Digivijay Singh stoops to new low: Tweets morphed image to attack Amit Shah

After advocating deranged conspiracy theories claiming that RSS was behind the gruesome 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, Digvijay Singh’s credibility, or whatever little was left of it, had collapsed completely. Still, this senior Congress leader, known to be close to Rahul Gandhi, enjoys a position of respect within the Congress. He frequently fires off completely baseless remarks, much like Kejriwal from AAP or Donald Trump in the US.

Today, in an act of sheer desperation (probably going by the mood in Uttar Pradesh), Singh resorted to tweeting a morphed image trying to show BJP President Amit Shah in poor light:

- Ad - - article resumes -

The picture shows Amit Shah bending and welcoming radical politician Asaduddin Owaisi from the AIMIM. The idea was probably to depict how Amit Shah is thankful of the likes of Owaisi and AIMIM, who by contesting in Uttar Pradesh, are helping to split the “secular” vote.

Digvijay Singh did mention that he felt the picture was morphed because Owaisi was wearing a saffron coat, but eventually ended saying that it could also very well be true. But it appears that Digivijay Singh was following the Kejriwal model of “Is it true?”, to spread half-truths and whole lies.

Social media users caught Digvijay Singh and presented him with the original image:

It is in fact a picture of Modi and Shah, and Owaisi’s picture has been photoshopped over it. If one observes closely, even the morphing work is so poor that a significant portion of Modi’s white hair is visible even in the picture tweeted by Digvijay, clearly indicating that it is a fake. It is odd that a senior politician like Digvijay Singh who has a fine eye even for “Tunch Maal”, could not see this “Safed baal”. Also, it is important to note that Digvijay Singh did not delete the tweet even after being alerted by multiple people that it was clearly a fake.

Social media though is ruthless, and Digvijay Singh was relentlessly trolled for his act:

The way Indian media works, it is unlikely that this “post- truth” tweet, will be called out by anyone.
