Very sad news, yesterday in Karantaka Jain muni attacked by muslim youth …. No one is safe in Siddaramaiah’s Karnataka.”. When news like this starts going viral on social media, you know that elections are round the corner and the usual suspects are rolling out their polarization strategy.

The news of attack on Jain muni by Muslim youth was shared by several serial peddlers of fake news. Mahesh Vikram Hegde who is the founder of fake news site PostCard News and Gaurav Pradhan who has been caught spreading fake news on several occasions also put out this claim on their Twitter accounts. Both Mahesh Vikram Hegde and Gaurav Pradhan are followed by Prime Minister Modi on Twitter.

One of the first to share this information on Facebook was a person called Deepak Shetty whose post has been shared over 6000 times now.

This was also shared on the Facebook page of PostCard News.

Alt News decided to explore and found that this was not a case of attack involving Muslim youth. Jain Muni, Mayank Sagar had a minor accident when he was hurt on his shoulder after being hit by a bike. The incident happened two weeks ago in Kanakapura, Karnataka. He’s been reported to have recovered from the incident.

The news was reported by Jain publication, Ahinsa Kranti. The editor of the publication, Mukesh Jain, while speaking to Alt News confirmed the news posted on his website and denied the incident having anything to do with members of the Muslim community. Jain Muni Mayank Sagar had reached Shravanabelagola in Karnataka on 4th Feburary for the Mahamastakabhisheka. He was on his way back from Shravanabelagola when the accident happened. Ahinsa Kranti reported the issue on March 13th.

This is not the first time that fake and communally sensitive “news” is being shared by supporters of a particular ideology prior to elections. Social media users should be vigilant as many such fake stories about Karnataka will be shared in the coming days to polarize the voters.

We should not be ashamed of being an Indian, instead should feel proud for this. But we should definitely feel ashamed for being govern and driven by these soul-less and ruthless politicians.

It is not just a fake news, it is conspiracy and hidden agenda of those who want to polarize the country and disturb the harmony between the people of India on the basis of caste and religion. But they’ll never be success with their ill minded conspiracy, because we the people of India stand by our finest document and that is our Constitution of India.
