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….”
(English Translation: BJP flag in Pakistan…Celebration of the people who believe that Modi will come to power and get them freedom in Balochistan, Pakistan…)
Here’s the link to the above post.
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.

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.
