A post claiming that the top 5 rankers of NEET 2020 are Muslims, is being widely shared on social media platforms. Through this article let’s fact-check the claim made in the post.
Claim: Top 5 Rankers of NEET 2020 are Muslims.
Fact: According to the NEET 2020 results released by NTA, among the top five rankers, except for the 1st rank holder, the rest are Hindus. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
According to the results of NEET 2020 released by the National Testing Agency (NTA), except for the first rank, remaining four ranks among top five are secured by Hindus. Soyeb Aftab who secured the first rank is the only Muslim among the top five.
Through Google search of the names mentioned in the post, we found that Zeeshan Ashraf, Yasir Hameed and Sana Mir are Pakistani cricketers, whereas Sajid Mahamood is an English cricketer whose family roots trace to Pakistan.
To sum it up, not all top five rankers of NEET 2020 are Muslims.
