FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above post, and found it to be doctored.

On putting the keyframes of the video through Google Reverse Image Search, we found a video from the same event from a different angle on the official YouTube channel of newswire ANI, uploaded on February 16, 2022, in which we could not hear the song.

The title of the video stated that PM Modi took part in the ‘Shabad Kirtan’ at Guru Ravidas Vishram Dham Temple on the occasion of 645th birth anniversary of Sant Ravidas.

On digging further with relevant keywords, we found the exact same video on the official YouTube channel of PM Modi.

We also ran the audio through the Shazam app and the result showed Kya Mujhe Pyar Hai by Khudgarz. We found the original song source on the YouTube channel of Khudgharz band official. The song was picked up from the 03:10 time counter and inserted over PM Modi’s video.

With the above findings, it is clear that PM Modi’s video in question is doctored.
