CLAIM: Christian Pastor and his wife being humiliated by Indians in Uttar Pradesh, India

 

FACT: Fake. The image in question is from October 2015 when a Dalit family allegedly stripped in protest

 

A shocking image of a man and a woman standing nude on a street corner, with a child clinging to the latter as crowd stares at the trio has gone viral on WhatsApp groups. Several users also shared it on Twitter. The image is accompanied by a caption that reads: “Christian Pastor and his wife being humiliated by Indians in Utter Pradesh- India, for preaching the Gospel, they were made naked and march around town as punishment.”

 

The social media posts or the Whatsapp forwards that you probably read are fake.

 

However the image in question is from October 2015 when a Dalit family allegedly stripped in protest to the police’s alleged refusal to register a complaint of robbery. The incident occurred in Uttar Pradesh’s Gautam Budh Nagar. Five people, including three women, were arrested on charges of public obscenity. For the full context of the story, click here.

 

There are conflicting  reports of the involvement of the police in the incident. While some of the reports have quoted eyewitnesses who said that the police had disrobed the family others have claimed that they had stripped naked as a sign of protest.

 

BOOM looked at the videos released on YouTube and several news reports from October 2015 and have found it to be inconclusive.

Subsequently, the post was liked over 60,000 and shared 32,000 times on Facebook , and was found circulating on other social media platforms. In fact, the story had began circulating on Twitter in 2016 even before Breaking News- BN had posted it on their wall:

 

 

 

Although Breaking News-BN has taken down the post, the story still continues to circulate, particularly through Whatsapp groups.
