A video is widely being shared on social media in which Indian army personnel are seen marching on the street, raising anti-BJP and anti-RSS slogans.
In the video, army personnel can be heard saying, “आरएसएस के लालो को गोली मारो सा** को, बीजेपी के लालो को गोली मारों सालों को, देश के इन गद्दारों को गोली मारो सालों को..”
(Translation: Shoot the people belonging to RSS, shoot the people of BJP, shoot the traitors of the nation)
The video is being shared with the Punjabi caption which reads as, “ਹੁਣ ਤਾਂ ਫੌਜੀ ਵੀ ,ਬੀ ਜੇ ਪੀ ,ਤੇ ,RSS, ਦੇ ਵਿਰੋਧ ਵਿੱਚ ਆਗੇ.” (Which translates in English as, ‘Now even the soldiers are against BJP and RSS.’)
NewsMobile did a fact-check and found the claim to be fake.
On closely observing the video, we found that no sound of vehicles was heard though the traffic was visible in the video. We also noticed ‘TikTok, @bacche411’ written on the bottom left corner of the video.
On changing the proxy and searching the TikTok account @bacche411, we found that the video has been deleted from the TikTok account.
However, further searching the keyword, “Desh ke gaddaro ko, TikTok” on Google, with a change in VPN, we found a similar video was uploaded by a Tik Tok user Sachin Dhiman on 17 February 2019.
In this video, the army personnel can be heard saying, “देश के गद्दारों को गोली मारों सालों को, जो नहीं है साथ में चूड़ी पहनो हाथ में” (Translation: Shoot the traitors of the nation, those who are not with us can wear bangles in hand).
In this video, one can clearly hear the traffic noise in the background.
PIB Fact-check had also published an article on February 10, 2020, to deny the viral claim. It concluded that the viral video was fake.
Hence, in the original video army personnel said to shoot the traitors but they nowhere raised anti-BJP or an-RSS slogan. The viral video is altered.
