Fact Check: 2019 Video From J&K Viral As BJP Flags Waved In Pakistan

A video is doing rounds on social media with the claim that BJP flags were waved in  Balochistan, Pakistan.

Facebook users are sharing the video with the caption in Malayalam, “ബിജെപി പതാക പാകിസ്ഥാനിൽ…….* *പാകിസ്ഥാനിലെ ബലൂചിസ്ഥാനിൽ മോദി അധികാരത്തിൽ വന്ന് തങ്ങൾക്ക് സ്വാതന്ത്ര്യം നേടി തരും എന്ന് വിശ്വസിക്കുന്ന ജനങ്ങളുടെ ആഘോഷം….”

FACT CHECK

NewsMobile did a fact check and found that the video was shot in Anantnag, Jammu and Kashmir.

On putting keyframes of the video through Reverse Image Search, we found the original video on BJP Jammu and Kashmir’s official Twitter handle dated March 31, 2019.

In the video, locals are accompanying BJP leader Sofi Yousuf, who was on his way to file his nomination papers. Yousuf had himself tweeted a video of the same procession on March 30, 2019.

The clip from the same rally is now being shared with a misleading caption that BJP’s flag was waved in Balochistan.

Hence, the above information proves that the claim attached to the video is false.
