Leftist propaganda website Scroll recently released a video to talk about the Supreme Court resuming hearing on the Babri Masjid case.

Video uploaded by Scroll

In the video, from the 1:40-minute mark onward, the video talks about the demolishment of Babri Masjid and the series of events that led to it. At around 2 minutes 55 seconds into the video, Scroll talks about how the idol of Lord Ram mysteriously appeared and was laid by a ‘mob’ that ‘laid siege’.

However, as Twitter user @TrueIndology pointed out the images used in the video are not of a ‘Hindu mob’ that laid siege over the mosque. In fact, it is not even from India. The image, sources from Getty Images, is actually from Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

After the Babri Masjid demolition, Muslim protestors in Pakistan shouted anti-India slogan after setting a Hindu temple of fire and demolition stonework on 7th December 1992, a day after Babri Masjid demolition on 6th December, 1992. As described in the picture above, at least 11 temples in Pakistan were attacked as retaliation to the demolishment of Babri masjid.

It is rather interesting the lengths Scroll travelled to weave this lie, and it certainly seems like it was no ‘mistake’. It seems like Scroll deliberately cropped the top part of the temple so as to hide the fact that the picture was of a temple being desecrated, and also the bottom clothing of the Pakistani because that outfit is not seen in India.

This is not the first time Scroll has spread lies and exhibited its Hinduphobia. Earlier, it was caught spreading lies about the famous ‘Tundey Kabab’ shop being closed down due to UP government’s crackdown on meat. Following it, Scroll changed the headline and the body of the article, showing how a story could be told in two ways, depending on the narrative that is to be peddled. It also wrote an article on Swami Vivekanand that reeked of Hinduphobia. In fact, once Scroll even had to take down an article that attempted to whitewash barbaric Khilji’s crimes and malign Rajputs.

However, Scroll hasn’t yet taken down the video or clarified their use of the image of Muslim mob in Pakistan destroying Hindu temples as that of a mob laying siege on Babri Masjid.
