PM Modi sharing the image of “All eyes on POK” is false and fabricated!

A YouTuber named Elvish Yadav used the modified phrase "All eyes on POK" in response to movie stars instead of "All eyes on Rafah." The phrase gained popularity and caused misunderstanding on social media.

A strike by Israeli aircraft on May 26, 2024, in Rafah, Gaza Strip, resulted in the deaths of at least 45 Palestinians, many of them were children. The city of Rafah is located in Gaza. Despite the widespread criticism, Israel swore to continue its Rafah offensive. 21 people were killed in another Israeli bombardment on May 28, Tuesday, in a camp for displaced people west of Rafah; at least 12 of the deaths were women, according to reports on May 29.

In the meantime, AI-generated images of the infographic “All Eyes On Rafah,” which is shared more than 46 million times on social media sites to demonstrate support in the wake of the Israel strike, are all over the internet.

The viral image shared shows the same template with a slight change in the infographics. Here we see the phrase “All eyes on POK” in place of “All eyes on Rafah.” This was shared as an Instagram story of PM Narendra Modi. You can see related claim posts here and here.

What’s the truth?

We started our analysis with relevant keywords along with a reverse image search on Google. This led us to an article by the AAJ Tak which carries the same viral image. The report was captioned as “’All Eyes On PoK’, Elvish replied to Bollywood by writing a post? Ruckus on social media.”

According to the article, Many Bollywood and TV celebrities are calling for justice for Palestinians in the wake of the attack on Gaza City Rafah, and they are showing their support by posting messages with the hashtag #AllEyesOnRafah. However, YouTuber Elvish Yadav wrote, “All Eyes On PoK,” in response to this celeb post. The post by Elvish has caused a lot of controversy.

This YouTuber’s post, which he uploaded in reaction to the movie stars who expressed concern over Palestine, is quickly becoming viral on social media.

Also, the article went on to add that, “Bigg Boss OTT 2 winner and famous YouTuber Elvish Yadav did not like the stars supporting Palestine. Responding to Bollywood and TV stars, Elvish edited their post ‘All Eyes On Rafah’ and wrote ‘All Eyes On PoK’.”

This indicates that Elvish Yadav, a YouTuber, originally shared this edited image on his Instagram story. And when we checked Modi’s instagram account, we did not find any such story. In addition to it, if Modi had shared this image on his Instagram story, it would have been covered by multiple media channels. However, no such reports were found.


All of this material makes it clear that the widely circulated screenshot that claims to show PM Narendra Modi’s Instagram story is a modified image without any supporting data.


As a result, we draw the conclusion that the widely circulated picture purporting to display PM Modi’s Instagram story with the caption “All eyes on PoK” is fake and fabricated, and there is no proof whatsoever that the PM shared it.

In actuality, YouTuber Elvish Yadav initially shared the image quoting ‘All eyes of PoK’ that became viral despite numerous edits.
