Never Spread Fake News
Many people have a bad habit of forwarding all the messages through social media. They do it not even realising the truth and the outcome it can cause to others.
Lies spread quickly that also spices added by everyone spreading it. That way a silly word will become a problematic one causing disharmony.
Moral Story – Rabbit And The Sound
A Rabbit was sitting alone under a tree. He was thinking about what will happen if the earth split apart now. At that time, a big fruit from the big tree fell on the ground making a big sound. A thought about the earth split was already in the mind of the rabbit. Hearing the big sound the rabbit feared it is the earth splitting sound and he ran.
Other animals saw the rabbit running very fast with fear. They asked what happened. While running the rabbit replied the earth is splitting. Hearing this, other animals including Elephant, Tiger also ran with the Rabbit.
On the way, Lion stopped the animals and asked who saw the earth is splitting. None could answer except the rabbit. Rabbit told he saw the earth splitting. As suggested by the king lion, all the animals including the lion followed the rabbit to the tree where he was sitting.
They searched every corner of the place but could not find the earth splitting. When no sign of earth split found, the rabbit said, he heard the sound only but didn’t see earth splitting.
All the animals searched again and found the big fruit lying on the ground under the big tree. They realised the rabbit misunderstood the big sound as earth splitting.
Moral – Never spread fake news without knowing the truth.
Fake News Spread Quickly
Stone once has thrown cannot be taken back. You do not know where will it hit and what damage it can cause to others. Just like that, words once told cannot be taken back.
You can say the easy word ‘SORRY’ as many times as you want. But that may not heal the would it made to innocent people. Hence use words wisely and do not spread messages without knowing the truth.
Technology Improvement And Fake News
Technology is improving day by day and within minutes your message will reach to unknown people staying very far. Remember, once you sent a message to a person you have no control over the message.
So, think and find the truth before spreading a message to others. Many fake messages look like real and even have a request to spread.
In social media, visual media and everywhere you can find fake news and real news added with spices. This is not a big surprise because they need hot and controversial news to promote their business.
Many people spread fake news. Not only fake news but also any news, images and videos which can create a problem for others and the community should not be shared.
If the real problems are pointed out and resolve that would have benefitted many people. Instead of criticising and spreading false allegations, pointing out mistakes and finding solutions will help many people to return from their mistakes and lead a better life.
