New Delhi (Vishvas News): A video going viral on social media claims that the person in the video is a Pakistani journalist. In the video, the person can be seen praising Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

When Vishvas News investigated we found that the person in the video is not a Pakistani journalist, but Harshvardhan Jain, an Indian motivational speaker.

Claim

Facebook user Ganesh Chethana Gowda uploaded the video on November 22, 2020 in Kannada, writing, “ಪಾಕಿಸ್ತಾನದ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತ ಮೋದಿಯವರನ್ನು ವರ್ಣಿಸಿದ ರೀತಿ…” which translates into English, “Pakistani journalist talking about Modi…”

Investigation

After watching the video properly, the social media handles by the name Harshvardhan Jain were clearly seen.

Vishvas News extracted screengrabs of the video using the InVID tool and search the screengrabs on Google using the Google Reverse Image Search tool with the keyword “Harshvardhan Jain”. During the search, we found the original video uploaded on the YouTube channel named Harshvardhan Jain on August 14, 2020.

Harshvardhan Jain is a motivational speaker, business management consultant, and leadership coach, according to Harshvardhan Jain’s YouTube channel as stated in ‘About Us’ and his ‘Instagram profile’. He hails from Jaipur as per his profile.

We also found Jain’s personal website and other social media handles.

We then directly contacted Harshvardhan Jain’s office. His assistant Trilok Sharma told us, “This claim is false. The video is not of any Pakistani journalist, but of Harshvardhan Jain. Harshvardhan Jain hails from Rajasthan and is a well-known motivational speaker. ”

At last, we performed the social scanning of the Facebook user Ganesh Chethana Gowda who shared the video with a fake claim. We found that the user is based out of Karnataka.

Conclusion: When Vishvas News investigated the viral post, it was found that the person in the video is not a Pakistani journalist, but Harshavardhan Jain, an Indian motivational speaker.
