New Delhi: This Sikh man from Canada was left dumbfounded when he discovered that his image was photoshopped and was being circulated on the social media as one of the terrorists involved in the bomb and gun attack in Paris two days ago.
The image shows him wearing an explosives vest and holding a Quran. The image, which was actually photoshopped to make him look like that, immediately grabbed the attention of the social media users according to a news published in Zee News.
The Sikh man, whose real name is Veerender Jubbal, is actually not a terrorist and had no role in the Paris attacks.
A viral social media post which accompanied the image, reads: “One Islamic State attacker in the Paris Attack was a Sikh convert to Islam”.
The image was first shared by a Twitter handle @abualut8 with a caption “BREAKING”, said a report on the online edition of India Today.
The report further said that the tweet was deleted after the users questioned its authenticity.
The real story came to light when Veerender Jubbal posted his original image on Twitter. He defended himself saying that he had never been to Paris and is a resident of Canada.
