Kolkata Police registers case against Delhi-based rights activist Madhu Kishwar for spreading fake news

The Kolkata Police on Monday registered a case against Delhi-based academic and rights activist Madhu Purnima Kishwar for tweeting a video of an Islamic rally in Bangladesh and claiming that the incident took place in Kolkata.

Taking it to Twitter, the Kolkata Police on Monday tweeted, “#FakeNewsAlert A video clip from Bangladesh is being falsely claimed to be from Kolkata. Legal action initiated.”

Supreme Court lawyer and activist Prashant Bhushan retweeted the post of the Kolkata Police. “Great. These fake news & hate news spreaders must be brought to account. This lady is a serial offender,” he tweeted.

The video posted by Madhu Purnima Kishwar shows thousands of members of the Islamic community taking part in a massive roadshow in the heart of a city with a song playing in the background. The Bengali lyrics clearly refer to Bangladesh and several flags of the country and policemen in riot gear can also be seen in the 1.42-minute clip.

Kishwar tweeted the video on Sunday night and wrote, “In Kolkatta.”
