The shared image shows that Amish Devgan hosted his TV show ‘Aaar Paar’ by crediting Prime Minister Modi for pressuring US President Donald Trump to give an end to Bagdadi. It says, “Trump destroyed Baghdadi under Modi’s pressure.” It can be mentioned here that ‘Aar Paar’ show is aired on News 18 India (Hindi).

The Fact-Check by The Rational Daily

The Rational Daily fact-checked the image as it was a serious claim that may harm the reputation of individuals and also can create public chaos followed by certain issues. It is found that this is distorted, photoshopped and edited on purpose, that too intentionally.

The image is actually a photoshopped version of an image (Original) that was publicly posted by News 18 India about its TV Show ‘Aar Paar’ on the topic titled, ” Impact of Modi and Trump’s unity, Imran Khan surrenders on Kashmir Issue.”

The original Image

The distortion:

In the photoshopped image, Imran Khan’s image is replaced with Bakr al Baghdadi’s image. The title is also changed in order to create an impression and justify the connection between the images and title; collectively giving a different meaning. One can clearly see that in the photoshopped image the black (light) of Imran Khan’s coat is still visible.
