BBC retracts the fake news it published on Sikh police officer getting death threats for saving Muslim man

Yesterday, BBC published an article titled ‘India Police officer threatened for saving Muslim man from mob’ claiming Gagandeep Singh, the Sikh police officer who protected a Muslim guy from a mob, was facing death threats and has been sent on leave.

Fake news by BBC

The news was also picked up by other international publication, The Daily Mail.

Daily Mail too published the report.

OpIndia got in touch with Ramnagar Police Station, where Gagandeep is posted and talked to the officials who denied any such threat to Singh.

Even as ‘liberals‘ and other foreign media persons refused to believe the official version denying such threats, putting BBC report on a pedestal, BBC has silently put up a correction that they no longer believe that Singh faced death threats.

They even changed their story to ‘online abuse on social media’.

BBC changed the story completely.

Interestingly, BBC and Daily Mail have a huge readership in the UK which is home to over 4 lakh Sikhs.

International publications have been regularly indulging in peddling fake news and fake narratives about India. New York Times does it regularly and UK publications are no exception either. Instead of trying to invent false news in India in their attempt to create a religious divide and malign Hindus, perhaps UK based publications should focus more on the problems in their own backyard where Muslim grooming gangs have been abusing generations of little girls right under the nose of authorities.
