All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday took digs at Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan over the latter’s fake propaganda about violence in Uttar Pradesh during the anti-CAA protests.
“Pakistan’s Prime Minister posted a video from Bangladesh, falsely claiming it to be from India. Mr Khan, you worry about your own country. We have rejected the wrong theory of (Muhammad Ali) Jinnah… We are proud Indian Muslims and will remain so,” Owaisi said in a strongly-worded statement in Hyderabad today.
Khan had on Friday shared two fake videos of security forces beating Muslims with the caption ‘Indian police’s pogrom against Muslims in UP’ on social media platform Twitter.
The videos turned out to be old footages of violence from Bangladesh.
“This is not from UP, but from a May 2013 incident in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The RAB (Rapid Action Battalion) written on the vests at 0:21s, 1:27s or the Bengali spoken, or these links would help you be better informed,” Uttar Pradesh Police said after doing a fact-check on the videos.
India’s Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar shared the screenshot of the later deleted post and said, “Tweet Fake News. Get Caught. Delete Tweet. Repeat”, using the hashtag ‘Old habits die hard’, in a direct attack at the Pakistani PM.
