It seems, Ms in Dubai have no problem celebrating Sri Ram. No news about stone pelting.

Why in India?

Ram Navami was celebrated on March 30 this year. It ended up in violence in multiple states. An image of Burj Khalifa purportedly showing Lord Ram’s image projected on it is viral with the claim that the world has come to know the importance of the god, and Dubai has no problem celebrating the god. Some of the posts with such a claim can be seen here, here and here.

What is the truth?

When reverse-searching the viral image we found that the image is photoshopped. The results of the reverse image search show the stock photos on multiple websites.

The istock photo website is found carrying the original image with the caption “Dubai, UAE – December 28, 2015: Night view of Burj Khalifa tower. Burj Khalifa is the tallest structure in the world (828 m)”. This photo does not carry Lord Ram’s photo on the Burj Khalifa as seen in the viral image.

The Dreamstime website is also found carrying the original image with the same caption revealing that the viral image is an edited version of an image of Burj Khalifa from 2015.

We also searched for Burj Khalifa photograph with Lord Ram projected on it for Ram Navami, but ended up finding no such photos.


It is found from our search that the Burj Khalifa image with Lord Ram’s projection is fake and photoshopped.
