Co-founder of self-proclaimed ‘fact-checking’ blog, AltNews, spreads another fake news by using ‘cropped video’

Sidekick of the founder of AltNews, Pratik Sinha, who likes to stalk and doxx people, shared a cropped video claiming that some members of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) of Gonda, Uttar Pradesh had raised some anti-national slogans during a protest rally against Pakistan

Zubair, co-founder of self-proclaimed fact-checking portal AltNews, which often indulges in co-ordinated attacks against social media users with the help of Islamists, has yet again spread fake news in an attempt to incite communal violence.

Zubair, a sidekick of the founder of AltNews Pratik Sinha, who likes to stalk and doxx people, shared a cropped video claiming that some members of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) of Gonda, Uttar Pradesh had raised some anti-national slogans during a protest rally against Pakistan in the wake of Pulwama terror attack by Islamic terrorists. He urged his followers to retweet the same ‘cropped’ video so that fake propaganda can be shared across the platform to incite communal disharmony.

However, the Gonda police soon issued a statement rejecting the claims of Zubair. They clarified that there were no such ‘anti-India’ slogans which were raised at the protests. The Gonda Police in its statements said the videos pertaining to the VHP protest march is being used for ‘corrupt’ purposes and stated that no such slogans were raised during the event.

The Gonda Police also posted videos of the event to falsify the claims of fake-news portal Alt-News. In the video, it can be clearly seen that there were slogans against the terrorist state of Pakistan, contrary to what Zubair claims.

Despite the clarification issued by the Gonda police, the fake news peddler of self-proclaimed fact-checking website AltNews has neither deleted the tweet nor issued an apology for the same.

This is not the first time that Alt News has indulged in targetting national accounts for expressing their utmost respect for the country. Recently, it had resorted to doxing against nationalist account named Squint Neon (@squintneon) after it had exposed a few Islamists accounts. The Alt-News not only doxxed the details of the social media user but also let-off several Islamists to target the user, inviting a barrage of life threats to Squint neon.

Alt-News founder Pratik Sinha has been notoriously known for doxing and leaking of private information of nationalist social media users and accounts critical of Islamists, Congress party, etc. Earlier, a Twitter user had filed a case against Sinha for breach of privacy and claimed Rs 5 crore in damages. He had also displayed his stalker tendencies (the ones which could morph into even dangerous crimes if not controlled) against Journalist Rahul Roushan by targeting his wife and his newborn 2-month-old daughter.

Self-proclaimed ‘fact-checking’ website AltNews, which is funded by fake-news peddler Arundhati Roy has often been caught lying blatantly and have seldom corrected themselves. Recently, they sought to ‘fact-check’ a ‘clipped’ video of journalist Barkha Dutt but interestingly, left out the quotes where she was actually giving a context to the genocide of Kashmiri Pandits in the valley. Altnews ‘fact-checked’ a retired major from the Army, but willy-nilly refused to respond to his side of the story. Altnews fact-checked a fake image in circulation without bothering to name the ones using that fake image. One of their co-founders happily furthers genocidal accounts wishing for death upon anyone who doesn’t subscribe to the leftist cult. The co-founder of Altnews spread lies about ease of doing business rankings. He shared a fake image of BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa right before the Karnataka elections.

The website did some strange mumbo-jumbo analysis to debunk the news of several youths raising anti-India slogans. The Bihar DGP debunked Altnews claims. They are funded by a fake news purveyor, Arundhati Roy (BBC might be reluctant to admit that Roy is a fake news disseminator, but they can read up here). The co-founder doesn’t bother to fact-check even when fake news hits him in the face as long as it conforms to his political bias and the co-founder of Altnews has retweeted fake images in the past.

Altnews has debunked eyewitness accounts in the past without any conclusive proof because it suited their narrative. Spread lies about OpIndia.com itself and also about BJP’s stand, in retail FDI.
