Analysis of Pakistani Burning Pakistan Flag viral video
But how much do you think that the video is real or is it a fake news? So, lets check the reality.
First things first, the video which is getting viral these days “Pakistani Burning Pakistan Flag” is nearly a three years old video. This means that the news is not of current date so it fails the aspect of timeliness. But where did this clip come from? Well, the video clip was first shared by The Washington Post’s Karachi correspondent Nisar Mehdi. The video clip is taken from the Islamic seminary Darul Uloom in Uttar Pradesh’s Deoband. The Molanas Of Darul Uloom Deoband India have burnt the Pakistani flag and they have chanted the slogan against Pakistan.
When we googled it, we saw many similar videos shared previously, the oldest we could find was from 2016 so that proves it’s not some latest video.
No doubt the video clip has been broadcasted in the backdrop of the abrogation of Articles 370 and 35A, but this is not true at all. This was a pre-planned fake news that was shared so as to create chaos and confusion in the minds of the citizen.
