ISKCON Vice-President Radharamn Das shared a video of conversion from neighbouring Bangladesh, but AltNews’ Mohammed Zubair falsely claimed it’s an exorcism video.
ISKCON vice-president and spokesperson Radharamn Das on Wednesday (January 5) shared a conversion video, lamenting how the awful condition of Hindus in neighbouring Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan remain unaddressed.
Sharing the 2 minutes 19 seconds long video on social media platform Twitter, Shri Das wrote, “So much outrage on #BulliBaiApp created by an 18-year-old orphaned school girl, but no outrage for hundreds of Hindu girls & women who are forcibly lifted from their homes, raped, sold and converted in Bangladesh, Pakistan & Afghanistan.”
AltNews’ Mohammed Zubair did not himself fact-check the video but tried to fire his gun from someone else’s shoulder. Quoting an India Today fact-check, he tried to set the narrative that the video from Bangladesh was not about conversion but an exorcism. The moot question remained why Mohammed Zubair himself did not fact-check the video?
Das replied to Zubair, saying in the video, Maulvi could be explicitly heard saying there is no God worthy of worship except Allah.
“Transcript (0.35 sec onwards) Maulavi: Kali Ma kohiba (will you henceforth chant the names of Kali Ma)…..
Maulavi: Chant LA Ilah….(there is no God worthy of worship except [email protected]).
So called fact checkers job is to give cover to the dirty works done by his ilk.” Shri Das posted on Twitter.
Over three hours had passed on Monday (January 10) morning, and Mohammed Zubair has not replied. The copy will be updated once he replies.
This is not the first time when Mohammed Zubair has been caught washing the dirty linen of Islamists.
As reported by the Organiser in June last year, after being booked by UP Police for spreading fake & manipulated videos in the Ghaziabad Case, Alt News Co-Founder Mohammed Zubair deleted all his fake posts related to the case.
In June last year, Mohammed Zubair had circulated a muted video of the thrashing incident in Ghaziabad claiming Abdul Saifi was thrashed for not chanting Jai Shri Ram. Investigation revealed that it was a personal fight, and Saifi had made up that story on the insistence of one Samajwadi Party leader to get sympathy.
It’s a very standard toolkit of Zubair. In the name of fact-checking, he’ll clean the Islamists’ dirty linen. The same toolkit was deployed when multiple videos of Muslim chefs spitting in the food they were cooking had gone viral.
In one such claim, he said that the Muslim cleric was not spitting in the food but blowing air on the food to purify it.
