A post is being shared on social media with a claim that on the day of Ram Mandir ‘bhoomi pujan’ in Ayodhya, a truck in Israel was displaying visuals of Ram Mandir.
“इजरायल का अपना अलग ही अंदाज है..देखिए राम मंदिर भूमिपूजन के दिन इजरायल में जगह जगह किस तरह राम जी की झांकियां दिखाई गई। जय जय श्रीराम” -the caption read in Hindi.
(Translation: Israel has its own different style..See how Ram Ji’s glimpse was shown in Israel on the day of Ram Mandir Bhoomi Pujan. Hail Lord Rama)

FACT CHECK 

NewsMobile fact checked the post and found the claim to be misleading.
We ran a keyword search and found a similar video on Facebook.
The video was posted by a Facebook page Hindu Council Australia on August 5, 2020, and the caption read, “Jai Shree Ram. We installed a huge billboard in Blacktown Council car park next to the civic centre from 9 am to 8 PM. Huge Media Screen beaming many programs including a live program from Shri Ayodhya Dham.”


We scanned through the page and found a video featuring a similar truck with billboards.

NewsMobile reached out to Hindu Council of Australia, who confirmed to us that the video is from Australia.
“Yes this is from Australia and copyrights belongs to us,” they told NewsMobile.
Hence, based on this, we can conclude that the video is from Australia and not Israel.
