A viral selfie shared by Rahul Gandhi, featuring him and Sonia Gandhi displaying their inked fingers after voting, has stirred controversy due to a frame in the background. Netizens speculated it depicted Jesus Christ, but a fact-check revealed otherwise. Upon closer examination, it has been revealed to be a historic painting titled "Madonna Oriflamma." Created in 1932, this painting combines elements from East and West, depicting the Virgin Mary in the style of the Italian Renaissance alongside Buddhas in meditation. Additionally, it features the three orbs, symbolising the Roerich Peace Pact, as per Russian painter Nicholas Roerich's vision. The post aimed at urging citizens to vote garnered attention for the misinterpretation of the historic painting adorning the room of the Congress leader, falsely calling it a pic of Jesus Christ. Rahul Gandhi Attacks PM Narendra Modi Over His 'I Am Not Born Biologically' Statement, Says Prime Minister Works for 22 People (Watch Video).
