Last year’s funeral procession video is being shared as a recent protest in J&K to liberate Kashmir


A procession video is being shared on Facebook with a claim that the procession took place in Jammu and Kashmir yesterday. Let’s try to analyze the claim made in the post.

The archived version of the post can be found here.

Claim: Hundreds of thousands of Kashmiris took street yesterday in Jammu and Kashmir to liberate their land from India.    

Fact: The gathering in the video is a funeral procession of two Kashmiri youth in a gun battle with Indian security forces. The procession took place in December-2018. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.    

When the screenshots of the video were run through Yandex Reverse Image Search, a link to a YouTube video was found in the search results. The title of the video reads: ‘Two Teenage Kashmiri Rebels Were Killed Yesterday | Kashmiri women take out a procession’. The video was uploaded by ‘U TV Viral’ in December-2018.

When searched on Google with the description given below the YouTube video, some newspaper articles on the procession can be found in the search results. The ‘AP News’ article writes: ‘Kashmiri villagers attend the joint funeral of teenage rebels Saqib Bilal Sheikh and Mudasir Rashid Parray at Hajin village, north of Srinagar, Indian controlled Kashmir, Monday, Dec. 10, 2018.’ For more information, ‘The Diplomat’ article on this issue can be read here.

To sum it up, last year’s funeral procession video is being shared as a recent protest in J&K to liberate Kashmir.
