An image of Congress President Sonia Gandhi has been doing the rounds of social media which allegedly shows the bookshelf behind her having the ‘Holy Bible’, a statue of Jesus and another book titled ‘How to Convert India into Christian Nation’.

As per an Alt News report, Twitter user @noconversion first tweeted the image, gaining 700 retweets as of this writing.

According to Alt News, the morphed picture was taken from a video posted by Congress in October 2020 that showed Sonia Gandhi questioning the Centre on the farmers’ protest and the hike in fuel prices.

In fact, Sonia Gandhi has shot many videos in front of that bookshelf.

Alt News compared a screenshot from the video with the viral image. They found that the books ‘How to Convert India into Christian Nation’ and the ‘Holy Bible’ and the statue of Jesus are not present on the bookshelf in the video. Thus, the viral image is morphed.

Upon reading this news, many were upset about the fact that someone would go to these lengths to defame Sonia Gandhi.

Here's how people reacted. Have a look.
