Old Video From Pak Falsely Shared As Protest Against Remarks On Prophet

BOOM found that the viral video is from January 2021 when a large crowd had gathered for Khadim Hussain Rizvi’s chehlum (ceremony held 40 days after the death) in Lahore, Pakistan.

An old video showing a huge gathering of people raising slogans is being shared on social media with captions falsely claiming that it shows people coming together in support of Prophet Mohammad. The video is being shared in the backdrop of the recent controversy surrounding former Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Nupur Sharma.

BOOM found that the viral video is from Lahore, Pakistan and was recorded in January 2021.

Several Arab countries including Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia have registered protests with the Indian government over remarks made by BJP members Nupur Sharma and Naveen Kumar Jindal against the Prophet Mohammed. Following heavy backlash, the BJP distanced themselves from the comments and also expelled Jindal and suspended Sharma from the party.

The Hindi caption with a Facebook post sharing the video translates to 'Today Saudi Arabia, Iran, Qatar, Kuwait, Libya, Oman, Bahrain, Afghanistan, all are together in the name of Huzoor for the sake of the name of their master, Muhammadur RasoolAllah .. And there is only one reason to be united"La ilaha illallahu muhammadur rasulullah."

(In Hindi - अपने आका जनाबे मुहम्मदुर रसूलल्लाह ﷺ" के #नामूस के खातिर सऊदी अरब, ईरान, कतर, कुवैत, लीबिया, ओमान, बहरीन, अफगानिस्तान, सब हुज़ूर ﷺ के नाम पर एक साथ हैं..और मुत्तहिद होने का बस एक ही वज़ह "La ilaha illallahu muhammadur rasulullah" ही है.)
