FACTCHCEK: “China Continues to Demolish Mosques in Xinjiang While Muslim Nations Remain Silent”

ANALYSIS: Misleading

FACT: A video is being circulated on social media with false claim in which some religious structure can be seen being demolished. The video has been shared with the claim that China demolished more than 10 mosques in Xinjiang recently. Uyghurs in the northwestern region of Xinjiang are being ordered not to allow their children to fast during Ramadan. But, there is no news of demolition of mosques recently.The news about mosques demolition is from 2020.That video is also available online from before 2019.

INTENT :Users including self proclaimed OSINT accounts spreading disinformation, misunderstanding they are helping India by spreading disinformation against Pakistan-China , but infact they’re hurting India’s OSINT and news creditability.
