News Claim: Union Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri took to Twitter and issued a clarification regarding a faked image at Airport, written on a board, at an airport “Eating carpet Prohibited”  

Viral News Today: Listen people. This is a morphed image doing the rounds since 2015. It resurfaced in 2019. AAI had pointed this out even then. Let us all do a bit of due diligence before putting such things out. Fake images & morphed pictures don’t do any good to people who are posting them.

News Verification:  On doing research of the viral image we found that the Union Minister for Aviation Hardeep Singh Puri took to Twitter and clarify that the image is morphed and viral since 2015. Hardeep Singh Puri states on Twitter, “Let us all do a bit of due diligence before putting such things out. Fake images and morphed pictures don’t do any good to people who are posting them," said Hardeep Singh Puri.” 

Actress Shabana Azmi had shared the picture back in 2019 on her Instagram profile, it is still there.

The viral image was shared originally in 2015. Actor Arshad Warsi 

Indian Airport Authority took to social media and said, “Important Announcement from #AAI Since 2015, this morphed image shown has been doing rounds time and again. Requesting everyone not to circulate any such photographs without fact0-checking”

With so many people posting the same message it is tough to conclude that this message is fake. We keep this in fake category as it has been debunked by AAI and Aviation minister.

News verdict: False/Fake/misleading
