No, Assam unit of ABVP did not protest against the CAA: Saba Naqvi shared a photoshopped image

  • Share


Saba Naqvi retweeted a picture to suggest that ABVP, the right-wing students’ organization, was protesting against the CAA. The image shows ABVP members with the banner reading “We don’t support NRC, CAB, CAA”. The banner also used demeaning language for the Union Home Minister Amit Shah which read “Modi go back, Takla Shah go back (Baldie Shah go back)” and had pictures of PM Modi and Amit Shah with shoe marks imprinted on them. The banner read #ABVPAssam to assert that the Assam unit of the ABVP had carried out the protest against the CAA.

Here is the archived link of her tweet:

The picture was shared by a user named Kamran Shahid with a caption, "I swear on lotus you would have never seen this image. ABVP members in Assam opposing NRC Yes yes ABVP members in Assam opposing NRC".

The tweet has been deleted but here is the archived version of his tweet:

Saba Naqvi's tweet was also retweeted by a verified Twitter handle Gurmehar Kaur who has more than 160k followers.

Our Investigation

We did a reverse image search on Google who took us to a report by DNA that has used the original image which shows ABVP members with saffron flags and banners reading “We support CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act)”.

Varada Marathe, the National Social Media Convener of the ABVP also denied Naqvi's claim. She replied to her, “The world is indeed changing, Miss Naqvi. But when will you change and stop sharing photoshopped images?” She also quoted her past tweet in which she had shared the original version of the image.

The belongs to the JNU unit of the ABVP and was from December 18 when the ABVP members of the JNU in Delhi, along with a section of teachers came out on streets to extend their support for the Citizenship Amendment Act.


A picture of the ABVP supporters holding a banner in support of the CAA was photoshopped to portray that the ABVP protested against CAA. The original picture belongs to the JNU unit of the ABVP.
