A video has been shared on social media with the claim, “Jaish-e-Mohammed’s spirits elevated after Mamata Banerjee’s victory in West Bengal. They even took out a procession. Listen to #Jaish-e-Mohammed’s slogans raised at their terrorist camps. India you will die, Modi you will die, Hindus you will die…Pay careful attention on the religion of terrorism.”

The video has been shared by multiple Twitter users.

It is also widespread on Facebook.

Alt News has received fact-check requests for the video on its mobile application as well.

Old, unrelated video

We searched parts of the slogan on Google and found a report by DNA published on December 12, 2020. According to the report, the video is from the Balakot camp in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. This is the same place where the Indian Air Force had carried out airstrikes in 2019. The video shows sloganeering against India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The video was uploaded by several platforms under Zee Media. (1, 2, 3 and 4)

At least a five-month-old video has been falsely shared as JeM raising slogans against India after Mamata Banerjee retained power in West Bengal.

Alt News has debunked a plethora of misinformation related to West Bengal since before the start of the assembly elections this year.
