0 264

A video of a rally is being shared on Facebook with a claim that a BJP rally was held in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).
“Bjp flag in pakistan occupied kashmir ab POK dur nahin Modi hai to mumkin hai hindustan jindabad,” the Facebook post claimed.

Here’s the link to the above post.


NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the claim to be false and misleading.
We ran the extracted keyframes of the video through Reverse Image Search and found that the same video was uploaded by the official Facebook page of BJP Jammu & Kashmir on November 22, 2020.

“#DDCElections #JKWithBJP #DDCElections #JKWithBJP Visuals from #JammuKashmir clearly indicates the love and affection of the people as well as their rock hard faith on the leadership of PM Narendra Modi Ji,” the video was captioned.
For further confirmation, we reached out to Manzoor Bhat, head of media and information technology, BJP Jammu and Kashmir.
Talking to NewsMobile, Bhat told us that the rally took place in the Inderwal constituency in Kishtwar district for the District Development Council (DDC) elections
He also shared with us some other pictures from the rally.

He also sent us the original video, which is now being circulated with a false claim.

Kishtwar district comes under Jammu and Kashmir. This proves that the video in circulation is being shared with misleading claims.
