Fact Check: Old Clipped Video Of Owaisi Shared With False Communal Angle 

Date:

A video of AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi is being circulated on social media, claimed to be threatening Hindus and questioning who would protect them once Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath are no longer in power.

The video is shared with a caption: “जातियों में बटने वाले ये देख लो एक बार !! साढ़े चार साल से हिंदू हिंदू करने वाली जातियां, फ़िर से ब्राह्मण, , ठाकुर , राजपूत, जाट, मीणा, बनिया, कश्यप , पटेल बन गये है” (English translation: Look at these people dividing into castes!! Castes that have been turning Hindus into Hindus for four and a half years Have again become Brahmin, Thakur, Rajput, Jat, Meena, Bania, Kashyap, Patel)

Here’s the link to the above post. (Archive)

FACT CHECK 

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

The NM team found the original video posted on AIMIM’s official Facebook page in October 2021. In the video, at the 39-minute timestamp, Asaduddin Owaisi can be heard referring to an alleged case of police brutality against a Muslim man. Owaisi mentioned an incident in Kanpur where an 80-year-old man named Mohammad Rafiq’s beard was reportedly pulled and he was urinated upon at a police station by a sub-inspector named Gajender Pal Singh. 

Owaisi expressed his distress over the incident and then made the statement that is part of the viral video, “Yogi will not always remain the chief minister. Modi will not always remain the prime minister. We Muslims are silent because of the time. We will not forget your injustices. Allah with his power will destroy you. Things will change according to the time. Then who will come to save you?” The segment where Asaduddin Owaisi addresses the UP Police, saying, “I want to say this to those police officers”, has been edited out of the viral video to create a false claim. Additionally, in the speech that follows, Owaisi continues to cite several other cases of alleged police atrocities.

On December 24, 2021, Owaisi responded to the viral video, stating that it was edited. He clarified on his official handle that he was addressing police atrocities in his speech. The thread containing his response can be viewed below.

Thus, it is evident from the above information that an old clipped video of Owaisi is falsely shared with a communal angle.
