BJP leader Shahnwaz Hussain is not the son-in-law of Murali Manohar Joshi


Many Facebook users are sharing a collage claiming that the couple seen along with BJP veteran Murali Manohar Joshi is his daughter and son-in-law and he is celebrating EID with them. Let’s try to analyze the claims made in the post.

The archived version of the post can be found here.

Claim: The couple seen along with BJP veteran Murali Manohar Joshi is his daughter and his son-in-law Shahnawaz Hussain.

Fact: The woman seen with MM Joshi is BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain’s wife Renu Sharma. But, she is not the daughter of Murali Manohar Joshi. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.

The rumour that Murali Manohar Joshi’s daughter is married to Shahnawaz Hussain is doing rounds since 2014. On doing Google Reverse Image search, the picture in the post was found to be the one taken during Eid-2018 celebrations at the residence of BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain. The woman seen in the photo is Shahnawaz Hussain’s wife Renu Hussain, but she is not Joshi’s daughter.

Shahnawaz Hussain and Renu Hussain had a love marriage and their story is covered by many media outlets. It is no where mentioned that Renu Hissain is the daughter of MM Joshi. MM Joshi has two daughters named Nivedita Joshi and Priyamvada Joshi as per BJP’s official website.

To sum it up, Murali Manohar Joshi’s daughter is not married to BJP leader
Shahnawaz Hussain.
