A prominent writer on social media, Tarek Fateh, is an active Twitter user with over 6 lakh followers. But on numerous occasions, the Pakistani-Canadian writer has been found publishing false information targeting Indian Muslims.
A matter of fact is Tarek Fatah failed to take down misleading tweets as the followers were made aware of the misinformation. In fact, in the latest tweets, he took an extra effort to make sure that his followers remain misled.
Tarek Fateh tweeted a video of Burqa-clad women dancing at a wedding, asking if it was from Shaheen Bagh. Fatah had tweeted the same video three years ago, twice.
Fatah tweeted a video of Burqa-clad women dancing to a Bollywood number. He asked, “Could someone confirm if this video is from the #CAA_NRCProtests at #ShaheenBagh or nor?” There is enough evidence in the video, which leads to the represent protests at Shaheen Bagh against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC). The group is dancing around a bride. Quite ironically, Fatah had tweeted the same video twice three years ago. Fatah quietly removed his tweet from August 2017. However, he missed doing the same for the video tweeted earlier in May 2017.
Muslims celebrated Congress’s victory by waving Pak flags
The “Pak flags” theory has been circulated by Fatah many times. Last year, when Congress won the assembly polls in Rajasthan. He stated that the victory Is celebrated by Muslims in the state by lifting Pakistani flags. Fatah later deleted the tweet.
The flags in the video actually represent the ‘Indian Union Muslim League’ and not Pakistan.

Tarek Fateh continually misrepresents events to throw a poor light on Muslims across the world, especially Hindu-Muslims. He frequently leads to misinformation that is sectarian in nature to get his point across.
