Explanation

AIMIM’s Asaduddin Owaisi has been a four-time Member of Parliament from Hyderabad constituency since 2004, and this time his fight will be against Hindutva face Madhavi Latha. Madhvi Latha was the face of the BJP’s campaign against triple talaq.

Meanwhile, a 34-second viral video is purporting on X( previously known as Twitter), and in the viral video, we can see All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) party president Asaduddin Owaisi reciting the Shiva Tandava stotram, and we can see him reciting the full Shiva Tandava without any pauses and any kind of blabbering. Shiv Tandava Stotram is a Hindu hymn in honor of Lord Shiva. 

The same viral video was widely shared by the BJP and BRS supporters on social media and can be seen here, here, here, and here

WHAT IS THE TRUTH?  

We ran a reverse search using the keyframes of the viral video, and we found the original video posted on the Aimim-All India Majlis-E-Ittehad official YouTube channel on October 26, 2022. 

In this original video, Owaisi is heard saying, “Modi Ji, Is Bijapur a part of Pakistan? Bijapur is Karnataka’s heart; Bijapur is Karnataka’s history; and Bijapur’s Gol Gumbaz is Karnataka’s fine example of beauty.”

According to the above-mentioned original full speech video of AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi, he nowhere in his full speech recited the Shiva Tandava stotram. The viral video is digitally altered and fake, as we find out. 

Additionally, we also started searching for the viral video’s audio of this Shiva Tandava stotram, and using the keywords, we finally found the exact same audio in one of the video posted on Deep Trivedi’s official YouTube channel and in that video, we can see Aravind Trivedi reciting the same Shiva Tandava stotram. Aravind Trivedi is the same person who played Lankesh (Ravana) in the Ramayana TV serial. 

So accordingly, we find that the viral video is digitally altered, and Shiva Tandava Stotram audio was taken from some other video and has been added to the viral claim. 

CONCLUSION :

The AIMIM Asaduddin Owaisi reciting Shiva Tandava Stotram viral video was digitally manipulated and falsely shared. He nowhere recited Shiva Tandava Stotram in his video.
