A video is being widely shared on social media with a claim that it was taken during a rally at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan in support of CAA and NRC. Let’s try to analyze the claim made in the post.
Claim: Video shows rally in support of CAA and NRC at Ramlila Maidan (Delhi).
Fact: The posted video is an old one. The same video was found to be tweeted by a user in July-2019. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When the screenshots of the video were run through the Yandex Reverse Image Search, a similar video can be found in the search results. The video (archived) was tweeted by a user in July-2019. So, it is an old video.
In the video, in the end, the slogans of ‘Mandir vahi banayenge’ can be heard and the man in the video also refers to ‘Ramlila Maidan’ in the video. So, when searched with the relevant keywords, it was found that VHP held ‘a rally in Delhi’s Ram Leela Maidan for Ram Temple construction in Ayodhya’ in December-2018. The video might be related to that event. But, it can be concluded that the video is definitely not related to any recent rally in support of CAA and NRC.
To sum it up, an old video is being falsely shared as ‘rally in support of CAA and NRC at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan’.
