In the original image, law student Kawalpreet Kaur is seen standing in front of Delhi's Jama Masjid, holding a placard that reads: "I am a citizen of India and I stand with the secular values of our Constitution. I will write against communal mob lynching of Muslims in our country. #Citizens against mob lynching."
In the morphed image, the message changes, beginning with, "I am an Indian but I hate India..."
The student had flagged the issue, saying the morphed image compromised her security. But after the forum failed to take down the image, Twitter suspended the handle.
In September, Pakistan's permanent representative to the UN brandished the photograph of a teen, her face disfigured by pellet gun bruises to face, as an example of "Indian brutality" in Kashmir. It was actually the photograph of a resident of Palestine, Rawya Abu Joma, clicked in Gaza in 2014 by award winning photographer Heidi Levine.
In her Facebook post, Ms Kaur said she was happy that the people of both nations stood up against the fake image. She also said it was not the first time the same photo had been morphed. It had been used by right wing portals and despite of her complaints, no action had been taken.
