For the Game of Thrones fans, it was not difficult to recognize the picture of Arya Stark but there were many who fell in the prey of the recent picture of the GoT’s character which went viral on social media.
Arya Stark picture was being circulated on social media as a Kashmiri girl who suffered from the torture of the Indian army. Check tweets:
Kashmiri girl who became blind after she was hit by pellet gun, her brothers, father & mother were mercilessly killed, her sister was raped by Indian Army now begging on street of Srinagar.

But in reality, the picture of the character played by Maisie Williams was taken from season 6 of Game of Thrones where she was blinded. It is not a picture of any Kashmiri girl who according to a tweet became blind after she was hit by a pellet gun, her brothers, father & mother were mercilessly killed, her sister was raped by Indian Army now begging on streets of Srinagar.
The person who posted the picture is known for posting fake stories and pictures. His bio also claims that all tweets are for fun.
Academician Madhu Kishwar might have not recognized Arya Stark but did not fell for the picture.
This looks too filmy to be true. Would like @FactCheckIndia
