Truth

No, the claims made on the viral are misleading.

When we used the keyframes of the viral video in a reverse image search then we found out the original full video of Kisan Leader Rakesh Tikait addressing the Kisan Mahapanchayat at Muzaffarnagar.

In this complete video if we look from 10:36 minutes of the broadcast we can see the viral version of the Kisan Leader Rakesh Tikait addressing the Kisan Mahapanchayat at Muzaffarnagar.

In his version, Rakesh Tikait is saying

“इस तरह की सरकारें अगर देश में रहेंगी तो दंगे करवाने का काम करेंगी | पहले भी नारे लगते थे ,अल्लाह हु अकबर हर-हर महादेव यह  नारे लगते थे| अल्लाह हु अकबर और हर-हर महादेव के नारे इसी धरती से लगते थे |यह नारे हमेशा लगते रहेंगे यह दंगा यहाँ पर नहीं होगा |यह तोड़ने का काम करेंगे और हम जोड़ने का काम करेंगे , किसी गलतफहमी में ना रहना यह देश हमारा है,यह प्रदेश हमारा है और यह ज़िले हमारे हैं |”

The translation of this version means that “If such governments remain in the country, they will work to cause riots. Earlier also, slogans used to be used in the rallies, Allah Hu Akbar Har Har Mahadev these slogans used to be raised from this earth. These slogans will always be raised, this riot will not happen here. This will work to break you and we will work to unite, do not be in any misunderstanding, this country is ours, this state is ours and this district is ours.

Few media houses reported the same about this speech –

Dainik Bhaskar wrote मुजफ्फरनगर में किसान महापंचायत: राकेश टिकैत बोले- यहां अल्लाह हू अकबर और हर-हर महादेव के नारे लगते रहेंगे; योगेंद्र यादव ने बताए- योगी सरकार के 5 पाप

UP Tak –

 

 

In our investigation, we also saw several tweets of people with the complete video. In these tweets, several people pointed out that Rakesh Tikait said that the farmers’ movement since the time of Mahendra Singh Tikait has used both the slogans as a sign of religious harmony.

Thus in our investigation, the claims made on the viral video were found to be false as not only Allah hu Akbar slogans were raised but also Har Har Mahadev slogans were also raised from the stage.
