Amid political crisis in Maharashtra, where no political party was able to prove their majority in the Legislative assembly election, eventually leading to the imposition of President's rule in the state, a picture surfaced on social media claiming that a Muslim organization named Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind wrote a letter to INC president Sonia Gandhi, urging her not to support Shiv Sena in forming a government in the state.

As soon as the letter surfaced online, many media houses from English News Channel 'Times Now' to Hindi news daily 'Navbharat Times' published story reporting the same.

The letter was widely shared on twitter by many users with the same claim. A twitter user named Amar Sharma shared the picture of the letter with a caption, "Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind writes to Sonia Do not support Shiv Sena. It’ll be very harmful for the INC India. Final decision makers have finally arrived"

The truth behind the claim

To put all allegations to rest, Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind put out a tweet that can be roughly translated to, " The viral claim that Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind wrote a letter to Sonia Gandhi, is false. No letter of this sort has been written by the organization."

The organization debunked all the claims, trying to propagate a misleading narrative. 

Conclusion: The viral letter claiming Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind wrote a letter to INC president Sonia Gandhi is fake according to the Twitter handle of the organisation.
