“Extremist Hindu students are protesting today in a secondary school in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, where they demand the school administration to cancel prayer in the school and chant the slogan “Bharat Mata Ki Jai”, which means the Hindu god as they claim!!”

Soon, this video went viral with more than hundreds of likes.
Analyzing different keyframes of the video and applying reverse image search on them the DFRAC team found that this video is of the recent incident held in a Christ Senior Secondary school in Guna, Madhya Pradesh. According to ANI, “People gathered outside Christ Senior Secondary School in Guna earlier today in protest and chanted bhajans, a day after one student was allegedly punished for chanting ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ after the national anthem in the school assembly.” Comparing the background of both videos, it was found that both videos are of the same place.
Comparison of the screengrab
The real story was that when a student chanted ‘Bharat Mate ki Jai’ after the national anthem his class teacher made him sit on the floor for 4-5 periods.
According to the principal, Fr Thomas, “Students were going to house gathering after national anthem to select Capt & Vice Capt when one student chanted ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’. He chanted that as a joke, not patriotism. Disrespectful! They hold a disciplinary committee meeting to decide what to do next.”
Then, some parents and organizations were protesting outside the school after a student was reportedly punished over chanting ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai.’
Furthermore, many other social media users also have shared this incident.
Moreover, ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ is said by Indians to honour their motherland. It means, “’Long live Mother India’. It is not a Hindu slogan but a patriotic slogan.
Therefore, from this factcheck it is clear that the whole incident is totally different as presented by @India__Muslim. There was no demand from the school administration to cancel prayer in the school and chant the slogan Bharat Mata Ki Jai.
