they come up with fake content, to fool people, the more it gets evident that the BJP is losing and Congress is stronger. The RSS has no way to defend GDP failure and therefore more fake content.

FIR Filed for circulating Fake Image of Sonia Gandhi
As per the latest reports An FIR has been filed against BJP trolls Ms. Renuka Jain, Ms. No Conversion, and Franco’s Gautier in Palghar district of Maharashtra for circulating morphed picture of Smt. Sonia Gandhi. FIR has been filed by Palghar district Youth Congress Prez Capt. Satyam Thakur.

The No Conversion Twitter handle has over the years spewed open hatred to Christians sharing morphed videos, pictures, stories, and statements, ridiculing Christians evoking hatred to the point that statements of genocide to Christians were made.  It is stunning that such a poisonous hate-filled handle remains on Twitter but sources allege the owner of the handle to Shefali Vaidya, a friend of Prime Minister Modi.

In the past, several attempts have been made by the BJP by posting fake or morphed photos of Sonia Gandhi with sexist captions, with an attempt to portray that she doesn’t conform to “Indian culture” and to question her character.

Besides this, many false stories keep circulating about her. It seems strange that the BJP is so insecure of a lady who is Italian and Catholic but has adapted to India and gone to temples, made no attempts to Christianize India but lies keep generating about her. Incidentally, the BJP and should know that Catholics are basically not evangelical, and Catholics immerse themselves in good works as a reflection of their love for God and humanity.

In the past too, several images were morphed mispresenting Sonia Gandhi.

The Congress over the years has never reacted to the slanderous lies of the RSS/BJP against the Gandhi family but since 2019, there was a shift and party members, especially among the Youth Congress started filing FIRs.

BJP Rajya Sabha member, Subramanian Swamy’s conspiracy theories from cocaine to KGB against the Gandhi family were fabricated lies.  In 2019, the Congress party filed two FIRs – in Barabanki, Uttar Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh against Subramanian Swamy for alleging that its former president Rahul Gandhi uses cocaine.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi rallied toxic speeches describing the ma-beta in low language, called the mother a “Jersey cow” and “Congress ki vidhwa”, and the son “Naamdar” and “Shahzada”, and such language not appropriate for a prime minister has revealed the BJP’s negative spin against the Gandhis to malign them with fake news.

It appears that Congress will no longer take the fake news factory spread against them anymore without a tough fight back.
