Aurat March Participant Carrying a Foul Placard: Fact or Doctored?

An image circulated on social media, targeting the Aurat March conducted on International Women’s Day on March 8, 2024. The edited picture contains vulgar wording.

The claim gained traction on social media, particularly on X (formerly Twitter), the picture was shared here, here and here accumulating more than 8K views.

Reverse image searching revealed that the shared image originated from March 8, 2020, in Karachi. The original poster displayed the message “Izzat nahi, insaan hun,” which translates to “I am not honour, I am a human being.” Subsequently, an altered version of this poster circulated on social media after the march, replacing “human” with “r*ndi,” a derogatory term in Urdu meaning ‘prostitute’. Additionally, this doctored image was previously debunked by Soch Fact Check in March 2020.


Our factcheck confirmed that an altered image of poster was shared to propagate against Aurat March. Purpose of such posts is to malign the image of Aurat March.
