  • Share


Visuals of dead bodies being cremated in a crematorium in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh are being shared with the false claim that visuals are from Gujarat. 

A post has started doing rounds on social media platforms showing several dead bodies being cremated at one time by people who can be seen wearing PPE kits. The image is being shared claiming that the visuals are from Gujarat. 

The post was shared on Facebook with the caption saying, "Dear People of Bengal, This is Gujarat ruled by BJP for last 25 years. Do you want BJP’s SONAR BANGLA? #Gujarat #BengalElections."

This post has reshared over 300 times at the time of writing this article. 

The post is also being shared on Facebook and Twitter with the same narrative. 

The truth behind the claim 

In our investigation, we found this claim to be false.  The viral image is not from Gujarat but actually shows visuals of a crematorium in Bhopal. 

With the help of reverse image search, we found this image carried in several news reports. The same image was carried in an article by Madhya Kesari dated April 13. 

In a report, NDTV also published a similar image of the same crematorium while reporting about the COVID-19 related deaths and Madhya Pradesh. "At the Bhadbhada crematorium in Bhopal, people say they have not witnessed such scenes since the 1984 Bhopal Gas tragedy," reads an excerpt from the article. 

Below is the comparison between the viral image and the one carried in the NDTV report. 

Images of the same crematorium have been used in several other articles regarding COVID-19 deaths in Bhopal, Madhya pradesh. 

In conclusion, visuals of dead bodies being cremated in a crematorium in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh are being shared with the false claim that visuals are from Gujarat.
