Gandhi assassination

Claim: this photo was taken seconds after the murder of Mahatma Gandhi by Nathuram Godse, 1948

This photo is actually a still image from a 1963 movie Nine hours to Rama. Horst Buchholz, who played the part of Naturam Godse, can be easily recognized from the photo.

Below is a clip from a Cine magazine that shows the same scene in color:

This false image can be found from Wikipedia (in French): https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1948

There is also a fake photo “taken just before the assassination”. That is also a still image from the same movie. See SM Hoax Slayer for more details.
