Fake Indian Media Caught Red Handed

Zee News is back in the limelight for peddling fake news through a doctored video once again. This time the channel broadcast a video claiming that Pakistan Zindabad slogans were chanted in an election rally of Navjot Singh Sidhu in Rajasthan recently.The channel also tweeted a video in support of its claim. Its tweet read, “WATCH- Shocking! Pak supporters shout ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogan in Navjot Singh Sidhu rally.”
Within minutes of Zee News broadcasting its doctored video, the Congress reacted angrily as party leader Randeep Singh Surjewala posted the original video of Sidhu’s speech mocking Prime Minister Narendra’s claims on Make in India. Sidhu mimicking Modi had prompted Sikh supporters to chant slogans ‘Jo Bole So Nihal, Sat Shri Akal.’ It seems this was replaced with Pakistan Zindabad slogans by Zee News.Surjewala wrote, “Bhakt Channels have taken over prime positions in the Dirty Tricks Department of the BJP. First ’Fake News Factory’ of @republic & @timesnow spread Falsehood,now @ZeeNews has tweeted an absolutely doctored video of @sherryontopp!
Sharing with you Original Video- Sat Sri Akal!”
Gaurav Pandhi tweeted video with:
Shame on @ZeeNews for showing doctored video of @sherryontopp Navjot Singh Sidhu’s rally. They cleverly inserted an audio of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ into his Alwar rally vid, while on the original vid there is no such thing and you can clearly hear people chanting “Jo Bole So Nihal’

Punjab minister Navjot Singh Sidhu said on Monday he would file a defamation case against a television channel for allegedly running a fake video about slogans purportedly in support of Pakistan during his rally in Rajasthan’s Alwar district two days ago.He said the slogans were of ‘jo bole so nihaal’ and was shown as in favour of Pakistan in the video.“I am going to file a defamation case after consulting with my lawyer. I cannot compromise with the name I have earned,” he told reporters at the Congress office here.
Sidhu said he do not need to give any proof for loyalty towards India. Without clearly blaming the BJP, the Punjab minister said such things were done because his campaigning was getting “tremendous response”.
Targeting the Narendra Modi government, Sidhu said he had raised questions related to farmers, minimum support price, demonetisation at the rally.
