New Delhi: A video of a massive rally with a background song that says “Islam zindabad” is being shared widely on social media platforms.

The clip is being shared with a caption that reads, “This is not a visual from Kashmir or Kerala but from Kolkata. Hindus in the country should look at this before criticising Modi.”

Fact Check

The video is from a rally in Bangladesh in 2017 against the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.  ThePrint also found that posters held by the members of the rally read, “Stop brutal genocide on Rohingya Muslims”.

The rally was organised by the Students Movement of Islamic Constitution or Islami Shasontantra Chhatra Andolan (ISCA), a student outfit.

The colour of the police uniform seen in the clip is a darker shade of green, different from the khaki-coloured uniform that Indian police personnel wear.

A video of the rally was also uploaded by the ISCA on YouTube on 17 September 2017. More than one million people had taken to the streets during the rally in a bid to block the Myanmar Embassy in Bangladesh.

  1. It is incumbent upon every Indian to protest and stop- in whatever way possible- each single act and plan to create fear and divide among the citizens by miscreants and anti-nationals through sharing such mischievous videos and through other nefarious activities that are loaded with the ill intentions of establishing a draconian regime at the hands of leaders whose occupation is out and out lying, deceit and dishonesty.

  2. Bangladesh is becoming islamist country. We will see in future massive exodos of hindus. Bengalis should wake up before it’s too late to save your land

    • Instead of commenting on the falsity of the video (exposing which is the purpose of this article), you have conveniently diverted the issue to something else-a typical BJP trait.
