COVID-19: Viral video of men licking utensils is NOT from Nizamuddin; here’s the fact check


Following the Nizamuddin gathering of close to 2000 people, that led to a spike in the number of Coronavirus cases in the country, a video has surfaced on the internet in which a few men can be seen licking utensils.

It has been claimed that the viral video is from Nizamuddin and it was done to spread the deadly virus.

The caption of the video read: “निजामुद्दीन से मिले
खाली बर्तनो को जुठा करते हुए”

Another post with the same video read: “Corona is not spreading in India but is being spread. The latest example of this is from Nizamuddin.” (Translated)

NewsMobile fact-checked the video and found that it is OLD.

We extracted the keyframes of the video and put it through Reverse Image Search. We found the same video on Vimeo uploaded on July 31, 2018.

Video depicting crazy behaviors of gullible plate, bowels, spoons licking Bohrasplate-licking Bohras 2 from Asghar Vasanwala on Vimeo.

As per the description, the video is of the Bohra community. The description also states that in Bohra culture, they believe in ‘not wasting even a single grain of food’ and hence were licking the cutlery.

We also found an article by The Outlook, featuring an image, where people can be seen sitting in a similar fashion, in similar attire, eating from a thali.


Even though NewsMobile couldn’t independently verify the origin of the video, it can safely be said that the video is OLD and is not related to COVID-19.
