AIUDF Chief Badruddin Ajmal has threatened to sue an NGO for uploading a doctored video in its social media pages.
The video, which went viral in the social media has been checked various independent fact checkers like the Boom and India Today Anti Fake News War Room.
The fact checkers found the video to be doctored.
The NGO – Legal Rights Observatory (LRO) had uploaded the video in its social media pages claiming that Ajmal made anti-national statements.
“The video was released by an NGO called LRO. This doctored video was released with the intention of damaging AIUDF’s election prospects,” Badruddin Ajmal said.
“Some elements with vested interests are trying to derail the Congress-AIUDF alliance,” Ajmal added.
Ajmal alleged that parts of a speech that he had delivered ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections were merged in the doctored video.
Several news outlets, journalists, BJP members, RSS members, RW trolls followed by PM, channel headed by Himanta Biswa's wife, shared this clipped video ahead of Assam polls. Here is the video

“The doctored video says the Mughals ruled India for 800 years and the British ruled it for 200 years, and now Congress-AIUDF will make Assam an Islamic state. This is a fake video,” Badruddin Ajmal said.
