An image of AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi holding Lord Ram’s portrait along with other people is going viral on social media. Users are claiming that this is a recent image ahead of Lok Sabha election results. The post also emphasized that after Owaisi saw his defeat in 2024 Lok Sabha elections inevitable, he is taking support of Hinduism. The user wrote, “Jab lagta hai ki fat jayegi to ache-ache line par aa jate hain

However, Fact Crescendo found that this is an old image from 2018 which was altered and shared. In the real image, Asaduddin Owaisi was holding Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar’s portrait.
