On August 15, 2021, TV9 Bharatvarsh ran a video of some men dancing with rifles in their hands. The news channel claimed this to be a video of Taliban troops celebrating after capturing Maidan, a region just outside Kabul. The video has thousands of views on all social media platforms.

TV9 Footage

Fact-Check:

Upon some research we found that the video is actually of a traditional dance done during weddings in Khyber Paktunkhwa, Pakistan. Several Pakistani media outlets also raised concerns on the misleading use of this video and journalists like Iftikar Firdous also took to twitter to criticize TV9 Bharatvarsh.

This news segment is therefore false and misleading.
