Some bhakts claiming that Hans Raj Hans has not converted. How do they explain this then. Waiting for them to say that this is a deep fake. When they say that, I am ready to go in for a digital forensic analysis of this video.

Not only @BJP4India is Anti Muslim, they’re Anti SC/ST too. By Fielding, a Muslim candidate from an SC/ST seat is just plain discrimination. Hans Raj Hans , Kya kahega? Hopefully, our EC will look into this matter seriously.

Facts Check News: Ankit Lal, Author of India Social. Social Media & IT strategist, AAP tweeted a misleading video of Hans Raj Hans of Hans being converted to Islam; Lal suggested that this video was evidence of Hans Raj Hans converting to Islam.  

On searching for the authenticity of the video we found the same video on youtube Minhaj TV [Official], titled “Hans Raj Hans Pays His Tribute to Shaykh Ul Islam Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri On His 67 Birthday”. The video was uploaded on 19 February 2018.

This is not the first time when an allegation of Hans Raj Hans, conversion to Islam was made. Earlier in 2014.

Yuvraj Hans, son of Hans Raj Hans, said in 2014, “Our family was completely disturbed after we came to know of the report by online news Pakistani portal and a TV channel that my father had converted his religion in Lahore. I was shooting at that time. I called up my father and he, too, was stunned at the news. We did not know how the footage got spread and who is behind this.”

Hence, Ankit Lal tweeted a misleading video of BJP Candidate Hans Raj Hans of falsely suggesting of the latter being converted to Islam.
