An image of a 2013 pro-Khalistan protest was falsely shared on social media stating that the image was taken from the ongoing farmer's protest.
In 2020, the photo resurfaced again and was shared in the backdrop of widespread farmer protests in India against three new farm bills passed by the central government. The photo has been shared several times on Facebook and Twitter in different languages. The captions roughly translate to "they don't want to repeal farm laws. Instead, they want Khalistan."
Hence, the image of Khalistan activists holding placards in the anniversary celebration of Operation Blue Star was misled and circulated as the 2020 farmer's protest.
