Malaysia Bersih 3.0 Fake Picture

On 28 April, 2012, thousands of Malaysian protesters rallied for clean and fair elections in the event called Bersih 3.0. Bersih means clean. Police shut down much of the city centre and closed off the historic Merdeka (Independence) Square in Kuala Lumpur (KL) with barriers and barbed wire, enforcing a court order that the protesters should not enter the symbolically important site.

It was supposed to be a peaceful rally but it was said that some hundreds of protesters tried to go beyond the barricades and police retaliated with teargas and chemical-laced water. More than 400 people were arrested, compared to the previous protest at the count of 1,600.

While many supporters of the Bersih event did not join in the protest due to various reasons such as fear, most of them were circulating photos and videos online to encourage and compliment those who were brave enough to join in physically. However, we soon found a grand photo surfacing online, which could have boosted the confidence of the Bersih event a lot, although it was edited.

We take for example, the portion at the bottom right side. After zooming in, you will see the image below.

The image is of course not sharp. However, looking at the intersection portion between the building and the crowd, you can see some blur effect. Many other indications have shown that the picture is a fake one.

We would label the image as a prank.

Anyway, some comments on the photo in Facebook...
