FACT CHECK

Video from UP: Crowd is chanting ‘Haji saab zindabad’

“No such slogans of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ were raised in the procession, the slogan was ‘Haji Saab Zindabad’ and ‘Gram Sabha Pradhan Kaisa Ho. Haji Sab Kaise Ho’ during the procession.

A slow-motion video of News18’s erroneously broadcast earlier this month has been attached below. ‘Haji saab’ is clearly audible here as well.

Bahraich police had also put out a tweet rubbishing the claims that ‘Pakistan zindabad’ slogans were raised at the procession. “The truth is that in the victory procession, the supporters of the newly-elected pradhan only raised slogans of ‘Haji Saab zindabad’ NOT Pakistan zindabad. This is clear upon closely listening to the audio of the viral video clip,” the police statement said.

Indiafakenews found that the video was from Uttar Pradesh where a procession was taken out on the day of counting of panchayat elections and supporters chanted for a local leader.
