A picture has gone viral on social media mocking supposed 'bhakts'. In the viral image, one can see a quote written on a wall in Hindi that can be roughly translated to, "Say from the womb, we are Hindus."(Garbh se kaho hum Hindu hain) A section on social media users is sharing this image saying that such 'bhakst' are illiterate who do not know the difference between 'pride'(Garv) and 'womb' (Garbh).
A Twitter user shared the image with the caption in Hindi saying, "Do some studies bhakts, its 'garv' not 'garbh'."
