Hi,

Greetings for the day!
Although I have never got a response for any of my mails, here I am raising another anomalous issue which needs to be authenticated for it's veracity or falsity:

"Gandhiji took a vote of Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) presidents in 1946, and only one of the 16 PCC Presidents voted for Nehru. The other 15 voted for Sardar Patel. But Gandhiji asked Patel to withdraw in favour of Nehru for practical politics ?  to hasten British departure- Subramanian Swamy (https://scroll.in/article/685571/four-facts-about-sardar-patel-that-modi-would-find-disappointing)"

"A perusal of Congress party documents shows that despite Gandhiji having made his choice known, 12 of 15 state committees nominated Patel for party president." - MAKKHAN LAL  (https://theprint.in/opinion/jawaharlal-nehrus-election-as-indias-first-prime-minister-wasnt-unanimous/34519/)

Have been trying to ascertain the fact about this which even big media houses have reported, but could not find anything authentic till now.

Request you to please delve into this and bring about the truth.

This may help:

"This, as you may know, is an extremely popular tale on the internet. As you also might know, Pradesh Congress Committees voting to elect the prime minister is an absurd proposition ? a bit like Modi getting elected by BJP state units.

A variant of this conspiracy theory is that the Pradesh Congress Committees thought they were electing the Congress president (and not the prime minister). But the Congress president at the time of Independence somehow became prime minister (the exact process is never explained). Problems here too: Pradesh Congress Committees don’t elect Presidents, delegates of the All India Congress Committee do. Moreover, Nehru was not the Congress President when India gained independence, JB Kripalani was. Tragically, no one informed Kripalani of this mechanism and he remained bereft of prime ministership right until his dying day.

The simple reason as to why Nehru became PM was that he was, by far, the Congress’ most popular politician (after Gandhi, of course). Right from the 1937 provincial elections, Nehru was the party’s star campaigner, enthralling crowds with his Hindustani oratory. Patel had an iron grip on the Congress party itself but he was many miles behind Nehru as a popular leader. The Sardar himself conceded this: at a massively attended Congress rally in Mumbai, he told American journalist Vincent Sheean, “They come for Jawahar, not for me.”

Thus, in 1946, when the Viceroy formed his interim government, Nehru was, unsurprisingly, given the highest post. Later, on August 15, 1947, he naturally took office as prime minister, without the least opposition from anyone in the Congress.

Fact Hunt's Response

As per a report by BBC dated Oct 11, 2019, the Pentagon had announced the deployment of thousands of additional troops to "enhance the defence of Saudi Arabia".

US Secretary of Defence Mark Esper says he has authorised the deployment of additional forces, including fighter jets and a defence system.

He said it was in response to "threats in the region", amid efforts to protect the kingdom from "Iranian aggression".

The move comes after an attack on Saudi Arabia's oil facilities in September.

The US has increased the deployment of forces in the region by 14,000 since May, according to CNN. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had requested additional support.

The deployment aims to enhance the defence of Saudi Arabia, the Pentagon says.

A claim is going viral on social media that Muslims started pelting stones at Durga Puja Visarjan procession because the music was not stopped while crossing a mosque.

Please Verify.

Read More

Fact Hunt's Response

The claim is correct.

The Balrampur police have responded on Twitter and confirmed that 8 people have been arrested in connection with the attack and stone-pelting on the Durga Puja Visarjan procession and that the police is taking adequate measures to nab the rest of the individuals involved.

The Additional Superintendent of Police from Balrampur, Uttar Pradesh told OpIndia that the Durga puja Visarjan procession came under attack as it was passing in front of a mosque. Just before the mosque, there is a right turn. The procession that generally has a DJ and plays loud music passes through the mosque.

However, generally, the music is expected to be switched off while the Durga Puja procession passes through the mosque. The music, however, was not stopped and thus, an enraged Muslim community started pelting stones at the procession.

Hello, For my future article on the spreading of fake news by both Left and Right "camps" I would really like to know if the accusation of a 15 year old Muslim boy Kaliq Ansari being set ablaze in Chandauli for not having chanted Jai Shri Ram was proved as fake. Had he set fire to himself at some Dargah? Was he used by some mullahs in order to spread hate? Some reports found online say did he walked back home and said he felt a burning sensation. Some reports speak of 60 % burns, others of 45%. Some reports say he was 15, others say he was 18. Some say he has died in a Varanasi hospital. Does the truth really not count ?? Could you let me know what is the truth and especially whether (if the news is fake) the prominent personalities spreading it have made any comment or apology ? Many thanks, Akshay Bakaya Professor of Hindi-Urdu SIAL-Sorbonne, Paris akshay.bakaya@gmail.com +33-6-78 87 11 72

The police in its investigation found the claim wrong. They analysed the CCTV footage to find the victim's claim wrong. Moreover, the victim kept on changing his statement which indicates that he was tutored. In the first conversation, the victim's mother didn't claim any religious angle. Ashok Swain, Prashant Bhushan and the wire's journalist Arfa Khanum Sherwani are some of the prominent personalities who contributed in this rumor despite multiple clarifications by UP Police. All evidences are mention in our article. Apart from us, Only Times Fact Check and Factly debunked this claim. All other fact-checkers simply ignored this just like several other cases that were debunked by us.

Was PM Modi denied a diplomatic visa by united states of America?

Read More

Fact Hunt's Response

Yes, PM Modi was denied visa in 2005. According to an archived post of United States Department of State, Mr. Modi this visa under section 214 (b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act because he was not coming for a purpose that qualified for a diplomatic visa.

Not only that his existing tourist/business visa was also revoked under section 212 (a) (2) (g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. 

Section 212 (a) (2) (g) makes any foreign government official who "was responsible for or directly carried out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religious freedom" ineligible for a visa to the United States.

The decision was based on the fact that, as head of the State government in Gujarat between February 2002 and May 2002, he was responsible for the performance of state institutions at that time. The State Department's detailed views on this matter are included in its annual Country Reports on Human Rights Practices and the International Religious Freedom Report. Both reports document the violence in Gujarat from February 2002 to May 2002 and cite the Indian National Human Rights Commission report, which states there was "a comprehensive failure on the part of the state government to control the persistent violation of rights of life, liberty, equality, and dignity of the people of the state."

According to a report by Patrika, the case is from Dungasara village of Chanderi police station area. Around about 4 to 5 pm on 15 August, Chanderi residents Govind Kushwaha, Pramod, Nandlal Koli, and Sanju Parmar were going to Sonai village by bike for Rakhi. Sanju Parmar was driving the bike. To take Gutkha, he stopped at a roadside shop when they were attacked by Aslam and Sameer. 

Pramod died on the spot after being stabbed in the back. Nandlal Koli and Sanju Parmar are seriously injured. Govind Kushwaha escaped. Police have arrested the two accused.

According to the report, the attack was due to rivalry and not in self-defense.

However, we haven't verified the incident independently.
