Amitabh Bachchan Sarcastic Comments in India

Other Versions

एक ऐसा सच जो मैने नही देखा.. ?

मैंने ISIS का विरोध करते किसी मुस्लिम को नहीं देखा है।
पर RSS का विरोध करते हुए लाखो हिन्दू देखे है।
मैंने किसी मुस्लिम को होली दीवाली की पार्टी देते नहीं देखा है पर हिन्दुओ को इफ्तार पार्टी देते देखा है।
मैंने कश्मीर में भारत के झंडे जलते देखे है।
पर कभी पाकिस्तान का झंडा जलाते हुए मुसलमान नहीं देखा है।
मैंने हिन्दुओ को टोपी पहने मजारो पर जाते देखा है।
पर किसी मुस्लिम को टिका लगाते मंदिर जाते नहीं देखा है।
मैंने मिडिया को विदेशो के गुण गाते देखा है। पर
भारत के संस्कार के प्रचार करते नहीं देखा है।

The picture in question went viral on WhatsApp and was also shared widely on Twitter among other social media sites.

About the ‘Amitabh Bachchan Sarcastic Comments’ in India

The Hindi language text accompanying a photograph of Mr. Amitabh Bachchan allegedly goes on to list some truth factors the actor has not seen (in India). It says, the actor did not see any Muslim opposing ISIS, but saw lakhs of Hindus opposing RSS. Did not see any Muslim giving party on Holi and Diwali occasions, but saw Hindus giving Iftaar party. Allegedly, he saw Indian flags burning in Kashmir, but did not see any Muslim burning Pakistani flag. He saw Hindus wearing caps and going to Mazars (mausoleum) but did not see any Muslim wearing the sectarian mark on forehead and going to temple. The message further adds, he saw media praising foreigners, but did not see them promoting Indian values. It concludes by appealing viewers to stop chatting for a minute and read and share the message.

Various Versions of the Text

Interestingly, we have seen online, the message appears in various versions, since at least 2015. The origin of the message is not clear, but as a matter of fact, many people have shared it. For instance, you can see the message below in a sarcastic note – carrying photograph of Indian comedian Johnny Lever.

Coming back to the claim about Amitabh Bachchan Sarcastic Comments, there are no credible reports to prove the reputed actor has said anything like that. Amitabh Bachchan is quite active on social media sites. After the post went viral, he took to Twitter and retweeted a message of his team clarifying the message is hoax.

Team SrBachchan called the message as fake/imposter creation and discouraged users and fans from sharing the posts. The matter was also reported to Cyber-crime authorities.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.
