A video is getting viral on all social media sites. Users who shared this video are claiming that this video is from Hanuman Temple in Prayagraj, where a Muslim man is offering namaz. In this video, the young man can be seen sitting in the posture of Namaz.
Sharing this video, a user named “GAUTAM BHATT #Akhand-Bharat #Hindu Rashtra” wrote – “Prayagraj Civil Lines Jihadi offering namaz in the temple of Lord Shri Hanuman Ji and there the impotent Hindus kept watching no one drank his mother’s milk so that this jihadi could be driven away and this Hindu could fight for his brother Uncle Tau Mama Fufa Sabse Fayenge for the property but could not fight for his religion.” (English Translation)
Sharing this video from a verified Twitter account called UttarPradesh.ORG News, the caption- “#Praygraj: A video of a young man allegedly claiming to offer namaz at Hanuman Niketan, Hanuman Temple in Civil Lines, Prayagraj is going #Viral on social media. In the video, a young man with a beard is seen carrying his hands wrapped in a towel on his back to the ear and then prostrating”
Many other users are doing a similar claim-
To analyze the viral claim of the video the team of DFRAC searched on social media. We have found a video and a poster posted on the Twitter handle of Prayagraj Police. Prayagraj Police said in this post that the name of the person seen in the video is Vaibhav Tripathi. He is a resident of Colonelganj in Prayagraj.
In this video, Vaibhav Tripathi said, that he comes to worship in the temple every day. He is a devotee of Thakur ji. He comes to the temple and sits in Vajrasana and worships sitting in Vajrasana, which was considered by social media users as a posture of namaz.
After the clarification given by Prayagraj Police and Vaibhav Tripathi, it has become clear that namaz was not offered by any Muslim person in the temple. Therefore, the claim made by social media users is completely false.
