Students of Aligarh Muslim University and Jamia Millia Islamia University are heavily protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Bill which was passed on December 9 this year. However, a lot of misinformation is being spread against student protesters of these universities. Recently, BJP Yuva Morcha Vice President, Santosh Ranjan Rai, shared a video with a caption, “हिंदुओं की कब्र खुदेगी, AMU की छाती पर.यह भारत में सुनने को मिल रहा है भाई” (The graves of Hindus will be built on the chest of AMU, today we are listening to this.)

This video has got around 95 likes and 58 retweets and has been shared by a few.

A video with a watermark of Sudarshan News has the audio slowed down as well.

BJP IT Cell Head Amit Malviya also shared the video.


Fact Check

In the video which has been shared by Rai and others, the protestors do not say “Hinduon” (Hindus) but Hindutva. Alt News got hold of the original video with better sound and video where it is confirmed that the protestors are actually saying Hindutva. The video was altered by miscreants. On listening to the altered video closely, the protesters are definitely not saying Hinduon. This video was uploaded on December 12, 2019. As per altnews, the video has been zoomed-in in the version that is presently viral as compared to the clearer version above. The audio quality of the video has significantly deteriorated in the viral version uploaded and downloaded multiple times on social media in a cyclic pattern.

In the original video, the entire gate is visible in the background, while it is not in the video which is presently viral.

Many other people also countered the claims of the viral video


Conclusion

The claim made that AMU Protestors said “Hinduon” instead of Hindutva in the video is false. Hence, it is misleading.
