Sudarshan News is always in the spotlight for provoking and fabricated news. It claims to expose the atrocities being done to the Hindu religion. The founder and one of the anchors of the Sudarshan news are Suresh Chavhanke. On the 20th of October, it broadcasted one such controversial news. The infamous anchor Suresh Chavhanke threw abuses at Asaduddin Owaisi who is the chief of AIMIM.
He accused Owaisi of dancing after the murder of Kamlesh Tiwari. Kamlesh Tiwari was a Hindu Samaj leader who was shot dead in Lucknow on October 18. Chavhanke even played a video and claimed that Mr Owaisi danced on 19th October, celebrating the murder of Kamlesh Tiwari, just after the day he was killed.

The video clip tweeted by Chavhanke is just a fraction of the whole show. It was simply posted with the misleading narrative. The complete show was uploaded on the News official YouTube channel later on 21. It was titled, “कमलेश तिवारी की तबाही की धमकी देने वाले उन्मादी ओवैसी को गिरफ्तार करो”.
This got viral like wildfire, when we searched this on Facebook, we got so many posts

After checking the facts we found that video of Asaduddin Owaisi was recorded by ANI news, just a day before Kamlesh Tiwari killed, not after. It was uploaded by ANI on October 18 and it states that the video was recorded on October 17. The post was captioned “Maharashtra: AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi performs a dance step after the end of his rally at Paithan Gate in Aurangabad. (17.10.2019)”. Kamlesh Tiwari was killed by two goons, who are under arrest now, on October 18.

Later Owaisi stated to the media that he was replicating pulling the string of a kite. He went on to say that a song was later added into the video, “I was far away from Music and will remain far away…”
Sudarshan News is well known for airing provocative broadcast using fake news. Their editor-in-chief and the channel itself have often been caught spreading misinformation relating to fulfilling its communal agenda. In the past, it showed a video altered with chanting slogans provoking to kill RSS workers.
One should always verify the news before sharing it. Especially if it has do with some religious or communal issue. These kind of news may lead to loss of peace in the society and it is our responsibility to stop it. We should remain vigilant and safe from such war mongering people who aim to disrupt the functioning of society.
