Placard Claiming Activist Threatens To Disrobe Herself Is Morphed
BOOM found that in the original photo, the gender rights activist can be seen holding a placard which reads, "Will not disrobe myself, Will not provide documents"
An image of a Kolkata based gender rights activist carrying a placard which says she will neither disrobe herself or give the documents during an anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protest rally has been mischievously morphed and revived.
The edited image shows the activist hanging a placard which reads in Bangla, "Will disrobe myself but will not give documents. No NRC CAA NPR". (Original text in Bangla: শাড়ি কাপড় খুলে দেবো তাও Dpcoments দেবো না, NONRCCAANPR) The same morphed image is doing the rounds on Facebook with netizens calling out the distasteful banner.
BOOM was able to identify the gender rights activist and found that in the original photograph, she was carrying a placard which read, "Will not disrobe myself, will not give documents."
BOOM also reached out to Paul who informed that the photograph was taken during an event of Feminist Intervention event in Kolkata in January, last year.
