Morphed image of Chhatrapati Shivaji being shared as that of Tipu Sultan
New Delhi, Nov 23: An image of a warrior on a horseback with the sword drawn is being circulated on the social media with the claim that it is Tipu Sultan. The image was shared two days back on the birth anniversary of Tipu.
"Remembering 'The Tiger of Mysore', #TipuSultan who fought valiantly against British colonialism, on his birth anniversary today," reads the caption.
OneIndia has found that this claim is fake. The image is morphed and the original one is that of Chhatrapati Shivaji.
When one compares the two images it is clear that the one being shared with the claim that it is Tipu Sultan on the horse is morphed.
