  • Share


The claim that soldiers of the Indian army chanted anti-BJP RSS slogan in a rally is false. The viral video is an edited one. 

In the backdrop of the anti-CAA protest and controversial statement by BJP MP Anurag Thakur, a video is going viral on social media claiming that Indian soldiers protested against BJP and RSS. A Facebook user named A D Mansoori shared the video with a caption that can be translated to, "A reply to Anurag Thakur in his own language."

At the time of writing this article, this video has been shared more than 20,000 times. You can watch the video here:

A twitter page named Official The LieingHuman shared the same video with a caption, "Modi, Amit Shah must have heard the slogan of India's soldiers .. "RSS ke Dalalo ko goli maro saalo ko" "BJP ke lalo ko goli maro saalo ko" This is happening for the first time in history, the country is really changing."

In the video, the crowd can be heard raising anti-BJP and RSS slogans.

We also received a request to check the reality of the claims with the video. 

The truth behind the video

The viral video has a watermark of video application Tik Tok, so we tried finding the video with relevant keywords on Tik Tok. Tik Tok is a video making application that allows creating videos by recording video on any existing audio or even using a video to add any new audio. 

In our research, we found the viral video but with two different audios. One video has the same audio as in the video but in the other video, the audio is completely different. It turned out that the viral video is edited that means, the original audio has been removed and some other audio is added to the video.

In the viral video, one could see the crowd moving on the road with a number of other vehicles, but in the video, there is no sound of vehicles or traffic. 

In the original video, that was uploaded by a user named Sachin, one could clearly hear the noise of moving traffic. 

In the original video, there are no anti-BJP RSS slogans. And as claimed in viral post, just by looking at the uniform worn by some people in the crowd, it is not confirmed that they are the members of the Indian Army. In our investigation, we did not any news report informing the same. You can watch the original video here:

In conclusion, the claim that soldiers of the Indian army chanted anti-BJP RSS slogan in a rally is false. The viral video is an edited one.
