Fact Check: Image Claiming Farmers Moving Towards NCR Borders With Cows Is Fake

Date:

A video showing a large herd of cows and herders moving on the road is doing the rounds on social media. Many users claim that farmers are bringing their cows to the protest sites as the government has banned tractors on the borders. 

A Facebook user posted the viral post with the following caption: 

কৃষক ট্রাক্টর নিয়ে আসছিল তাতে সরকারের আপত্তি।

এবার গরু নিয়ে আন্দোলন করছে।

যেমন কুকুর তেমন মুগুর।

(English: Government objects that the farmer was bringing tractors.

Now they are protesting with cows.

Like dog like mugur.)

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 tweet, dated April 22, 2022, on an unverified account. The video matches exactly with the viral clip, suggesting that the devotees of Nihang Baba Pala Singh ji, fondly known as “Gayian Wala Baba”, looking after the 6,000 + cows at Baba Bakala Sahib near Amritsar.

Searching further, we came across an Instagram post, dated December 31, 2021. This video, too, matches with the viral clip, corroborating that these are devotees of Nihang Baba Pala Singh.

Given that the video has been online since December 2021, it cannot be linked to the ongoing farmer’s protest. Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post, claiming farmers are marching towards Delhi with their cows…, is false.
