Explanation

India conducted seven phases of general elections in 2024, spanning from April 19, 2024, to June 1, 2024. The electoral results were declared on June 4.

In this instance, a 34-second viral video depicts a large number of people celebrating. They are having fun on the highways and streets, waving flags, and taking pictures with their cell phones. Upon closer inspection, we can observe that the flag is green in hue and features a crescent moon and star.

This post is shared by the Sudharshan News Marathi with a claim stating, “While celebrating Maha Vikas Aghadi’s jubilation in Ward No. 2 i.e. Weston Chowk area of ​​Shrirampur, Muslim social workers waved the flag of Pakistan.” You can view a similar claim post here.

What’s the truth?

We conducted a pertinent Google keyword search before beginning our investigation. We also made use of the popular video’s keyframes. The incident took place in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra, specifically in the Shrirampur area, as stated in the tweet. However, upon closer inspection, we discovered that the entire flag is green, adorned with a white star and crescent. This indicates that Pakistan is not represented by this flag.

Additionally, the Pakistani flag has a green section with a star and crescent in it, separated from a white section.

We have also added a comparison image of the Pakistan and IUML flags for the reader’s reference below

With the use of all these details, it is now clear that the green flag in the widely shared video is actually the IUML banner, not the flag of Pakistan.

We have already covered many instances of the IUML flag being confused with the Pakistan flag, so it appears that this is not the first time.

Conclusion:

As a result, we conclude that the widely shared rumor of the Pakistani flag being flown in celebrations of Maha Vikas Aghadi’s victory by Sudharshan News Marathi is false.

Despite what the assertion implies, the flag being carried belongs to the Indian Union Muslim League, not Pakistan.
