Video Of Ladakh Protestors Seek Statehood And Constitutional Safeguards Circulated With False Claims: Fact-Check 

Pakistani accounts are circulating a video purporting to show a large gathering of Ladakh people demanding their independence and freedom from India and the Narendra Modi regime.

Verified accounts on twitter, including @IntelPk_ tweeted “#Breaking:- Ladakh witnesses massive protest, demands freedom from “Modi Regime” Indian Government. #Kashmir #India” on Feb 5, 2024. The tweet has received an about 32.4k views on X.

Several other accounts, including @ashoswai made the same claim that the crowd shows massive protest in Ladakh demanding freedom from India and Indian government. The archive can be read from above.

What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact

The truth is that these people from Ladakh are demonstrating for Ladakh Statehood. Ladakh’s inclusion in the sixth schedule of the constitution, which grants it a tribal status, locals’ employment resservation, and one parliamentary seat each for Leh and Kargil. It is unrelated to independent movement and protest.

We visited abp live, which published an article on this incident on Feb 6, 2024 with the headline “लद्दाख में पूर्ण राज्य की मांग क्यों हो रही है, कितने लोग आंदोलन कर रहे हैं, क्यों हंगामा बरपा है?”. Further, we also checked The Hindu, which posted on the same incident on Feb 3, 2024 with the heading “Ladakh protesters seek Statehood and constitutional safeguards”. It added “A record number of people in Leh participate in protest to demand Statehood jointly organised by the Leh Apex Body and Kargil Democratic Alliance”, which gives more clarification about the incident. Deccan Herald shared the same photo in an article which says ” Ladakh, which has over 97 per cent of tribals, is demanding it be brought under the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution to protect its land, culture, and identity from being commercially exploited”. The headline of the article is “Modi government must allay fears of locals in Ladakh”, which was published on Feb 7, 2024.

D-Intent’s Fact-Checking Results:


Pakistani Propaganda accounts are circulating videos with false claims to set their anti-India narrative. A video of a huge crowd from Ladakh is being circulated by Pakistani accounts claiming that the people of Ladakh are demanding freedom from India and the Narendra Modi regime. It is a fact that these Ladakh people have been fighting for Ladakh’s statehood. The addition of Ladakh to the sixth schedule of the constitution, which grants it a tribal status, job reservation of locals, and one parliamentary seat each for Kargil and Leh. It is not at all related to independent movement.


Fact : Fact is that these people from Ladakh are protesting for Statehood for Ladakh. The inclusion of Ladakh in the sixth schedule of the constitution, thus giving it a tribal status, job reservation for locals, and a parliamentary seat each for Leh and Kargil. It has nothing to do with independent movement.
