News Claim: A message attributing to Rajan Gogoi, says. “If you can give divorce over the phone. So why don't you read Namaz on WhatsApp group”

Viral message on WhatsApp today & other Social Media claims:

যুক্তিসংগত কথা । কিন্তু কিছুমানৰ গা বেজ বেজাই‌ যাব কথাষাৰ শুনি । 


Reasonable. But for some, as a baby gets older, he or she will outgrow this.

अगर तलाक फोन पर दे सकते हो। तो नमाज व्हॉट्सऐप पर ग्रुप बनाकर क्यों नही पढ लेते ।


News Verification: Ayupp team found that the information attributing to the Ex-Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi is not correct.  The Ex-Chief Justice of India (CJI) has not made any such comments and none can be seen on his social media post like on Facebook or Twitter. We could not find any such official tweet by Ranjan Gogoi.

The Twitter handle of the screenshot has a photo of Ranjan Gogoi and the tweet asks Muslims to offer prayers through the WhatsApp group.
