Investigation

To check the viral video, we searched the keyframes of this video on Google reverse image. We found this video uploaded on YouTube channel named Labbaik News on January 4, 2021. The location in the video was mentioned as Lahore. The description with the video read “Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi Chehlum | TLP Chehlum 2021” Khadim Hussain Rizvi.

On searching, we found that on 19 November 2021, Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) chief, Khadim Hussain Rizvi passed away at the age of 54. The ritual to complete 40 days of his death, Chehlum was held on 03 January 2021 near Masjid Rahmatul Lil Alameen on Multan Road in Lahore. The scene seen in the viral video is of this Chehlam.

We found many more videos of Khadim Hussain Rizvi’s Chehlum on YouTube. In these videos, the site of the viral video can be seen from other angles.

In this regard, we contacted the reporter of Pakistani news channel News 24 HD, Mohammad Kamran. He confirmed that “the video is from 2021 and is from Pakistan.”

After the controversial statement of Nupur Sharma, there have been demonstrations in many places in India. But the viral video is not of any such demonstration.
