The Kolkata Police on Saturday arrested a person for sharing an image from a Bhojpuri film and sharing it as one of the incident of communal clash in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas.

Since being shared, social media users and fact-checking websites like Alt News have pointed out that the still was taken from a Bhojpuri movie called “Aurat Khilona Nahi” released in 2014.

 Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee attacked the centre and blamed the BJP, its ideological mentor RSS and other groups for the violence.

“Action will be taken for spreading fake pictures and videos. The law will take its own course. I congratulate the people of Bengal for not getting trapped by those spreading rumours and communal hatred. Peace has been restored,” she said.

Anyone sharing fake image to harm the peace is not at all accepted at any reason. Police and administration must act strong to stop such fake propaganda.

We call for peace and harmony at all stages and steps to make a strong India.
