What’s the truth?

We ran a keyword search using the terms Anthony Fernandes, Priest, Hinduism, convert to find out if there are some articles from verifiable and reputable news outlets but there weren’t any.

So, we took the image and reverse searched it and we were taken to a Polish Website. The translated version of the article meantions, “The 28th season of “Father Matthew” will debut on TVP1 at the beginning of September. The crime series will be available to watch every Friday at a fixed time. Artur Żmijewski, who plays the main role, also this time undertook the task of directing some episodes of the series.”

The Polish actor Artur Żmijewski is playing the character of “Father Mathew” in the show “Ojciec Mateusz” running since 2008. This show is the Polish adaptation of an Italian show “Don Matteo” which first aired in 2000.

The article dated 05.08.2022 contains the image that is being used to claim that a Goan Catholic Priest named Anthony Fernandes has converted to Hinduism. It is quite evident that a still from a show is taken to create a fake story that a priest has converted to Hinduism. 

Conclusion

In our search, we find that the claim that a Goan Priest Anthony Fernandes converted to Hinduism is false. An image from a Polish TV series is taken to create a fake narrative that a Priest in Goa had converted to Hinduism.
