Pictures tweeted from PM’s official handle show that Modi wasn’t wearing a skullcap while exchanging greetings with the Syedna, the head of the Dawoodi Bohras.
New Delhi: A photoshopped image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi wearing a Muslim skull cap is being shared widely on social media.
Commenting on the image, some people said Modi has “accepted his defeat” in 2019 Lok Sabha elections in advance.
The Prime Minister was in Indore Friday to address a gathering of Dawoodi Bohras, where he met the religious head of the community, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin.
However, in the pictures tweeted from the official handle of the Prime Minister, @narendramodi, one can see that Modi wasn’t wearing any cap while exchanging greeting with the religious leader.
It is always wonderful to meet Dr. Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin. Saint and scholar, his commitment towards nation building is appreciable. He is at the forefront of several community service initiatives. pic.twitter.com/qLUUJN6Lpw

One Twitter user, who identifies herself as a filmmaker, tweeted the photoshopped image in which Modi can be seen wearing the skull cap:
How did this happen?
Is Modi wearing the cap?
Is this an acceptance that he is losing 2019?
Neither Gujarat model nor vikas worked.
A Ram mandir also can't save him.@navikakumar @TimesNow

The same woman also shared the image on her Facebook account.
While she received more than 100 retweets, her Facebook post was shared by more than 180 users.
Her previous tweets show that she has a history of trolling Modi supporters.
Another Twitter account holder, who has more than 70,000 followers, shared the same image along with a photo of a 2011 event in Ahmedabad where Modi had reportedly refused to wear the skull cap (the tweet says it was of an event in 2013).
