Explanation

On the 100th birth anniversary celebration of Shri Kshatriya Sevak Sangh founder Tan Singh, a function was organised and held at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi, on January 28, 2024. Minister of Jal Shakti, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and many other state ministers were present at the function. Many Politicians, Industrialists, officials and religious people from the Rajput communities also attended the function.

Meanwhile, a viral video is shared to claim that a huge crowd of Rajputs attended Tan Singh’s 100th birth anniversary in Delhi. In this viral video, we can see a massive crowd holding thousands of saffron-coloured flags, and crowd cheering sounds can be easily heard.

What is the Truth?

We ran a reverse search using the keyframes of the viral video and found that a similar video was posted on Instagram Page Maratha Samrajya on January 27, 2024.

In this video, they mentioned the video as Mumbai’s Maratha quota protest. So we additionally searched for more videos related to Mumbai’s Maratha quota protest, and we found many similar videos from the protest that can be seen here and here.

Similar news from this massive protest was also reported by the Times of India on January 27, 2024.

We also searched the location on a Google Street View map, and we found a similar Shivaji Maharaj statue and building with billboards on the map where the protest was held. The comparison of the viral video and Google Maps Street View can be seen below.

As we can see, the similar red-circled footpath that is visible in the viral video is exactly in the Google Maps street view. We also marked the billboard position that matches in the viral video and Google Maps with a green rectangle.

According to the above-mentioned proof, the viral video is found to be not from the Tan Singh’s 100th birth anniversary celebration in Delhi, but it’s actually from the Maratha quota protest, which is held in Shivaji Chowk Vashi.

Conclusion

The viral video is from the Maratha Quota protest; there has been no links to the Tan Singh 100th birth anniversary celebration.
