Explanation

More than fifty farmers’ movements including Sanyukt Kisan Morcha, PKU (Shaheed Bhagat Singh), PKU (Ekta Sithupur), Kisan Mazdoor Morcha, Bharatiya Kisan Naujawan Union have been protesting for the past few weeks, insisting on various demands including guarantee of minimum support price and waiver of farm loans and cases against them on the Delhi border.

Meanwhile, the fourth round of talks held by farmers’ organizations with the Union government failed. So the struggle has intensified. A 28-second video is going viral on social media linking it with the current farmer’s protest. In the video, numerous Muslims are seen doing Namaz in a mosque; among them, we see a man who appears to be Sikh standing and praying. You can view related posts with similar claims here and here.
