Image showing Sonia Gandhi with 'How To Convert India Into Christian Nation' book is morphed
New Delhi, June 01: An image of Congress leader Sonia Gandhi has gone viral on social media with a book titled 'How to convert India into Christian nation', the Holy Bible and a statue of Jesus placed on her bookshelf. However, we found that the image is fake and digitally edited.
Twitter user @noconversion first tweeted the image, which garnered over 1,000 retweets and 2,900 likes. The tweet has now been deleted.
The original image is actually published by the Congress in October 2020, where Gandhi addressed the people of Bihar on matters related to the state's economy and unemployment. In fact, a video of Sonia Gnadhi addressing the people of Bihar was also shared by Rahul Gandhi.
The image widely shared on Twitter and Facebook has received mixed reaction. While some readers wondered if Sonia Gandhi's hand was behind the conversion in India, some termed it as the BJP tactics to divert attention from GDP & Covid failure.
Let us have a look

It's a pity to see that Sanghis are so dumb !
Rather than putting all energy & resources in spreading fake news , had @BJP4India focussed on real issues & India would have progressed much more ! Shame Shame ! https://t.co/X5Hbg0H1wl
#sanghis Sanghis are a deadly combo; stupid & venomous. Photoshopped to change the book title into “ How to convert India into Christian nation”, but there never exists such a title pic.twitter.com/NCxm7PBWts— தமிழ் (@Nagarajanshri) June 1, 2021
Is Sonia Gandhi's hand behind the conversion in India because it reads books on how to make India a Christian country? pic.twitter.com/7eSNNsNVyu— Radhe radhe 🚩 (@VashishthaRadha) June 1, 2021
