Inorder to check the claim we analyzed keyframes and performed a reverse image search on various search engines.
Through the utilization of reverse imaging techniques it was determined that the shared video dates back to October, 2020 . Chants of ‘voting-voting’ inside Pakistan parliament were misreported as ‘Modi-Modi’ chants. No such pro-Modi sloganeering happened inside Pakistan national assembly.
Our research confirmed that an old video with altered and erroneous context was reshared to propagate false & defamatory claims.
