The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) have seen huge protests across India.
A photograph of a protester holding a placard that says, “Hindu Hoon Ch***** Nahi” was shared by many. It hinted that the man is a Muslim posing as Hindu during the protest.
Twitter handle (@TheBiongHead) juxtaposed the man’s photograph with a screenshot of a Twitter profile of one Syed Mohd Yasir and wrote, “any similarity in face?”
We think it was a lot of hard work done to find a man who looked similar to the man holding the placard. But he couldn’t pull it off.
Two more twitter users who are followed by the office of railway minister Piyush Goyal, also circulated the post. The names of these people are Hemant Kamra and Amrita Malhotra.
Twitter user Syed Mohd Yasir was among those many who had tweeted the image of the man with the placard.

A public image of the man clearly shows his face.
A comparison of their facial features makes it clear that the man with the placard is not Yasir. Their faces are as different as a peer and a mango.
Other images of Yasir also show the distinction in facial features.

Moreover, Yasir had tweeted that he is not the man holding the placard.
Thus, an image of a man holding a placard that says “Hindu Hoon Ch***** Nahi” is viral with a false claim suggesting that he is Syed Mohd Yasir.
