A video circulating on social media depicting Congress supporters chanting “Pakistan Zindabad” has been debunked as a fake. The video allegedly captured a group of men chanting the slogan in the presence of police officers in the Belagavi Uttar Assembly constituency after Congress candidate Asif Sait won the election. The video was shared on Twitter by a user named ‘Befitting Facts’, known for promoting pro-Bharatiya Janata Party content.
However, Congress leader Asif Raju Sait from the same constituency has dismissed the video as doctored and urged people not to believe such propaganda. According to him, miscreants had added voice bites to the video to make it appear as if the youth were chanting “Pakistan Zindabad”.
“It is a fake video. I have got it fact-checked. I urge people not to believe in such propaganda,” said Mr. Sait.
Several Twitter users have also clarified that the crowd was actually chanting “Raju Sait Zindabad” and not “Pakistan Zindabad”. Mr. Sait expressed his disappointment and hurt that people attempted to insult India by spreading such misinformation. He emphasized his commitment to the country and urged the police to conduct an impartial investigation and take strict action against those responsible for spreading the doctored video.
