New Delhi: Shazia Ilmi who until recently was in Aam Aadmi party is misleading the public by sharing a photo that supposed to show a secret meeting of AAP leader Aravind Kejriwal with the Imam mentioned above. Taking cue from her, the BJP troll are spreading lies on social media.
It just so happens that photo is from 2011 when Kejriwal visited Mumbai and met Muslim leaders of the city. Published first on Dec 26, 2011 on TwoCircles.net, a community news portal that focuses on issues of Indian Muslims.
Original photo is here:
As BJP Insider rightly explained in his tweet, unsolicited Bukhari support to AAP is to polarize Hindu votes in favor of BJP. Bukhari just like his father is old hand when it comes to using his Masjid for political favors for his family.
BJP and its leader Narendra Modi are not new to stealing photos and using it to spread their lies. In 2010, on the occasion of his national launch Modi’s Gujart government used a TwoCircles.net photo of girls from Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh to prove that Muslims in Gujarat are prospering.
