A tweet by Home Minister Amit Shah is going viral on social media. In Amit Shah’s tweet, it has been written that he has had bone cancer in the back part of the throat. Also, it has been appealed that during this month of Ramadan, people of Muslim society pray for Shah’s good health.

India Today’s Anti-Fake News War Room (AFWA) found that the tweet going viral is fake. Amit Shah has not tweeted any such.

The viral tweet reads, “The people of my country, every step I have taken has been in the interest of the country, I have no enmity with any person of any caste or religion, due to the deteriorating health of the country for a few days. I am sad to say that I am not able to serve the public, I have had bone cancer in the back part of the throat, I hope, in this happy month of Ramadan, people of Muslim society also I will pray for my health and will soon be healthy and serve you. “

After watching this tweet carefully, the whole matter was understood. First of all there are many errors in this tweet. For example, in this caste is written “Jati”, similarly the structure of this sentence is also not correct – “I have no enmity with any caste or religion person”.

On seeing this tweet, it is understood that this tweet is longer than necessary. When we counted its characters, we found that there are more than 149 characters in it. Only 280 characters can be written in a tweet, if the content of the tweet is longer than that, then it is broken into two separate tweets.

Apart from this, the content of viral tweet is also not approved. Usually when someone tweets, the content does not come under his picture as seen in the viral tweet.
