Someone Photoshopped this Sikh Guy, and Now the World Thinks He’s a Paris Terrorist

This is one of the most outrageous things to do to a person! Someone photoshopped a selfie of a Sikh man and he made him to look like one of the terrorists from the Paris attacks. The fake photo went so viral that news media around the world have copied it to demonstrate the man as one of the suspected terrorists. BuzzFeed reports that this past weekend, GamerGate critic Veerender Jubbal found one of his self portraits altered to show a suicide bomb on his chest and a Quoran in his hands. In reality, he wasn’t wearing anything over his shirt, and the thing in his hands was an iPad that was used to take the picture.

A closer look at the photo reveals a number of glaring clues that the viral photo isn’t what it appears to be. Jubbal is a Canadian citizen who’s Sikh, not Muslim. The turban on his head is a Sikh turban, and the power outlets in the photo are North American outlets

This incident should be used as a warning to the media in order to always check their sources, as in the era of technology, anyone can counterfeit facts or even people's identities.
