Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said "A man was murdered by British Police in Broad daylight

Terrorist Sympathiser Jeremy Corbyn Tweeted today "A Man Was Murdered By British Police In Broad Daylight" at London Bridge today! The murdered victims don't matter apparently!
Facts Check Verdict: False

News Verification: A fake tweet claiming to be originated by British opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said "A man was murdered by British Police in Broad daylight," spoofing Corbyn's disapproval of how British police handled London Bridge knife attack on Friday, is not true.

The tweet was shared without no actual link to Jeremy Corbyn twitter account. 

Jeremy Corbyn has long been a supporter of terrorist especially in support of Pakistan. The Labour Party on September 25 had passed an emergency motion on Kashmir. It had called for its leader Corbyn to seek international observers and 'enter' the region to demand the Kashmiris' supposed right to self-determination. It drew flak with at least 100 British-Indian professionals condemning the stance of the party.

In the letter addressed to Corbyn, the British-Indian organisations expressed dismay that the party had abandoned a long-standing cross-party position on Kashmir as a bilateral matter between India and Pakistan. "In doing so, the party has sown the seeds of community disharmony in the UK," it said.

Jeremy also twitted earlier against India’s decision on article 370, he said earlier “The situation in Kashmir is deeply disturbing. Human rights abuses taking place are unacceptable. The rights of the Kashmiri people must be respected and UN resolutions implemented.”

“This is what you get if this man becomes PM. God help us,” tweeted one. Mr Corbyn’s real response to the attack expressed thanks for the efforts of emergency workers.

“Shocking reports from London Bridge. My thoughts are with those caught up in the incident.

“Thank you to the police and emergency services who are responding,” the Labour leader said.

We all feel hurt by the awful attack on London Bridge.

Those individual strands of compassion become the ties that connect us.

It is those ties, millions woven together, that make up the fabric of our society.

Hence the message circulating against Jeremy Corbyn is not true.
