Fact Check: Deepfake Clip Of Owaisi Reciting Shiva Tandava Stotra Goes Viral As Real

Date:

A video on the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president, Asaduddin Owaisi, chanting the Shiva Tandava Stotra has surfaced on social media.

The Facebook post reads: “As soon as Madhavi Lata garu will compete, Shiva Tandava Stotram from Saheb garu’s mouth👌”.

Here is the link to the above post.

FACT CHECK 

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

Performing a Reverse Image Search on keyframes from the video, the NM team discovered an extended version on YouTube shared by News18 Urdu on October 26, 2022, featuring Owaisi delivering a speech in Bijapur, Karnataka. He can be seen in the same attire as in the viral clip.

We also traced the original video on AIMIM’s official YouTube channel. The viral segment appears at the 09:36 timestamp, where Owaisi is criticising the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and discussing elections in Bijapur. He addresses BJP’s ‘anti-Muslim’ campaigns and comments on beef exports from India. Notably, there is no instance in his speech where he recites the Shiva Tandava Stotra or any other Hindu prayer.

We also found another YouTube video which matches with the audio of Shiv Tandava Stotra. It confirms that the audio has been fabricated. Hence, we can conclusively say that a deepfake video depicting Owaisi reciting Hindu prayers has been shared as real.
