In a saga of fake news being spread amid corona spread, not many are kept away from this. Despite repetitive warnings and campaigns being conducted by various organisations, not many people are aware of keeping themselves away from spreading fake news.
There had been times when people, either, to gain some traction on social media platforms try to dispose fake news or the political party leaders, in an attempt to malign the image of other leaders, try to put up such campaigns. Such mis-informations have led to instigate various hate crimes across the country.
