A video is doing rounds on social media in which a large number of women can be seen holding swords and raising slogans. It has been claimed that these women had rallied against the Shaheen Bagh protests in South Delhi.
It was also alleged in these posts that these women were opposing the protesters at Shaheen Bagh who have been on a sit-in against the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019.
The caption in Hindi read: “शाहीन बाग और घंटाघर की मुस्लिम महिलाओं के खिलाफ खड़ी हुई कट्टर हिंदू राजपूताना महिलाएं । जय भवानी भारत माता की जय”
(Translation: Devout Hindu Rajput women stood against Muslim women of Shaheen Bagh and Ghantaghar)
At the time of filing this report, the above post was shared by over 3,200 Facebook users.
When NewsMobile fact-checked the above video, we found that the claim attached to the video is FAKE.
On putting the keyframes of the video through Reverse Image Search, we came across a similar video on the official YouTube channel of The Times of India dated August 23rd, 2019 in which several women can be seen showcasing their sword skills.
According to the caption, the video is from Gujarat’s Jamnagar where 2,000 Rajput women gathered and showed their sword skills to set a world record.
Our Fact check team then investigated further based on this information, we came across the exact same video which was uploaded by a Facebook user on August 23rd, 2019 and he captioned it- #गुजरात मे 2000 से ज्यादा #क्षत्राणियों ने एक साथ तलवार बाजी करके #विश्व_रिकॉर्ड बनाया गुजरात #राजपूत_समाज.
Hence, the above information proves that the video is nowhere related to anti-CAA protest in Shaheen Bagh and is misleading.
