Coming out in support of the ongoing wrestlers' protest in New Delhi, Uorfi Javed took to her Twitter handle and commented on a morphed photo of Sangeeta Phogat and Vinesh Phogat which was clicked after they were detained by the police. With the morphed photo now having gone viral, Uorfi questioned those who have been sharing the wrong image.
Uorfi wrote, “Why do people edit photos like this to prove their lies! Kisi ko Galat thehrane k Liye itna nahi girna chahiye k jhoot ka sahara liya jaaye (just to prove someone wrong, one should not stoop so low and take help of lies).”
She also tweeted a video from the protest which showed police trying to clear the site.
The morphed photo of Sangeeta Phogat and Vinesh Phogat showed them smiling inside a police van. They were being taken by the cops.
However, the original one had them with serious faces. The same pictures have been shared by Bajrang Punia on Twitter. She tweeted, “IT cell people are spreading this false picture. We make it clear that a complaint will be filed against whoever posted this fake picture.”
The wrestlers have been protesting against Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh for quite some time at Jantar Mantar. They demand his arrest for alleged sexual harassment.
On Sunday, chaos kickstarted at the site when the wrestlers and police personnel shoved and pushed each other as Vinesh Phogat, her cousin Sangeeta Phogat and Sakshi Malik began to breach the barricades. All three of them were detained along with others at the protest.
