Fact Check: Clipped Video Of Delhi’s Republic Day Tableau Shared With Misleading Claim

A short 10 seconds clip of Delhi’s Republic Day tableau is being shared on social media. In the video, Azaan being played could be heard.

This short video clip is being shared by many users with a communal spin claiming that Delhi or more precisely Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal favours a particular religion.

The Delhi Govt of Arvind Kejriwal has a tableau on Republic Day with AllahHuAkbar. Telling all the kaffirs that they’re worshipping “false gods.” Sultano ki Delhi,” the Facebook posts read.

The same clip was also shared by Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut (archive) with the caption, “Delhi na secular hai nahi tolerant, it’s been made clear with its very in your face Tableau, yeh sirf Badshah ki hai…. well in that case time to claim it, Jai Hind.”


NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found it to be misleading.

Firstly we checked the entire video of the Republic Day parade which was telecast live on national broadcaster Doordarshan National.

The tableaux of Delhi can be seen at 1:58 hrs of the video.

Doordarshan National also uploaded a separate video of the tableaux of all the states. In this video, the tableau of Delhi can be seen at 14:42 min.

The theme for 2021 Delhi Tableau was: Shahjahanabad: Redevelopment of Chandni Chowk. In the full video, prayers of other religions can also be heard in the Delhi tableau. Moreover, the side angle video of the tableau, places of worship of different religions can also be seen.

“The tableau reimagined inclusive streets with open public plazas, safe cycle lanes and accessible walkways. It dispersed with the sound of prayers from diverse places of worship in the area,” was the descriptive commentary for the tableau.

Moreover, we also found a report by news agency ANI which read, “The tableau also displayed the hustle-bustle of the market street enlivened with cycles, rickshaws, shoppers etc, interspersed with the sound of prayers from diverse places of worship.”

Hence, from the above fact check, it is clear that the video has been clipped and is being shared with a misleading claim.
