Rumour

Amid several fake news, that are doing rounds on social media due to the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act, a picture was widely shared with the claim that a large number of people from the Muslim community gathered at  ‘Mohammad Ali Road’ in Mumbai in protest against CAA. 

A facebook page name Jotoni Khupo shared the picture of a rally with a caption 'Protest Against CAB at Mohammed Ali Road Mumbai'.

The viral picture received 152 likes and 105 shares at the time of writing this article.

Another user also shared the same picture with a caption, " See the population of Muslims, see the dangerous motive of Jihadis. This is the unity of the Quran. Secular Hindus should wake up. Otherwise, your children will be facing the consequences." ( Translated to English from Hindi)

Text on the image reads, "Image of protest against CAA on Mohammad Ali Road in Mumbai". 

Our Investigation

In our investigation, we found this claim to be false. This picture is not of any protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act but is actually a screenshot of a video in which Bangladeshi-Muslims are celebrating a festival called ‘Jashne Juluse’.

By reverse image search, we found a video by Youtube channel named jahedul alam Parvez. According to the title of the video that was uploaded on 10 November 2019, this video is of Jashne Juluse in Chittagong, Bangladesh.

At 00:05 sec mark in the video, we can see the clip when the screenshot was taken. 

On further keyword search, we found a cleared video of the same occasion on Miladun Nabi channel.

With the flyover in the background and huge turnout of the crowd, one can clearly identify that the viral picture was a screenshot taken from these videos. 

Fact

The viral picture claiming to be of protest at Mohammad Ali Road in Mumbai is misleading as it is from Bangladesh that was captured during a celebration of a festival in Chittagong. The viral picture has nothing to do with ongoing protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
