Recently, the Spanish newspaper La Razon printed the snap of a Canadian freelance journalist Veerender Jubbal, with the caption ‘one of the terrorists’. The picture had been photo shopped to add what appeared to be a Quran and a suicide vest, and the image went viral on social media. In the original photo Jubbal appears to be holding an iPad, but the edited picture replaced it with the Islamic holy book, thereby wrongly accusing an innocent Canadian Sikh journalist of being involved in the Paris attacks.
When the edited image went viral, Mr. Jubbal posted the original as evidence that he had nothing to do with the murderous attacks in Paris that killed over 150 people and injured over several times. "I hope everyone has caught up with what is going on with me. I went viral due to a photo-shopped image claiming I am a terrorist," Jubbal tweeted, "Never been to Paris. Am a Sikh dude with a turban. Lives in Canada," he added
It is still unclear who was involved in the edition of the image and why. However, the Madrid-based newspaper later apologized for its transgression.
