A video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is doing the rounds on social media, claiming that PM Modi is criticising India on foreign soil.
In Hindi he can be heard saying: “यार पता नहीं पिछले जन्म में क्या पाप किया था, हिंदुस्तान में पैदा हुए थे. ये कोई देश है? ये कोई सरकार है? ये कोई लोग है” (English translation: “I don’t know what sin I had committed in my previous birth, I was born in India. Is this a country? Is this a government? What are these people? Let’s leave.”)
The caption in Hindi reads: “विदेशी धरती पर भारत का मान मर्दन व निंदा करते मोदी- “यार पता नहीं, पिछले जन्म में क्या पाप किया था हिंदुस्तान में पैदा हुए। ये कोई देश है, ये कोई सरकार है, ये कोई लोग हैं! चलो, छोड़ो, चले जाएँगे कहीं और!” (English translation: Modi condemning India on foreign soil — “Dude, I don’t know what sin I did in the previous life, being born in India.” This is a country, this is a government, these are some people! Come on, leave it, will go somewhere else! “)

NewsMobile fact-checked the above video, and found it to be misleading.
In the above video, one can notice ‘Modi in Seoul, 2015’ written on the video. Putting the keyframe of the video through the Reverse Image Search with keywords such as ‘Seoul’, ‘South Korea’, ‘2015’, we identified the full video on the official YouTube channel of Prime Minister Narendra Modi streamed on May 18, 2015. The clip from the video in question can be seen from the time counter 13:49 to 14:09.
However, upon closely analysing the full version of the video, we noticed that from 13:44 mins onwards, PM Modi had actually said “There was a time when people (used to say) I don’t know what sin I had committed in my previous birth, I was born in India. Is this a country? Is this a government? What are these people? Let’s leave.”
So, the above findings establish that the video in question is trimmed from the full video of PM Modi to create a false narrative.
