Kavita Krishnan uses 4 year old photograph to claim PM Narendra Modi was laughing after Pulwama attack

The Photo was taken on 25th July 2015 in Patna

There is no stop in lies by liberals in the aftermath of Pulwama attacks. There are rumours being spread that Kashmiri Students were harassed in various parts of the country after the attacks. Now, left-wing activist Kavita Krishnan has resorted to using an old photograph to peddle a lie.


On 17th February, Kavita Krishnan posted a tweet saying that while the entire nation is crying due to the Pulwama attack, Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with his friends like Nitish Kumar, Sakshi Maharaj are laughing and having fun at election rallies. She made the comments quoting a tweet by a Twitter user who had posted a photograph which shows Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar laughing together. Kavita Krishna tried to imply that the photograph was taken after the Pulwama attacks, and PM Modi is so insensitive towards the attack that he laughed loudly in public just after the horrific terror attack.

The photo seen here in a July 2015 report of Indian Express

But the fact is that the photograph that Kavita Krishnan was referring to is very old, and is not after the Pulwama attack. The Photograph was taken on 25th July 2015 in
Patna, where Modi had addressed an election rally ahead of assembly elections. Although both the leaders are seeing sharing a laugh in the photo, they were political opponents at that time, as Nitish Kumar had allied with RJD ahead of the assembly elections.

This means the allegation that Modi was having fun at election rallies after the Pulwama attack is false, as that allegation is based on a photo that is almost 4 years old.
