Fact Check:

The Logical Indian Fact Check team verified the viral claim and found it to be misleading. The viral image is from 2018.

We did an open keyword search during the initial investigation and found similar images in tweets dated back to 2018 and 2020. It means the viral photo is not recent.


On searching more, we found a video report of Neo News dated 13 November 2018 in which similar footage can be seen. According to the reports, due to encroachment and traffic problems around the Govardhan Parikrama marg in Mathura, the administration had decided to demolish the tombs. A total of seven Islamic shrines (Mazars) were demolished under this anti-encroachment drive. Not only this, but the authorities also destroyed five small Hindu temples.

According to the report of Dainik Jagran dated 12 November 2018, Police used force and thrashed the people who were protesting against the demolition of the tomb.

Our investigation found that the claim that shrines located in Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, were recently demolished by the Yogi government is misleading. The viral image is not recent but is from 2018, and it was destroyed under the anti-encroachment drive conducted by the government authority of Uttar Pradesh. Hence, the viral claim is misleading.
