Protests against the centre’s farm bills sparked violence in the national capital on January 26 after some groups of protestors deviated from the pre-decided course during the tractor rally. This subsequently led to several false claims attempting to portray that the demonstrators replaced the Indian national flag atop the Red Fort with Khalistan and Sikh religious flags.

In the latest spree, a video of a group of Sikh men with Khalistan flags walking on the Indian national flag has been linked to the Republic Day tractor parade.

Actor Kangana Ranaut was among those who amplified the video.

“There is a time and place to show patience. HM’s (Home Minister) calmness is not what was needed yesterday,” wrote Twitter user @Ankita_Arya suggesting that the video was shot in India.

From the Facebook account of one Rinkel Poswal, the video received 57,000 shares.

It has also been shared with a Marathi caption indicating that the video is from India.

Video from the US

A cursory look at the video itself raises doubts because the trucks visible in the background do not look like Indian trucks and the location also does not resemble places in India.

The username ‘amanvir_singh5’ is faintly visible on the top left corner of the video. He is a TikTok user based in the United States. We accessed his TikTok profile on Tor web browser. He had uploaded the clip on January 26.

Singh has uploaded another video from the event where Indian national flags were burnt and desecrated. In the second clip, two dogs are pulling and tearing the flag.

Searching for his name on Twitter led us to a tweet that gives the address of the place where the incident took place.

We looked for the address ‘7609 Wilbur Way, Sacramento, CA, USA 95828’ on Google Maps and found that the video was indeed shot here.

White and blue coloured water tanks can be spotted in front of the white building.

At another instance, we can spot a tree, a fence and the same white building in that order.

A video of Khalistan supporters desecrating the Indian national flag in California, US was falsely claimed to be from India.
