Fact Check: 2021 Clip On Punjab’s Baba Rodu Shah ‘Prasad’ Goes Viral With Fictitious Claims


Amidst the ongoing farmers’ protest, many videos have surfaced online, including a 23-second clip, depicting a group of individuals standing adjacent to large blue plastic drums. These videos highlight the current situation where farmers, despite government promises made in September 2020 regarding minimum support price guarantees and dropping lawsuits, continue their protest and march towards Delhi.

A Facebook user posted the video with a caption: “On Camera – Emotional Blackmail that we are ‘anndata’ Behind Cameras REALITY- Enjoying ALCOHOL Daru Langars at ‘Protest’🍻🍺#FarmersProtest2024 #FarmersProtest”

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

Running a Reverse Image Search on video keyframes, our NM team traced a Facebook post carrying the same video, dated September 13, 2021, with a caption: Daaru bhandara.

With relevant keywords, our team identified a YouTube video, dated September 07, 2021, showing the same setup where people had large blue drums filled with alcohol with a title: “Baba Rodu Sah Ji Village Kaunke Kalan.”

Searching further, we found that the villagers in Kaunke Kalan near Ludhiana bring alcohol to Baba Rodu Shah as a custom before distributing them amongst themselves as prasad. It confirm that the video, originating from the Baba Rodu Shah fair, has been circulating on Internet since 2021.

Therefore, we can conclusively say that a 2021 clip of Baba Rodu Shah ‘prasad’ has gone viral with fictitious claims.
