In our investigation, we found this video to be an old one and it has no relation to the Anti-CAA NRC protests.
In addition to the number of fake news that is doing rounds on social media in the wake of demonstrations against the Citizenship Amendment Act and NRC, a video is being widely shared on Twitter with a claim that some Anti-CAA NRC protesters burned pictures of Hindu Gods.
A Twitter user named Jayshree Nair shared the video with the caption, "Shocking! How dare these fools to burn the photos of Hindu Gods & Goddesses in the name of CAA protest? What the hell CAA has to do with Hindus? Their agenda is different & politicians of @INCIndia & @cpimspeak are nurturing this.@PMOIndia @rashtrapatibhvn @VPSecretariat @AmitShah."
More than 5000 people shared this video including theNational Spokesperson of BJP, Sambit Patra.
You can watch the video down below.
The 44 seconds long video shows a group of people burning pictures of Hindu deities while chanting some slogans.
By relevant keyword search, we found a longer version of the same video to be uploaded on a YouTube channel with a caption, "Bhim army activists disrespect Hindu gods."
The video was uploaded on September 3, 2018.
This video was also shared on Facebook a year back with a caption, "I hope you have taken action on this people ,specially Buddhist anti social people in name of Ambedkar how can they do this kind of hatred and crime against Hindus.."
In this post, the user has claimed that video to be from Karnataka.
Although, we were not able to ascertain the location of the incident, but it is clear that the video has no relation to the Anti-CAA NRC protest as it is at least a year-old video.
