Beyond Google with Ajay Singh: How fake news on AMU deepened communal divide in UP

Editor's note: There are known unknowns, unknown knowns and known knowns. And then there’s all that Ajay Singh knows. Firstpost’s executive editor mines his decades-long experience reporting on politics to tell stories from the heartland that even Google can’t unearth.

During the peak of the Ayodhya agitation, a false news report was circulated in Aligarh. It was reported that the Aligarh Muslim University's (AMU) medical institute was selecting patients based on their caste and religion.

This edition of Beyond Google investigates into the AMU fake news matter and explores how this news heightened the polarisation that already existed in Uttar Pradesh.
