A newspaper clipping is widely being shared on social media claiming that Joseph Hope, the Editor-in-Chief of The New York Times that if Modi is not stopped, then India will become very powerful.
The link to the post can be seen here.
NewsMobile did the fact-check, and found it to be fake.
We looked for the name Joseph Hope on The New York Times website, and found no person with this name in the organisation’s list of team members. We found no such opinion section published on the NYT website. We were also not able to find any news report published by the mentioned article in any Hindi newspaper.
On further searching, we found that the communications team of the New York Times had tweeted, saying that no person named Joseph Hope works for it. The tweet further said that Dean Baquet has been the editor of NYT, since May 2014.
Thus, we can ascertain that the viral claim is fake.
