A photo of an alleged matrimonial ad that says that a fully vaccinated Roman Catholic woman is looking for a groom who has taken “both doses” of Covishield was shared by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor.

Tharoor’s tweet made it to the Hindustan Times newsletter.

The purported matrimonial ad is viral on Twitter.

It is widespread on Facebook as well

Fake newspaper clipping

The viral matrimonial ad was created on a newspaper clipping generating website called fodey.com. The website gives users the option to write a story, give it a headline, name the newspaper and change the date. We have juxtaposed the viral clipping (left) with a clipping manufactured by Alt News (right). If one notices carefully, the third column of the report has the same words. This is the part that is uneditable and confirms that the clipping is not genuine.

The same website was used earlier to target Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.
