‘Journalist’ Ali Sohrab tries to pass off 2013 image of CISF jawan martyred in terrorist attack as image from Kashmir after abrogation of Article 370

As normalcy is returning back to Kashmir, the ‘liberal-secular’ forces seem to be in discomfort and have now resorted to putting pro-Pakistan agenda to discredit the Narendra Modi government’s decision to correct the historic blunder.

The Kashmir valley is returning to normalcy slowly, however, some section of media is hellbent on fear-mongering in the valley by sharing fake news to incite violence.

In a similar case, a ‘journalist’ Ali Sohrab tried to pass off an old image of two army men cleaning a pool of blood on a road as a recent one. He shared the misleading image implying that it was taken during the ongoing situation in Kashmir. He posted the image on Twitter with a caption #28DaysOfKashmirShutdown.

While the image is indeed from Kashmir, it is not a recent one. It is actually of security personnel cleaning up after a terrorist martyred a CISJ jawan in Srinagar in October 2013. According to the fact-checker – Facthunt.in, this image shared by ‘journalist’ Ali Sohrab is almost 6 years old. A simple reverse image check leads us to an article posted by the Indian Express with the headline “CISF jawan killed in militant attack in Srinagar”.

Indian Express photo from 14th October 2014 after a CISF jawan was killed by a terrorist.

This article was posted on October 14, 2013. It consists of a few images that show the aftermath of a militant attack in Srinagar and one of the images is the one tweeted by the user.

Ali Sohrab, by tweeting an old, unrelated image and connecting it with the ongoing situation with the Kashmir, deliberately attempted to indulge in fake news and push pro-Pakistan agenda. Taking a cue from Ali Sohrab, the image has been shared by several others on social media to claim that the bloodshed incident had occurred in Kashmir after Modi government abrogated Article 370.

Following the repealing of special status, some of the sections of media, political parties, the intelligentsia had hoped that violence would erupt in Kashmir valley as a mark of protest against the Modi government’s decision. As normalcy is returning back to Kashmir, the ‘liberal-secular’ forces seem to be in discomfort and have now resorted to putting pro-Pakistan agenda to discredit the Narendra Modi government’s decision to correct the historic blunder.
