फैक्ट चेक / गुजरात के शहरों में हेलमेट पहनना नहीं रह गया अनिवार्य? अहमदाबाद के ट्रैफिक डीसीपी ने बताई सच्चाई

Is it necessary to wear helmet in gujarat

  • क्या फेक : गुजरात में महानगरपालिका के दायरे में अब हेलमेट पहनना अनिवार्य नहीं
  • क्या सच : यह खबर फेक है। ऐसा कोई नियम वहां लागू नहीं

फैक्ट चेक डेस्क. सोशल मीडिया पर एक पुराना मैसेज अभी वायरल हो रहा है। खासतौर से फेसबुक पर वायरल हो रहे इस मैसेज में लिखा है कि गुजरात में जो हेलमेट चेकिंग चल रही थी, उसे कोर्ट ने खारिज कर दिया है। अब यहां कोई पुलिस कर्मी हेलमेट का चालान नहीं काट सकेगा। भास्कर को एक पाठक ने यह मैसेज भेजा और इसकी सत्यता जानना चाही। हमारे इन्वेस्टिगेशन में यह खबर फेक निकली।
क्या वायरल
  • गुजरात में अभी तक जो हेलमेट चेकिंग चल रही थी उसे कोर्ट ने खारिज कर दिया है।
  • सागरकुमार जैन के याचिका के मुताबिक महानगरपालिका के दायरे के अंदर हेलमेट का अनिवार्य नहीं होगा जिस रास्ते को राज्य मार्ग या हाईवे का दर्जा प्राप्त हुआ है वहां पर हेलमेट पहनना अनिवार्य होगा।
  • इसके बाद अगर कोई भी ट्रैफिक वाला यह पुलिस वाला आपसे हेलमेट क्यों नहीं पहना पूछता है तो आप उसे कह सकते हो कि मैं महानगरपालिका नगरपालिका पंचायत समिति शहर की हद में हूं आप सभी को यह जानकर खुशी होगी।
  • इस मैसेज को ज्यादा से ज्यादा शेयर करें ताकि लोगों को भी पता चले ...!!
क्यों फेक
  • जब हमने इस मैसेज को गूगल पर सर्च किया तो पता चला कि इसे 4 अप्रैल 2016 को फेसबुक पर एक पेज पर शेयर किया गया था।
  • यह आदेश न ही कोर्ट ने दिया है और न ही पुलिस को ऐसे कोई ऑर्डर मिले हैं।
  • इस बारे में हमने सीधे ट्रैफिक डीसीपी (अहमदाबाद) तेजस कुमार पटेल से बात की। उन्होंने बताया कि यह खबर झूठी है। ऐसा कोई आदेश कोर्ट द्वारा नहीं दिया गया है।
  • गुजरात में कोई भी व्यक्ति बिना हेलमेट के ड्राइविंग करता है, तो पुलिस नियमानुसार कार्रवाई करेगी।

  • साफ है कि वीडियो को एडिट करके स्लो कर दिया गया है, जिससे लग रहा है कि वीडियो शूट करते समय केजरीवाल नशे में थे। पड़ताल में वायरल दावा झूठा साबित हुआ।

  • मोदी और विडोडो की वायरल तस्वीर मई 2018 की है। पीएम मोदी पहली बार इंडोनेशिया दौरे पर गए थे, इसी दौरान राष्ट्रपति जोको विडोडो ने उन्हें बताया था कि उनके पोते का नाम मोदी के नाम से मिलता है। देश के कई मीडिया संस्थानों ने यह खबर पब्लिश की थी।
  • जोको के पोते का जन्म मार्च 2016 में हुआ था। पोते की जन्म की खबर को इंडोनेशिया की मीडिया के साथ-साथ इंटरनेशनल मीडिया ने भी कवर किया था।
  • जकार्ता पोस्ट सहित किसी भी अन्य मीडिया कवरेज में मोदी के नाम पर बच्चे का नाम रखे जाने जैसी कोई बात नहीं कही गई है। खबर के अनुसार जोको के बेटे गिबरन ने बताया कि बेटे का नाम 'जैन एथस श्रीनरेन्द्र (Jan Ehtes Srinarendra)' रखा गया है। जैन का अर्थ है 'बहुत', एथेस का अर्थ है 'चतुर या निपुण' और श्रीनरेन्द्र का अर्थ है 'बुद्धिमान नेता या लीडर।'
''

  • न्यूज एजेंसी एएनआई ने भी मोदी और जोको की मुलाकात के बारे में पब्लिश की गई खबर में मोदी के नाम पर बच्चे का नाम होने की कोई बात नहीं लिखी है।

हमारी पड़ताल से साफ है कि इंडोनेशिया के राष्ट्रपति के पोते का नाम पीएम मोदी के नाम से मेल खाता है। लेकिन जोको विडोडो द्वारा मोदी के नाम पर अपने पोते का नाम रखने का दावा झूठा है।

Did This Woman Really Get Divorced Over A Silly Photo?
Weird 3/20/17





A photo circulating the internet has people in shock after a husband allegedly divorced his wife after carefully analyzing the picture. At first glance, the photo in question appears to have nothing out of the ordinary to it. However, after taking a closer look, everything is not what it seems. By the looks of things, it appears that the woman on the bed has something, or someone, she is trying to hide.

featured-image.jpg





The story goes on to say that after spotting another man hiding under his wife’s bed, the husband promptly divorced the woman for cheating. Some people could not believe the husband caught the subtle eye in the corner, while others were skeptical about the authenticity of the photo.

