Congress leaders post doctored video to prove the video of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogan in Congress rally is fake

Pakistan Zindabad slogan was raised in a Congress rally in Rajasthan during a speech by Sidhu

On December 3, a video clip appeared on social media which showed that during a rally address by Congress leader Navojit Singh Sidhu, slogans of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ was raised by some people. Sidhu was addressing an election rally in Khairthal, Alwar in Rajasthan on December 1. Zee News did a report on slogans and showed a portion of the speech when then Pakistan Zindabad slogans were heard.

After this, several Congress leaders claimed that no such slogan was raised, and alleged that Zee News was spreading fake news. As a proof of their claim, they posted the ‘original video’ of the speech. Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala claimed that a doctored video was being spread, and he posted a 45-second video of the speech as a proof.

The same was also tweeted by other Congress workers, denying that any such slogan was raised and the video was doctored.

But what the Congress leaders are claiming to be ‘original video’ of the speech is actually a small portion of the whole speech by Sidhu, and obviously, the slogan has been carefully left out of that short clip.

We have found that a 22-minute video of the speech was posted on Youtube on December 1, the day Sidhu addressed the rally. In that video, at 6:19 minutes, it is heard that someone indeed shouted Pakistan Zindabad. Just before Sidhu starts mocking Modi by saying ‘behno aur bhaiyo’, this slogan is heard in the background.

The clip shared by the Congress leaders start just after this, hence it does not contain the slogan.

The video was also shown by a Pakistani channel, which noted that Pakistan Zindabad slogans were raised in India.

Therefore, it can be concluded that allegations of Congress that the video is doctored in wrong. Someone indeed raised the slogan in the rally. And to prove their point, the Congress leaders actually posted a ‘doctored’ video, by cutting the part where the slogan was heard.
