A post is being widely shared on social media claiming that Pakistan PMO had tweeted wishing India on Father’s Day and PM Narendra Modi replied saying ‘Thank you Beta’. Let us fact-check the claim made in the post.
Claim: Pakistan PMO tweeted ‘Happy Father’s Day India’ and PM Modi replied ‘Thank you Beta’.
Fact: No such tweets were made by Pakistan PMO and PM Narendra Modi through their official Twitter accounts on the occasion of Father’s Day. The image in the post was made by an Instagram meme page named ‘comedyculture.in’. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When we looked for news articles and tweets made through official twitter accounts of Pakistan PMO and PM Narendra Modi on the occasion of Father’s Day, we could not find any. When the image in the post is closely observed, one can find a watermark of ‘comedyculture.in’. When we searched for comedyculture.in on Instagram, it was written on the home page as, ‘Building The Indian Meme Sub-Culture’. The same image in the post can be found in one of its Instagram status.
When the image in the post is seen clearly, one can see that the account @PakistanPMO is not the official account of PMO of Pakistan. In fact, when one tries to open that handle, it is shown to be suspended by Twitter. The ‘4d’ that is written beside the supposed reply of PM Narendra Modi is logically incorrect. ‘4d’ means that the person/account replied 4 days prior to taking the screenshot. But the image shows that the alleged post was published on Twitter on 20 June 2021 and this article is being published on 21 June 2021, hence 4 days ago is illogical.
To sum it up, neither Pakistan PMO tweeted Happy Father’s Day to India, nor PM Modi replied to it.
