Self-proclaimed journalist Abhisar Sharma is an embarrassment. He has now moved on from making ‘investigative videos’ for train tragedies to propagate the ‘headlight theory’ to using morphed images of journalists from other media houses to peddle fake news and narrative. When he is caught, he quietly deletes the video and uploads an edited one without any disclaimer.
In his show on HW Network, a platform used by molestation accused Vinod Dua to propagate fake news as well, Abhisar Sharma edited images of the content of a show to target Aaj Tak journalist Chitra Tripathi. He posted a propaganda video on Tuesday to question the silence of some of the journalists after another controversial journalist and hero of Indian ‘liberal-secular’ media – Ravish Kumar won the Ramon Magsaysay award.
Questioning their integrity, Abhisar Sharma put out an image of a show hosted by Chitra Tripathi in which it can be seen that the title card of the show has been carefully edited out by Abhisar Sharma to convey that the anchor credited Prime Minister Modi for the success of Chandrayaan-2 mission. However, in reality, there was no reference to PM Modi in the show.
A Twitter user Bala(@erbmjha) has shared the video on social media after which Abhisar Sharma deleted the original video and uploaded an edited version.

Chitra Tripathi’s show on Aaj Tak had a title “Ab Chaand Hamara Mutti Mein (Now, the moon is within our reach)”. But, Abhisar Sharma, who has an inherent hatred towards Prime Minister edited out the title part to “Ab Chaand Modi ki Mutti Mein (Now, the moon is within Modi’s reach) to target Chitra Tripathi.
Despite resorting to peddling outright lies on other journalists, Abhisar Sharma has not apologised yet for spreading fake news. However, he has silently deleted the original video from the social media platforms while uploading it again with editing out the fake news part where he had foul-mouthed other journalists for doing their job.
It seems that propagating fake news has become an inevitable part of self-proclaimed ‘journalist’ Abhisar Sharma’s livelihood. It is not the first time that he has been caught spreading fake news.
Recently, after the historic abrogation of Article 370, ‘journalist’ Abhisar Sharma had provided fuel to Pakistan propaganda machinery. A Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir had shared a video where Abhisar Sharma had complained about few jokes circulating on social media after the abrogation of Article 370.
Abhisar Sharma, who claims to be a journalist has been known for his hatred towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Sharma has been caught several times on social media for indulging in false propaganda and false news. During his association with leftist propaganda website The Wire, Sharma had ‘investigated’ the tragic Amritsar Train accident. He had resorted to spreading fake news after he had said that the train’s top headlight was not functioning which had resulted in the tragic accident which had claimed 60 lives. However, after the glaring loopholes in his absurd theory, The Wire quietly deleted the video.
