Fact Check: Old video of public Namaz falsely claimed as a a retaliation to the recent ban on loudspeaker

  • Share

Summary

A video featuring several people offering Namaz on a street was shared on social media with the claim that this is a retaliation to the
loudspeaker ban. It was found that the video is at least two years old, therefore having no relation to the recent issues.

On April 25, Abhay Pratap Singh, a journalist at Sudarshan News, tweeted from his Twitter handle @IAbhay_Pratap the following:

The Tweet claimed that this was done as an alternative to the bans on loudspeakers. The watermark of Sudarshan News is clearly visible in the video.

Fact Check

By doing an image reverse search of the keyframes from the video, the same video was found to have been uploaded back in 2020 by a number of users.
Here is Nitin Thakur's Facebook post featuring this video from 2020:

The video is thus at least two years old, if not more. The exact date when the video was taken cannot be traced.

At around 0:55 seconds, pavement railings coloured white and blue can be seen. This is the staple colour of the All India Trinamool Congress-led West Bengal Government. 

Furthermore, at 1:27, a signboard with the text "Shimla Biriyani" can be seen. Below it, Shimla Biriyani is written in Bengali, suggesting that this video
maybe from West Bengal.

In conclusion, the offering of Namaz on the street is not being done as an alternative to banning loudspeakers. The video is at least two years old, having been posted in 2020, so it cannot have any connection with recent issues involving loudspeakers.
