Facebook ‘Fact Checkers’ Flags video uploaded by Himanta, terms it ‘False Information’

Aziz Khan shouldn't have kept a name resembling Pakistan: Himanta Biswa Sarma

Guwahati: Facebook 'Independent Fact-Checkers' has verified the claim made by Himanta Biswa Sarma about the pro-Pakistan slogans raised at Assam's Silchar Airport by the members of AIUDF upon arrival of its supremo Maulana Badruddin Ajmal as fake.

Facebook which was alleged to be favouring the ruling party by promoting hate speeches and fake news has now established its neutrality by this act.

Two days back Himanta had shared a video where he falsely claimed that the supporters of AIUDF were shouting Pakistan Zindabad. After fact check by Alt News, it was verified that the crowd was shouting Aziz Khan Zindabad and not Pakistan. The news was reported without proper fact-checking by two pro-Government portals called OpIndia and The Frustated India. It is to be mentioned that both the news channels are blacklisted by Wikipedia for allegedly spreading communal fake news.

When the media asked Himanta about this, he sidelined this in a lighter note by saying that South Karimganj MLA Aziz Khan shouldn't have kept a name resembling Pakistan.
