Fact Check:

Certain ‘breaking’ story doing rounds on social media claims singer and viral sensation Ranu Mondal Demands Land for Church also in Ayodhya land. The messages accompany one of her photographs suggesting she’s a believer of Christian faith. No, the claims are not true – they originated from a satire publication.

Ranu Mondal Did Not Demand Church in Ayodhya

On 9th November 2019, Supreme Court of India gave the historic judgment settling the Ayodhya dispute. It ordered handing over the land to a trust to build the Hindu temple and also ordered the government to give an alternate 5 acres of land to Sunni Waqf Board for building mosque. The claim in question appeared on an article on the fauxy website thefauxy.com published on 10th November 2019.

The article titled ‘Ranu Mandal Demands Land for Church Too in the Disputed Ayodhya Land‘ mentions the historic judgment of Supreme Court of India settling Ayodhya dispute involving Hindus and Muslims. It mentions another major community of India; Christians felt left out and requested Ranu Mondal to speak on their behalf. And so, the article says, Ranu Mondal decided to demand some land in Ayodhya for a Church as well. Some online outlets also picked up the story thinking it is real, which is how it became popular.

The fact of the matter is – The Fauxy is a satire web portal and the content of the website is a work of fiction. Same is mentioned in Disclaimer on their website. Earlier, after the deadly terrorist attack in Pulwama, killing more than 40 CRPF personnel of India, the fauxy website published the below satire article.
