Amit Shah Viral Video: Delhi Police Special Cell Lodged An FIR Over Doctored Clips On Reservation Issue

The Delhi Police Special Cell filed an FIR on Sunday after receiving a written complaint from Home Minister Amit Shah stating that a doctored article featuring him regarding the reservation issue is being circulated on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

The Delhi police have registered the FIR under sections 153, 153A, 465, 469, 171G, and 66C of the IT Act, and arrests are expected to take place nationwide.

The Ministry of Home Affairs stated in a written complaint that it has discovered doctored videos circulated by Facebook and Twitter users. The complaint also mentioned that a report containing details of links and social media handles, which are the sources of these videos, was attached. The case is being investigated by the Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations (IFSO) of the Delhi Police Special Cell.

Amit Shah, during a public meeting on April 23 at the Vijaya Sankalp Sabha in Telangana, stated that the BJP will repeal the unconstitutional Muslim reservation when it comes to power in Telangana.

Home Minister Amit Shah said,

“I want to say this: if the BJP forms a government, then this unconstitutional Muslim reservation will be abolished. These rights belong to SC, ST, and OBC, and they will be given to them by abolishing Muslim reservation.”

The BJP alleged that the video was altered to show Shah promising to scrap reservations for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. The BJP stated that the original video showed Amit Shah discussing the removal of the four percent “unconstitutional” reservation for Muslims in Telangana.

The BJP’s complaint said,

“Union Home Minister Amit Shah Ji did not deliver any word against the reservation for Scheduled Castes (SCs), Scheduled Tribes (STs), and Other Backward Classes (OBCs), and tampering of the original speech was done by the social media activists of the Congress party for their political gains and to cause immeasurable damage to the BJP in the forthcoming elections in Andhra Pradesh and throughout India.”

BJP spokesperson Amit Malviya alleged that the Congress is spreading the doctored video, which has the potential to cause widespread violence in the country. Mr. Shah had talked about whether the unconstitutional reservation on the basis of religion would reduce the share of the SCs/STs and OBCs.
