A video of Samajwadi Party (SP) supporters cheering for the local district president Sajid Siddiqui by saying “Sajid Bhai zindabad” in Mumbai is being shared on social media with false claims that “Pakistan zindabad” slogans were raised.
The post reads: “#मुंबई में लगे #पाकिस्तान #जिंदाबाद के नारे… #ठाकरे सरकार में #सपा पार्टी के कोटे से मंत्री #अब्बू #आज़मी के सामने लगते रहे पाकिस्तान जिंदाबाद के नारे.”

Translation: “Pakistan Zindabad slogans were raised in Mumbai. Pakistan Zindabad slogans were raised in front of minister Abu Azmi, who has been selected in the Thackeray government through SP party quota.”

We also found the video by Abu Asim Azmi who confirmed that Pakistan Zindabad slogans were not raised at the platform. Azmi also urged netizens to not fall for fake news.

The video was shot when Azmi visited CST station to see off one such shramik special train on May 14 that was travelling to Uttar Pradesh with migrant workers. The caption misleading the location as Wadala station instead of CST.

Abu Azami also shared the photos on Facebook.
