Over the last few weeks, a video which shows a group of Muslim women singing Ram bhajan is being shared widely, claiming that this happened in a mosque in the Middle East.
The video, which is around 57 seconds long, resurfaced in the wake of the Supreme Court's recent verdict on the Ayodhya Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute. The video was shared with the false claim that these women sang Ram bhajans at a mosque in a Gulf country.
In contrast to the claims, a simple Google search with relevant keywords reveals that this has been fact-checked before. This video initially surfaced with the same false claim in 2017. After the recent verdict by the Supreme Court, the video has been doing the rounds again.
The burqa-clad women seen in the video are, in fact, devotees who attended an inter-faith congregation in November 2012, which took place at Prashathi Nilayam, an ashram of Sathya Sai Baba in Andhra Pradesh's Puttaparthi town. This was uploaded on their YouTube channel, Radio Sai Global Harmony, at the time.
It was also earlier confirmed that the women seen in the video are Muslim. However, the original video shows various bhajans in multiple languages being sung at the event, contrary to the claims being made.
The same video is now being shared with the false claim that these women sang Ram bhajans at a mosque in a Gulf country.
