PM Modi's Morphed Photo Lands Karnataka Man In Jail

Mohammed Mehboob, a jewellery shop employee, was arrested last night in the Koppal district for allegedly posting the photo on Facebook after a complaint by a BJP worker. He has been charged with “promoting enmity between different groups.”

The photo shows PM Modi touching the feet of senior BJP leader LK Advani, on whom the figure of Akbaruddin Owaisi has been morphed.

Akbaruddin Owaisi is the brother of Hyderabad parliamentarian Asaduddin Owaisi. Mehboob uploaded the photo as his profile picture on May 7. He has claimed that he did not morph the picture, his friends sent it.
