Fact Check: Were Modi-Modi slogans raised inside Pakistan parliament?

  • Share

Summary

The video of the parliament proceedings is Pakistan is being shared with a false claim that MPs were raising slogans in support of Modi. 

A video of the Pakistani National Assembly is being shared widely on social media, in which the country's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi is making statements on the recent incident when Prophet Muhammad's cartoon was shown in France. In this video, some MPs can be heard raising slogans in the background and it is being claimed that these MPs are chanting 'Modi-Modi'. 

BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga shared the video with the caption, "Baluchistan MPs raising Modi-Modi slogans in Pakistan Parliament."

At the time of writing this article, this video has been reshared over 5300 times. 

Shehzad Jai Hind also shared the video saying, "We have all heard @narendramodi slogans in India!! Massive embarrassment for Pakistan & Imran as Opposition in Pakistan Parliament chants "Modi Modi" There go Lahoria's dreams of contesting in Pakistan."

A number of Twitter users including journalist Deepak Chaurasia also shared the video with a similar claim. 

The truth behind the claim 

In our investigation, we found this claim to be false. In the viral video, MPs are raising slogans of 'voting-voting.'

On analyzing the video, it became clear that 'voting-voting' is being chanted in the background. When we checked on the internet, we found a longer version of the video of the proceedings on 'Dunya News' YouTube channel.

In the video, Shah Mehmood Qureshi is replying to Khwaja Asif's statement of the opposition party. As he starts to speak, MPs shout 'voting-voting' from behind. After this, to pacify the opposition leaders, the speaker says, 'Voting..it will happen..everything will happen ... be patient,' hence, it is clear from this part of the video that the opposition leaders are demanding voting.

We also found a report on the incident published by The Dawn according to which the leader of the opposition chanted 'voting-voting'  for the resolution presented by Asif.

Hence, the video of the parliament proceedings is Pakistan is being shared with a false claim that MPs were raising slogans in support of Modi.
