Fact Check: Does The Viral Video Show Recent Protest Against Baba Ramdev At Jodhpur Airport? Here’s The Truth

A video has gone viral on social media in which people can be seen protesting against Baba Ramdev. The video is being shared with a claim that people were protesting against yoga guru Baba Ramdev recently at the Jodhpur airport.

The video is being shared with a caption that reads, “जोधपुर में बाबा राम देव के खिलाफ लगे नारे, एयरपोर्ट से ही वापिस लौटना पड़ा! ये वो ही बाबा राम देव हैं जिन्होंने एक टीवी चेनल आपकी अदालत रजत शर्मा के शो चैनल पर कहा था कि मोदी की सरकार आएगी तो पेट्रोल 35रू में ओर डीजल 29 रु लीटर मिलेगा और कालेधन के खिलाफ भी प्रदर्शन किया था..” (English translation: Slogans raised against Baba Ram Dev in Jodhpur, he had to return from the airport itself! This is the same Baba Ramdev who said on a TV channel, Aapki Adalat Rajat Sharma’s show that if Modi’s government comes, petrol will be available at Rs. 35 and diesel will be Rs. 29 litre and also protested against black money.)

NewsMobile did a fact-check and found the claim to be misleading.

On breaking the video into multiple keyframes and doing a Google Reverse Image Search, we found the same video was uploaded by a YouTube channel, Bharat Adda India on October 1, 2017, with the title that read, “Baba Ramdev faced Protest in Jaipur, Demands Recovery of Black Money.”

Taking a cue from the above video, we searched with keywords and found out that a Facebook page AAP Express had also shared a video of the protest against Baba Ramdev on September 28, 2017. The post also shared a link to JanSatta news.

JanSatta also reported about the protest against Baba Ramdev at Rajasthan airport on September 28, 2017. According to the report, people raised slogans against Baba Ramdev on the issue of black money.

Navoday Times also reported about the incident in 2017.

Hence, we can conclude that an old video of people protesting against Baba Ramdev at Jaipur airport has gone viral with a misleading claim that it shows a recent protest against him at Jodhpur airport.
