Explanation

Asaduddin Owaisi, the president of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) and a four-time Member of Parliament, secured his fifth consecutive term representing the Hyderabad Lok Sabha constituency on Tuesday. He won by a margin of 3,38,087 votes, defeating BJP candidate Madhavi Latha.

Meanwhile, a viral video of AIMIM chief Owaisi’s news byte is circulating on X suggesting that Asaduddin Owaisi said, “We hope that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will become Prime Minister for the third time.”

The same viral video was shared on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) supporters.

What’s the truth?

We ran a reverse image search using the keyframes of the viral video and found the original video tweeted by ANI on May 25, 2024. The tweet states that “AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said, ‘We hope that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not become Prime Minister for the third time.'”

On Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s statement on Muslim reservation, he said, “He (Amit Shah) will end reservation for everyone; he will even end the Constitution.”

The same news was reported by many credible news outlets, such as The Tribune, Zee News, India Today, and Republic Bharat.

Based on this information, we can confirm that Asaduddin Owaisi has not said he hope Narendra Modi will become Prime Minister for the third time. In fact, he said, “We hope that Narendra Modi will not become Prime Minister for the third time.” The edited video was falsely shared on social media to misrepresent Owaisi’s statement.

Conclusion

Owaisi has not said he hope Narendra Modi will become Prime Minister for the third time; an edited video was falsely shared. He instead said that he hope Modi will not become PM for the third time.
