Did Pakistani woman show the power of hijab to maulanas on the occasion of Women’s Day? – Fact Check busts the claim
A video is going viral on social media. In this video, it can be seen that some maulanas are sitting on a chair, while a Muslim woman wearing a burqa passing nearby, suddenly start performing stunts. Social media users are taking a dig at maulanas and hijab by sharing this video.
Sharing this video, a user wrote: “A Pakistani woman showing the power of hijab to maulanas on the occasion of #WomensDay”
To fact-check the viral video, the DFRAC team first converted the video into multiple frames, then did a reverse search. We found this video uploaded on April 8, 2021, on a YouTube channel called Ultimate Fun.
The viral video can be seen in this video. The caption of this video states that it is a prank video. At the end of this video, it can be seen that the person wearing the burqa is not a woman but a man, and he makes such videos to entertain people. Many prank videos can be seen on his YouTube channel.
It is clear from the DFRAC fact-check that the video going viral is 2 years old and the person seen wearing hijab in the video is not a woman but a man and he keeps making prank videos. Therefore, the claim of social media users is misleading.
