Umrao has a record of spreading false and misleading information on social media, reports Laundry News.
In July 2021, Umrao falsely stated that 280 orphaned girls were pregnant at Teresa’s mission and their babies were sent abroad for trafficking.. He later deleted the tweet before it went live, reports said Alt News.
This month, he said that the “The Muslim community filed a petition in the Supreme Court against the performance of ‘Mata ki Chowki’ and other Hindu rituals in public places”. He ended his tweet with a question: “Should Hindus allow Namaz and Muharram on the streets?”
Tamil Nadu Director General of Police (DGP) Sylendra Babu said that the pictures published on social media showing foreign workers being attacked in the south are false. “Someone in Bihar posted a fake and sarcastic video saying that migrant workers of Bihar were attacked. Two videos have been posted and both are false videos,” said Babu.
