AIUDF’s Badruddin Ajmal say India will become an Islamic nation.

An old video clip of Badruddin Ajmal’s election speech has been edited to mislead the viewers and stir religious controversy.

An old video clip of Badruddin Ajmal’s election speech has been edited to mislead the viewers and stir religious controversy.A 36 seconds video of Badruddin Ajmal from the AIUDF party is widely being shared on social media. He could be heard saying that India will turn into an Islamic state and no Hindus will be left here if they come to power. AIUDF is part of the Congress-led UPA alliance for the upcoming state elections in Assam.

However, we found that the viral video is an edited version of Ajmal’s speech made at Assam’s Barpeta district during the general elections of 2019. The doctored video has been made by clipping parts and merging segments of the original 15-minute long video.

In the original speech, Ajmal could be heard saying that Mughal Emperors had ruled the country for 800 years and did not dare to change the country to an Ismalic nation, and if they wanted to, they could have easily done it; there would have been no Hindu left in the state, and the whole nation would be filled with Muslims.

Furthermore, Badruddin Ajmal also clarified that his original speech had been edited to convey a wrong message. Hence we mark the claim as False.
