The caption in Hindi read: “धारा 370 पर किसी भी देश का साथ न मिलने पर पागल हुए पाक_PM_इमरान_खान देने लगे पत्रकारों को गालियाँ”
(Translation: Pakistan PM Imran Khan abuses journalists, mad for not getting the support of any country)

Several other Facebook pages/ profiles also shared the video with the same claim:


NewsMobile fact-checked the viral video and found that the claim attached to the video is false.
On putting the keyframes of the video through Reverse Image Search, we found that the above video is old and it was not shot after the scrapping of Article 370 (on August 5th, 2015)
We came across the same video on YouTube dated June 8th, 2015 in which Imran Khan got angry at the reporters during a press conference.

Hence, the video is four-year old when Imran Khan was not even the Prime Minister. Hence, the claim attached with the viral video is FAKE.