Snopes decided to take on the mystery to determine if the photo was real or in fact a hoax. It was quickly discovered that the photo has been shared many times on social media sites using the photo as an “I spy” game, asking users to share the post after they spot what doesn’t belong, with no mention of the story.
Additionally, they found that the photo has been published online several times over the years with a variety of stories, including on two different Chinese sites, Jdduanzi and Liuxing. The photo was accompanied with a darker take on the story. In this version, instead of divorce, the husband actually killed the wife over the photo. The story ends with a chilling, “Can you see why he killed his wife.” An internet search of the story for an official article about the murder or divorce came up dry, leading to the conclusion that the story was probably fake.
Story aside, the picture, in general has had people scratching their heads. For starters, the young woman in the photo appears a little young to be married, and her twin bed resembles that of a dorm room, not the room of a married woman. Of course, she wouldn’t be the first college student to be married if that was the case, but something about the story still seemed off.
002-underbed-1489685454988.jpg



A Facebook post, by an assumed family member of the girl in the photo, seems to shed light on the situation declaring it not at all what it has been portrayed to be. A woman claiming to be the girl in the photo’s second cousin says the person pictured is in fact 16-years-old, not married, and the photo was simply a joke that went viral. The girl and her friends had no idea posting the photo online would result in it taking on a life of its own, resulting in so many crazy stories and scenarios.
So was someone under her bed, or was the face added to the photo as a joke? While the full story of this photo is still somewhat a mystery, it is probably safe to say that no marriages or lives were destroyed due to the person under the bed.

‘Man Hiding Under Bed’ Photo
Rumor: A man divorced his wife after he examined a photograph of her and spotted a man hiding under her bed.

Origin
Example: [Collected via email, January 2015]
There’s supposedly a man hiding in this picture under the bed. Is this for real or a waste of one’s internet time?
Origins: On 24 January 2015, the web site ViralNova published a seemingly innocent photograph of a young woman sitting on her bed.
The image was accompanied by a supposed backstory, republished below, as well instructions for the viewer to search for something askew (Hint: The corner of a man’s face can be seen between the mattress and the bed frame):
After coming home from being away for 20 days, a husband took this photo of his wife. It seemed innocent, maybe even sweet.
However, he took a closer look and saw something that would change their lives forever. Do you see it?
A man, whom the wife was cheating with, was hiding under the bed the entire time. The husband didn’t see it until he looked at the photo again.
The husband, after confronting her with proof beyond the shadow of a doubt, filed for divorce. No word on what came of The Man Under The Bed. But he should probably not peek next time.
manunderthebed

However, this photograph has been circulating around the Internet accompanied by a number of different explanations and backstories, including versions posted to the Chinese-language sites Jdduanzi and Liuxing with a slightly different story:
A man killed his wife after returning from vacation. When the police asked him why he killed his wife, he showed him this photo. Can you see why he killed his wife?
One common element to nearly all repostings of this image is that the viewer is instructed to search for the man hiding under the bed:
Don’t say anything… Just RT when you see it pic.twitter.com/iMad1LxkdN
— Funny Pictures (@TopTwitPics) July 4, 2014
The stories that are most commonly circulated in tandem with this photograph are almost certainly false, given that no one has turned up any official report or news story linking this image to a real-life divorce and/or murder, the narratives attached to the image have changed several times over, and the scenario pictured here (i.e., a young girl in a twin bed) is not one that generally corresponds to a depiction of a married woman.
Most likely this is just an innocent photograph of teenage girl which someone has digitally manipulated to add a peering face, or perhaps a picture of a girl who was being pranked by some friends, with one of those “friends” having a camera at the ready to record the moments just before and after a hidden lurker popped up to scare the daylights out of her. We haven’t been able to verify if yet, but a Facebook poster who asserts she is related to the girl in the picture has stated that the photograph was indeed a prank:

CLAIM
A photo of Amritsar’s Golden Temple has gone viral with a claim that it shows the famous gurudwara on Diwali evening, lit up by sky lanterns instead of fireworks.
The message being shared with the photo is the following: “Absolute heaven...Golden temple Amritsar..no fire works but lanterns in the sky reflected in the sarovar surrounding the gurudwara.. Amazing view...(sic)”

The photo was being shared widely on Twitter in the last few days, in the run up to Diwali, which was on 27 October.

The photo was also being shared on Facebook with the same claim.

