Patna: The families of three Araria Muslims charged with raising pro-Pakistan slogans and allegedly seen in a viral video said they have given police an original copy of the video Saturday, which shows the men actually raising pro-RJD slogans”.
The families said the slogans in the viral video — “Pakistan zindabad” and “Bharat tere tukde honge” — were either in the background or were superimposed. The original video of the Araria rally has also surfaced on YouTube and it shows the three men shouting, “Katno kariyo baap baap, lalten chhaap (However hard opponents try, the RJD will win).”
However, in the viral video, now turned out to be fake and doctored, anti-India slogans can be heard but persons shouting the objectionable slogans are not seen. Interestingly, one does not need to have a technical knowledge to judge and merely by comparing the fake video with the original it can be found out how the objectionable slogans were superimposed..
The original video exposes once again how lies, fake news and videos are created and circulated to spread hatred and portray Muslims anti-National.
The analysis of the video based on which Bihar police arrested Sultan Aazmi and Shehjad had earlier showed that it didn’t seem to have lip sync. To ascertain whether the audio and video are in sync, Altnews examined individual frames from the video against the audio waveform.
"Even a casual look a the video will make it apparent that there are serious issues with lip sync in the video. We analysed the three videos using an audio editing software called Audacity. What is observed consistently across all the three videos is that in two spots in the video, the volume or the audio level is ZERO", AltNews reported supporting its claim with graphics, audio waveforms and images.
"The same lack of volume can be seen when the audio is analysed using Spek which is an acoustic spectrum analyzer software. The image generated by Spek can be seen below. The two distinct spots with zero audio level is even more apparently in the waveform generated by Spek", the portal, which had earlier unearthed many fake news and videos, claimed.
Ironically, doubts about the veracity of the doctored video were also raised by newly elected MP Sarfaraz Alam, RJD leader Tejaswi Yadav and other media groups. However, allegedly paying heed to the BJP leadership, the state police arrested the three Muslim youths seen in the video.
Interestingly, soon after the BJP candidate was defeated in Araria, Union Minister Giriraj Singh tried to give it a communal colour by saying that Sarfaraz Alam's victory will make Araria a terrorism hub. “The RJD has started a new political culture for its political ambitions. They have spawned an extremist ideology which is a danger not only to Bihar but also to the country in the coming days. It will become a hub of terrorism,” he said.
Hitting back at Giriraj Singh, former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi said the BJP headquarter is actually a hub of terrorists. “Giriraj Singh has lost his mind after suffering the resounding defeat. Their slogan- Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi has been blown away. They have lost both in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. They have lost both the seats in Uttar Pradesh. People of Araria have taught BJP a lesson and they must rectify their strategy. He should take back his comment and apologise to the people of Araria, else they will never forgive BJP,” Rabri Devi said.
