JNUSU President Aishe Ghosh is not faking her injury, viral photograph is a mirror image

Aishe Ghosh had injured her left hand in the violence that occurred on JNU campus Sunday, but the viral image shows the cast on her right hand.

New Delhi: A photograph that claims to prove that Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union President Aishe Ghosh is lying about sustaining a fracture during the violence that took place on campus Sunday, is doing the rounds on social media.

Ghosh was one of several students injured when masked assailants entered the JNU campus and attacked students and teachers during a peaceful protest against the recent fee hike.

She fractured her left hand but in the viral image, the cast is on her right hand. Many people on Twitter, including ABVP activist Milind Marathe and rightwing author Shefali Vaidya, shared the image and said that Ghosh was faking the injury. Vaidya deleted the tweet later. These tweets have been retweeted more than 3000 times.

If one types ‘odd even Aishe’ on Twitter then a stream of handles, which have shared the photograph, appear. The tweets claim that on an odd day the fracture is on one hand while on an even day, it is on the other.

Fact check

The viral photograph of Aishe Ghosh has been horizontally mirrored, which switched the fracture from the left to the right hand. This is evident because the two men behind her, who were originally on her left, appear on her right in the image.

This is not the first time that a photograph has been mirrored to raise doubts about an injury. In October 2019, former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had fractured his hand and his image was mirrored claiming that he was faking the injury.

Delhi Police Friday named nine students, including Ghosh, in connection with the violence on 5 January. The police has also registered two FIRs against her for incidents which took place on 3 and 4 January. Ghosh is accused of vandalising the university server room and manhandling and threatening the guards.

  1. Even a 5th grader knows, for the amount of bandage she shows, she would have had her size of both hand and head inflammation for weeks.
    These drama has no takers

  2. No Modi hater is talking about the real students who want to study. This is because they are workers of the propaganda mill being run by communists and Congress crooks.

    • Left wingers always asks the proof but they themselves never provide the proof when accusing others. Left wingers can fabricate stories but can’t fool mobile phone’s camera. At least the two pictures presented here are not mirror image of each other as there are noticeable differences between the two. In one image the fingers of the injured hand are wide open while in other picture fingers form the fist. The background is also different in the two pictures. Can the leftees provide proof that circulating picture is a mirror image by showing the original picture?

  3. Really? The point is who caused that injury to her? Her own people to make it look genuine? And since you seem to be a Know-all please enlighten us as to the average age of a graduate who finally completes his degree, average age of a PG who manages to get his certificate successfully and the Ph.D Scholar who completes his research to get his certificate? And while you are at it what is the average per year research papers published in reputed journals in India and abroad and total research papers published per year versus the no. of Ph.D students enrolled.

  4. There are students who have a future unlike these aish kind of students please help those students who want to study and are not interested in politics. You are helping the goons the print

  5. What sort of an idiot u r. And your media. If the image is really mirrored then why aren’t characters in the image mirrored or was the mirror applied for only human beings.
    Stop misleading you morons.
