Two notorious websites (postcard.news and theyouth.in) and their Facebook pages have been caught again, this time photoshopping and sharing an edited photo of Indian and Israeli flags on the roof of Israeli parliament building to exaggerate the Indian PM Narendra Modi’s visit to Israel. And the both captions say, “Proud moment for every Indian. First time in Israeli history, they waved an Indian flag on their parliament roof before arrival of PM Modi.
Yes, it’s a historical visit of an Indian prime minister to Israel, but the mass fake news producing websites and its Facebook pages are seems like happy to spread photoshopped images to exaggerate the fact to spread fake nationalism. According to these websites, Indian citizens will have to feel proud over a photoshopped Indian flag and a fake story.
