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 traced a YouTube video on the official channel of Mojo Story, dated December 25, 2023, with a title: Tamil Nadu To Ayodhya | Amid Chants Of ‘Jai Shri Ram,’ 42 Temple Bells Embark On Ram Mandir Journey. The video matches with the viral clip, confirming that the bells have been manufactured in Tamil Nadu. There was no mention of BHEL anywhere in the report. 

Conducting a Google Keyword Search, we found a news article from The New Indian Express covering the same incident. According to the article, a devotee from Bengaluru named Rajendra Prasad placed an order at Andal Moulding Works for 48 bells for the Ram Temple. The bells were first placed at the Anjaneyar temple in Namakkal where prayers were offered, and then dispatched to Bengaluru. 

Similar news articles were also published in The Hindu and News18 as well. There was no mention of BHEL in any of the articles confirming there is no link between the two. 

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post, claiming BHEL, Trichy, made bells for the Ayodhya temple, is false.
