Claim- there is an image viral on the Social Media which claims that the Traditional Religious Ritual performed before Chandrayaan 2.
This image is shared on Facebook by Avinash Gehlot Fan with the caption- "पूजा पाठ, वैदिक कर्म, कर्मकाण्ड को ढोंग ढकोसला कहनेवाले के मुँह पर जोरदार तमाचा लगाते हुए हमारे चन्द्रयान -2 के वैज्ञानिकों के समूह ने प्रक्षेपण से पूर्व पूजा-पाठ किया । साथ ही ISRO द्वारा किसी भी की प्रक्षेपण से पूर्व उसका प्रतिरूप वेंकटेश्वर मंदिर में भगवान बेंकटेश्वर को अर्पित किया जाता है ताकि प्रक्षेपण सफल रहे। सिर्फ भारत ही नही दुनिया भर के वैज्ञानिक अभियान की सफलता के धार्मिक अनुष्ठान करते है।अब कोई मूर्ख ही कहेगा कि वैज्ञानिक पूजा पाठ को नहीं मानते हैं क्यों? 😃😊😊 ईसरो का अभिनंदन"
Translation- "This is a slap on the face of people who do not believe in Puja and vedic karma. A group of Chandrayaan-2 scientists performed puja before the launch. In addition, before any launch by ISRO, a replica is presented to Lord Venkateswara in Venkateswara temple so that the launch is successful. Not only in India, but religious rituals are performed around the world. Now a fool will say that the scientist does not believe in worship, why? Congratulations ISRO"
This is an old picture of a priest carrying a traditional religious ceremony at the time of the Agni-V missile. In this picture it can be seen easily that it belongs to Launch of Agni-V missile not Chandrayaan 2.
Actually this picture is being falsely shared with a claim that it shows a traditional Hindu pooja performed for the successful launch of the Chandrayaan 2.
It was clicked by 'The Economin Times' and they mentioned about that launch with these words "India successfully launches nuclear capable 'Agni-V' missile for second time" on 15 September 2013.
This can be identified with a simple Google reverse image check. If you wants to check you may get easily with it. This will let you know that the image was taken at the time of test launch of Agni-V missile not Chandrayaan 2.
The Claim that the Religious ceremony was held at the time of Launch of Chandrayaan 2 is falsely shared. This is an old photograph which belongs to Before Agni-V Test Launch.
This claim was false that a Hindu Pooja Ritual held before the launch of Chandrayaan 2. The picture belongs to an old test launch.
