Ad Shared With False Claim That Rajasthan Govt Allotted 100 Cr To One Dargah

Rajasthan government has allocated Rs.100 crores for developing a religious circuit for different faiths including Sikhs, Jains, Hindus, and Muslims.

A screenshot of an advertisement in a newspaper thanking Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot for including Tanha peer dargah in the religious tourism circuit and allocating Rs. 100 crores for the project is being shared with the false claim that the entire corpus is being spent on one dargah.

BOOM found that the claim is false and that the Rajasthan government in the 2021-22 budget has allocated Rs.100 crores for developing a religious circuit by connecting places of worship of four faiths that are - Sikhs, Jains, Hindus, and Muslims.

A screenshot of the ad is being shared with the claim which when translated reads, "We Hindus are adding money from house to house for the Ram temple. And on the other hand, the Rajasthan government gave 100 crores rupees for one dargah. Later, the blessings of Hindus destruction will be sought in this dargah."
