Explanation

Karnataka is the next poll bound state and it is quite evident as the election campaigns have been going on in full swing in the state. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had visited the state on numerous occasions lately and his last visit to the state stirred a controversy over an alleged security breach.

The Congress have been campaigning by targeting the BJP as the “40% Commission” Government and a have also used its “PayCM” campaign to attack the BJP.

Recently, we came across some social media posts that claim that Hindus have woken up and they are protesting against the BJP Government along with a video.

What’s the truth?

We took some keyframes from the video and did a quick search. In our search, we found out that the protest was held in Hingoli, Maharashtra. It was held by Shiv Sena on 5th February 2021. The protest was covered by news outlets and other youtube channels as well. See here, here and here.

 

From this frame, it is clear that the video from 2021 of a Protest by Shiv Sena against petrol, diesel and gas price hike is used to claim that Hindus are protesting against the BJP Government in Karnataka. Interestingly, the same video was earlier used to claim that the Bajrang Dal was protesting against the BJP’s farm laws.

Conclusion

The video that is shared with a claim that Hindus are protesting against the BJP is an old video from 2021 when Shiv Sena was protesting against the price hike of petrol, diesel and gas.
