Rumour

A video is going viral on social media with the claim that ‘Saudi Prince’ has expressed his opinion on the Kashmir issue. You can watch the video here which is viral on Facebook and Whatsapp.

A Facebook page "PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN" posted the video with a caption Opinion of Saudi prince on Kashmir issue, see how beautifully he expressed his opinion. In the video, a person from the audience is seen asking a question to the speaker to which the speaker replies,

"My position on the Kashmir issue is very clear, I’m not a politician, I only care about history and religion. I know that Islam came to India much later than Hinduism, which had already existed. Pakistan claimed independence way after all this happened, 70 years ago. So I don’t see Pakistan as a suitable negotiator regarding Kashmir. I don’t think they have the right to speak. I believe it’s Hinduland, that’s very controversial, many will say no, they have the right to their opinion. My position is Kashmir is Hinduland, and I say this in front of everyone. I’m not just saying this because I’m in India, this has been my opinion for five years, even when I was an extremist this was my opinion, So nobody can say that I’m being paid by Modi."

Many individual users have also shared the same video with almost a similar caption.

The video has also been shared on Youtube with similar claims.

Our Investigation

We already knew Imam Tawhidi, so it was not difficult for us to identify the claim as misleading. When we searched for it, we found that this has already been debunked by India Today.

In the picture below, Imam Tawhidi is in left while Saudi Prince Mohammed Bin Salman is in right.

A few days ago, Imam Tawhidi was in India to attend a cultural event. This viral video is taken from that event. His entire discussion in that event can be seen here on YouTube.

Iman Tawhidi himself pointed out on Twitter that he is not the prince of Saudi Arabia.

 

Fact

The person claimed to be a Saudi prince is actually Imam Mohamad Tawhidi, a Shia Muslim cleric from Australia. He is popularly known as the ‘Imam of Peace’ and is known for speaking against radical Islamic ideology and has a huge following in India.
