Protesting BBC's fake photograph created digitally

We the undersigned protest the fraud perpetrated by BBC by digitally
creating an image to show Hindus in bad light. BBC has faked the photo
of a Hindu man rioting in Gujarat. clearly shows that the image
of the man was imposed on a scene containing some burning material.
The fire is probably a garbage dump on fire because the people in the
background do not seem to be alarmed as they would be if it was a
scene of rioting.

This is completely contrary to all known journalistic ethics and we
demand an apology from BBC for faking a photograph in order to justify
the actions of Islamist extremists. BBC must also identify the
employee responsible for faking this photograph and terminate his or
her employment.
