Old Video from 2013 peddled to stir communal tension: Case registered

A blasphemous video of evangelist Mondithoka Sudhir from 2013 was made to resurface on social media, in a bid to incite communal violence. Three handles have been identified for peddling the video, with an intention to stir communal tension in the state. Almost all the handles have tweeted the same video with almost similar text that accuses the current state Govt. in promoting religious tension in TTD. Our fact-checking team, found this video to be from 2013.

The tweets in question, has been forwarded to Police cyber department and a case has been registered.

Hysterically, one of the handles, which posted the fake news, is named as “PeddlingTruth”.  This kind of handles with interesting misleading names, make normal users believe in twisted facts and fake news.

We are humbly requesting everyone to refrain from posting unverified fake news.
