  1. ‘Ladki hu, lad Sakti hu’ inspired girls to beat eve teaser!

News: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra launched a program named ‘Ladki hu, lad Sakti hu’, focusing on women and women empowerment in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh. A video showing a group of girls thrashing some men with sticks has been circulated on social media. It claims that girls were inspired by Priyanka Gandhi’s new campaign. In the clip, girls were covering their heads and faces with cloth.

Fact-based news: While the video was indeed from Uttar Pradesh, it is over 3 years old. The same video was posted by The Times of India, on 10 December 2018 stating that these students were eve-teased by the man. The school authority was ignorant towards the repeated complaints of girls. Therefore, students and teachers were forced to take such action. Moreover, Congress was launched in November 2021.

Against the backdrop of these events, a video of some Sikh bikers was raising slogans like Khalistan Zindabad. As the video went viral, the users hinted this video is from the same day and place where PM Modi’s convoy was stopped.

Fact-based news: The video is certainly not related to Modi’s recent Punjab visit. Several Facebook hints that the original video is from the occasion of Shahidi Jor Mela. It was Kesari march in Fatehgarh sahib. The Shaheedi Jor Mela is held every year from December 25 to 27 in memory of Guru Gobind Singh’s son, Baba Zorawar Singh, and Baba Fateh Singh.
