In yet another such task of misrepresentation of pictures on social media sites has been exposed. A Facebook post has created controversy across the country.
The Facebook post claims that Congress workers beat up a Hindu woman in Bengal. The Facebook post further reads, ” The only mistake of the lady was that she had chanted BJP and Modi Zindiabad at Congress rally.” Laxmi Orang’s photo was attached with the post representing it as an example of Congress brutalities in Bengal for supporting BJP. This Facebook post is widely shared in several groups on social media sites.
It was indeed an incident happened way back in 2007.Laxmi Orang, an Adivasi Girl, traveled from Japowari Orang Basti in Sonitpur to Guwahati as a member of the All Assam Adivasi Students’ Association. Laxmi Orang and her supporters were demanding ST status for Adivasi people.Laxmi was chased by a group of boys who stripped her naked. Laxmi was also viciously beaten during the incident.