WHAT’S THE TRUTH?
The viral photo is not real and has been photoshopped to make it seem that there are sky lanterns over Golden Temple, lighting it up. The photo has been created by an artist who has publicly stated that the image is a piece of art and does not claim to show the reality.
Also Read : In Pics: Ayodhya Makes World Record As 6 L Diyas Light Up Diwali

WHAT WE FOUND OUT
On conducting a reverse image search on the viral photo, we came across the original photo on a website. There are no sky lanterns in this photo.
According to the text along with the photo, it was captured on a particular Diwali, when Golden Temple was “draped with lights.”

Here is a comparison of both the photos together.
In the viral photo (on the left), we can see three people at the edge of the sarovar, illuminated by a bright light. The same three people can be seen in the original photo, in the same position.
(Photo: Altered by The Quint)
In the below comparison, we can see the same spot in the midst of the crowd which is lit up by diyas or candles. Moreover, the same man in a blue shirt and black trousers can be seen at the edge of the photo.
(Photo: Altered by The Quint)
Therefore, it is clear that there were no sky lanterns over Golden Temple on the day this photograph was captured. Moreover, the article on the website is dated to September 2016, making it clear that it does not even show Golden Temple on Diwali 2019.
Next, since the image of the lanterns were reminiscent of a popular stock image or wallpaper, we ran a search for photos of ‘sky lantern wallpaper’. As a result, we came across multiple photos which resembled almost exactly the lanterns and their placement in the viral photo.

On continuing this search, we were led to a number of Getty photos of the same kind, which explained that this scene was from a festival held in Thailand, called Yi Peng Sky Lantern Festival, a festival held in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand on a full moon in the second month of the Lanna calendar, usually around November.
(Photo Courtesy: Screenshot/Getty Images)
It is clear that one such image has been used to edit the original photo of the Golden Temple to create the one which has now gone viral.
Moreover, on looking carefully at the viral photo, it is possible to see a watermark which says that the creator of the image is a person by the name of Navkaran Brar. Brar had tweeted a similar photo in 2018, with Diwali wishes. In this photo too, the lanterns and their reflection can be seen.

We checked his Instagram profile as well and found that he had recently re-shared the photo as part of a giveway contest. In the caption along with the post, he makes it clear that this is a piece of art and not an original photo.
(Photo: Screenshot/Instagram)
As additional proof that this is not real, here’s his tweet from October 2017 when the photo first went viral, taking credit for the artwork.

The students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) have been up in arms against the new draft hostel manual which, they allege, has regressive provisions for curfew timings, fee hikes and dress code. However, the administration announced a partial roll back in the hostel fee after they failed to pacify the students.
CLAIM
Amidst the ongoing protest, an image is now being circulated on social media with the claim that it shows the current hostel fees of JNU.
The list mentions advance mess fee as Rs 750, annual charge for newspaper as Rs 15, crockery, utensils charged at Rs 50, among others.
(Photo Courtesy: Facebook/Screengrab)
(Photo Courtesy: Twitter/Screengrab)
Another image that is being circulated, claims that the charge for single room rent is Rs 7200. While the mess security rate is allegedly Rs 12,000.

TRUE OR FALSE?
The hostel charges mentioned in the image are wrong. The varsity’s official statement released on Wednesday, 13 November, listed out the charges for different hostel components. These charges are not in line with the ones mentioned in the image being shared on social media.
Also Read : Are These East India Company Coins with Hindu Gods On Them? Nope
WHAT WE FOUND OUT
A press release issued by JNU on Wednesday, mentioned the rules that will not be included in the hostel manual and listed out the changes made in the hostel fees.
As per the statement, the earlier proposal that students should be back in their hostels by 11 pm or 30 minutes after the closing of library (whichever is later), will not be included in the new hostel manual.
Further, the press releases stated that the new hostel manual will not have any mention of “all residents and guests should come to the dining hall appropriately dressed.”

Following widespread protests for hostel fees hike, JNU’s Executive Committee announced its partial rollback on Wednesday. The new charges are not in accordance with the ones mentioned in social media posts.
For instance, the posts claim that Mess Advance is charged at Rs 750, while the statement mentions that after revision, it is Rs 5,500, instead of Rs 12,000.
Even the charge for newspaper is Rs 50 per year and not Rs 15, as claimed. Similarly, for crockery, utensils, the official charge is Rs 250 per year and not Rs 50 as claimed by social media posts.

On Monday, thousands of JNU students clashed with police outside the campus as they raised their voices against the administration's "anti-student" policy.
The students wanted to march to the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) auditorium, about three kilometres away from the campus in south Delhi, where Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu was addressing the university's convocation. But they were stopped a short distance away.

(Update: This article was first published on 14 November and has been updated in the light of a different set of false JNU charges being shared on social media.)

The detractors of Kanwal and India Today TV dug out the clip after the news channel did a sting operation that alleged that some members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) were behind the recent Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) violence.

The ABVP, an affiliate of the Bhartiya Janata Party, cast aspersions on the sting claiming that the students shown in the video were not members of the organisation. Since then, a war of words between Kanwal and ABVP/BJP people has been raging on social media platforms.
