A photo is being shared on social media where it is alleged that Congress supporters and members were offering cake to Mia Khalifa’s photo in celebration of her tweets supporting farmers’ protest.
In this particular tweet, with the use of highly derogatory language, it is claimed these are Congress workers in Kerala celebrating as Mia Khalifa tweeted in support of the “Khalistan movement”.
Even though reports and accusations of farmers’ protest being infiltrated by Khalistanis pour in, major farmer leaders have discouraged and maintained a distance from such participation.
As for the photo, a simple reverse search on Google reveals that the photo is originally of Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s birthday celebration. Indian Youth Congress supporters cut a birthday cake during celebrations for his 37th birthday of Rahul Gandhi.
It also did not happen in Kerala, as the photo caption reveals that this celebration took place in front of Sonia Gandhi’s residence in New Delhi on 19 June 2007.
Here is the link of the real photo.
Mia Khalifa, meanwhile, tweeted again in support of farmers, writing “Shoutout to the farmers”. She had earlier faced trolling over the same on social media.
