Reverse Image Analysis:
Using AI Assisted tools we checked the image on different search engines and found that the picture is dated back to 6th October, 2014 and was shared by several people in 2014.
We found that this photo is not of current, but from the year 2014. At that time the Prime Minister of Pakistan was Nawaz Sharif. Moreover, Imran Khan’s Date of Birth is 5th October, 1952.
Our forensic analysis proves that Imran Khan’s old birthday celebration pictures are being circulated on social media, which claim that the Prime minister of Pakistan does not care about the GDP of the country and is busy celebrating his birthday, is propagated by Indian social media users. The posts are misleading and disseminating false information as the picture is dated back to 6th October, 2014 when Imran Khan was not the prime minister of Pakistan. Agenda of circulating celebration pictures with such captions is to portray Imran Khan as a careless and incompetent leader in world.
