A 15-seconds video is being shared on Facebook by many users claiming that Modi in his speech said that he is the son of a Pathan. Let’s try to analyze the claim made in the post.
Claim 1: Modi: “I am the son of a Pathan. I speak and do truthful things.”
Fact: The video posted on Facebook is clipped. In the full video, Modi claims that Imran Khan has said, “I am the son of a Pathan. I speak and do truthful things.” Hence the claim made in the post is MISLEADING.
When the video posted on Facebook is divided into frames using Invid tool and the frames are searched on Google Reverse Image Search, it can be found the video was taken from the Modi’s speech at a public meeting in Tonk, Rajasthan on 23rd February, 2019. When searched for ‘Modi’s speech at Tonk, Rajasthan”, the full version of the video can be found on the BJP’s Official YouTube channel. At 1:01:02 seconds in the video, it can be observed that Modi says the exact sentences posted on Facebook. But before that, he says that Imran Khan told him so. Hence, the original video has been clipped selectively to mislead the people.
To sum it up, Modi in his Rajasthan speech said that Imran Khan said to him. “I am the son of a Pathan”.
