An image of Congress President Sonia Gandhi has been shared on social media and it allegedly shows that the bookshelf behind her has the ‘Holy Bible’, a statue of Jesus and a book titled ‘How to Convert India into Christian Nation’.

Twitter user @noconversion first tweeted the image, gaining 700 retweets as of this writing.

BJP Tamil Nadu Secretary Sumathi Venkatesh and BJP supporter Renuka Jain also shared the image. They later took down their tweets.

The image is also circulating on Facebook.

Many Facebook groups such as ‘Sudarshan News‘ with one lakh followers and ‘PMO India New Delhi*‘ with three lakh followers further promoted the image.

MORPHED PHOTO

If one looks very carefully, the image carries a watermark of the Twitter handle @noconversion on the left. This hints that the photograph is not genuine.

A reverse image search led Alt News to a video posted by Congress in October 2020 where Gandhi questioned the Centre on the farmers’ agitation and the hike in fuel prices. The video was also tweeted by Rahul Gandhi. In fact, many videos of Sonia Gandhi in front of that bookshelf has been tweeted by Congress.

Alt News compared a screenshot from the video with the viral image. We noticed that the books ‘How to Convert India into Christian Nation’ and the ‘Holy Bible’ and the statue of Jesus are not present on the bookshelf in the video. Thus, the viral image is morphed.
