The first four rounds of the Indian election were held on April 19, April 26, May 7, and May 13. The next two stages are set for May 25 and June 1, respectively, with the vote count scheduled for June 4. The Indian seven-phase election has concluded with the fifth round of voting covering 49 seats in six states and two union territories, including Ladakh.

In this instance, a photo of Asaduddin Salahuddin Owaisi, the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President, posing for photos while facing the camera, has been circulated on social media. Here, he is shown alongside a few others, garlanded, and holding a picture of Lord Ram.

This post is shared stating, “When it seems that it will burst, even the best of people come in line.” You can view similar claim posts here, here, and here.

What’s the truth?

Using a basic reverse image technique, we discovered a Facebook post dated 2018 and began our investigation.

The post was captioned as “Dalits from Mochi Colony met AIMIM President Barrister Asaduddin Owaisi at AIMIM party headquarters Darussalam & thanked him for taking development activities in their area (Ramnaspura div Bahadurpura Constituency).”

This post contained the same widely shared picture of Asaduddin Owaisi, but interestingly, the portrait showed BR Ambedkar instead of Lord Ram’s painting.

For the reader’s convenience, we have also included a comparison between the original and viral photo of Asaduddin Owaisi’s images below.

All of this information confirms and affirms that the viral image depicts BR Ambedkar rather than a painting of Lord Ram. Also, the image is old from 2018 and has no links to the ongoing election 2024.


Therefore, we conclude that the widely circulated claim of Asaduddin Salahuddin Owaisi holding the image of Lord Ram is actually a digitally modified image.
