What is the truth?
While searching for the viral video spread by BJP supporters, “A woman tearfully told Rahul Gandhi that even children are not allowed to step out in Kashmir”, published on the Scroll website along with the video on August 25, 2019.
”On August 24, 2019, a group of opposition leaders including Rahul Gandhi, Ghulam Nabi Azad, and Sitaram Yechury, who were travelling to Srinagar, were not allowed to leave the Srinagar airport due to security concerns and were turned away. On the flight back to Delhi, a woman spoke to Rahul Gandhi describing the plight of Kashmiris.
”Even kids are not allowed to leave the house. My brother is a heart patient. We are under stress in every way,” said the woman, who was almost in tears. When the security guards tried to stop her from speaking, Rahul Gandhi held her hand and listened to her,” the news article said.
Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi shared this video posted by Arun Kumar Singh, a journalist of the News 18 channel on Twitter and said, “How long is this going to continue? This is one out of millions of people who are being silenced and crushed in the name of “Nationalism”.

For those who accuse the opposition of ‘politicising’ this issue: https://t.co/IMLmnTtbLb

For those who accuse the opposition of ‘politicising’ this issue: there is NOTHING more ‘political’ and ‘anti-national’ than the shutting down of all democratic rights that is taking place in Kashmir. It is the duty of every one of us to raise our voices against it, we will not stop doing so.”
On August 5, 2019, the woman spoke to Rahul Gandhi about the situation of people affected by the general lockdown in Jammu and Kashmir after it was bifurcated into two union territories.
The information spread by the BJP supporters along with the video that Kashmiri Hindus living abroad surrounded Rahul Gandhi while travelling in the plane and asked him a barrage of questions on why he opposes Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Kashmir issues is fake.
It is understood that the video was taken in a plane when MP Rahul Gandhi was returning from Srinagar during the bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir in 2019.
