Fact Check: Video of ‘Kalash Yatra’ in Greater Noida Falsely Shared As Procession In Nepal

Date:

A video showing thousands of women walking in orange saree with pots on their heads is widely shared on social media claiming that it is a procession in Nepal, the birthplace of Goddess Sita and that people are going to Ayodhya with gifts and offerings. 

The video is shared on Facebook with a caption: “Procession from Nepal, mother’s house of Godess Sita Devi, carrying gifts and offers for the Kumbabhishekam ceremony of Sri Rama Sita temple in Ayodhya. So not only India but Nepal is also in full *“josh”* for the Ram Temple !!

Here’s the link to the above post

FACT CHECK 

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim, and found it to be MISLEADING.

Performing a Reverse Image Search of keyframes from the viral video, the NM team spotted a news report carrying visuals similar to the viral video. According to the article dated July 9, 2023, “Dhirendra Shastri’s Shrimad Bhagwat Katha is being organised in Greater Noida. This programme will be organised from July 10 to July 16. Regarding this, a big Kalash Yatra was organised in Greater Noida on Sunday, in which thousands of people, especially women, participated enthusiastically and about three-kilometres long Kalash Yatra was taken out”.

The same video was also published on a YouTube channel stating that it shows ‘Kalash Yatra’ held in Greater Noida. 

We also found a news report by ETV Bharat on July 9, 2023, with a headline: “Greater Noida: Kalash Yatra taken out before Bhagwat Katha of Pandit Dhirendra Krishna Shastri”. 

Thus, it is evident from the above information that a video showing ‘Kalash Yatra’ held in Greater Noida is falsely shared with false claims.
