Indians have been googling the fake NASA Diwali image in April 2020 after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 3 April 2020 address.

Many people through tweets posted fake NASA images after Modi's 3 April 2020 address to the nation.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on April 3, 2020, urged the people of the country to switch off the lights in their homes at 9 p.m for 9 minutes, to show solidarity in India's fight against coronavirus on 5 April 2020. People shared earlier images released by NASA which showed how India looked like in the dark. These images available on Google images are fake and were used as a meme to show how India may look on the night of 5 April 2020.
