What is the truth?
When searching with relevant keywords we found no such news on Mia Khalifa taking part in the wrestler’s protest. When reverse-searching the viral image we found it among a set of images tweeted on 27, April 2023 by Bhupender Chaudhary.
The images are captioned “In Solidarity with Our Pahalwans. Here at Jantar Mantar !” But the original image does not include Mia Khalifa’s photo.
A video of the protest when Jayant Chaudhary, Rashtriya Lok Dal party took part is found uploaded on Khabrain Abhi Tak Youtube channel on 27, April 2023. But the video does not show Mia Khalia joining the protests.
The Siasat Daily published the photos from the wrestler’s protest at Jantar Mantar. It carries multiple photos from the protest with Rashtriya Lok Dal leader, Jayant Chaudhary during his visit on 27, April 2023. But no photo of Mia Khalifa is found.
It is found that an image from the wrestler’s protest against Brij Bhushan Singh is morphed to falsely claim that Mia Khalifa joined the protests.
