FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the viral post, and found it to be false.

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, the NM team identified a Facebook post on an unverified account, dated October 7, 2021. Here, the caption confirms that the video is from Ellenabad, but given that it was posted in 2021, it cannot be linked to the ongoing protests. 

Also, a YouTube video on the channel named खास हरियाणा Khas Haryana — a local news organisation, dated October 7, 2021, carries some visuals that match with the viral clip. But the date of its posting predates the ongoing events in the country. 

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post, claiming angry farmers recently burnt BJP flags in Ellenabad, is false.
