An image of a Canadian man taking a selfie with his iPad was cruelly photo-shopped into holding a Koran and wearing a suicide vest, prompting various media outlets to believe it.
The image of Canadian Veerender Jubbal spread like wildfire amidst the Paris terrorist attacks last week, and even appeared on the front page of one of Spain’s biggest newspapers as well as on a TV news segment in Italy, naming him one of the suspects in the attacks.
His response? “Let us start with basics. Never been to Paris. Am a Sikh dude with a turban. Lives in Canada. […] Learn the difference between me being a Sikh, and a Muslim. Cry in mug, while I use your tears to water my garden. I am valuable, and rad.” It is unknown who is responsible for photoshopping the image. Jubbal is considering to sue.
Do you think this is an act of cyber terrorism against Veerender Jubbal?
