Explanation

India’s seven stages of general elections are slated to occur between April 19, 2024, and June 1, 2024. On June 4, 2024, the results of the vote-counting process will be made public. The first four rounds of the Lok Sabha election are already complete. A robust campaign is being run by the two major parties for the current election.

Here, a one-minute, twelve-second film depicts a sizable gathering. At the demonstration, individuals appear to be celebrating by waving flags and popping crackers. Amidst the other flags, a green flag featuring a crescent moon is also waved. This post is shared with a claim stating, “Pakistan flag at Uddhav Thackeray’s Shiv Sena rally. Glad Balasaheb Thackeray is not alive to see this scene and the downfall of the party. Hello Mr. Uddhav Thackeray, have you seen where you are bringing the party?! Even your father’s soul will not forgive you.” One similar claim post can be seen here.

What’s the truth?

We began our study by searching Google with pertinent keywords and viral keyframes. This directed us to a May 14, 2024, Rajkaaj News piece. It is titled “Islamic flag allegedly seen in Shiv Sena UBT rally, created ruckus on social media.”

According to the article, “the video being shared on social media, a rally of Shiv Sena UBT candidate Anil Desai is being shown from Chembur, Mumbai. A person is walking waving a green flag in the crowd present at the rally. This flag is being claimed to be an Islamic flag.”

We took this as a cue and looked at the viral clip more closely and found that the shared video doesn’t show Pakistan’s flag rather it’s the IUML flag.

Moreover, we have also attached the comparison image of the Pakistan and Indian Muslim League flag for the reader’s reference below.

All this information clarifies that the viral video from the Shiv Sena rally doesn’t show the Pakistan flag as the claim suggests.

Conclusion:

Thus, we conclude that the viral claim stating that the Pakistan flag at Uddhav Thackeray’s Shiv Sena rally is false and misleading. Moreover, the flags seen in the video belong to the Indian Union Muslim League.
