Fact Check

SouthCheck found that the claim is false. We found that the people seen in the video are wearing a jersey of the Indian Union Muslim League Arangadi.

On closely observing the video, we can see that the jerseys had Arangadi printed on them. Arangadi is a village in the Kasaragod district in Kerala.

Taking a clue, we searched for the social media account of the Indian Union Muslim League Arangadi and found that the same video was published on their Facebook page on June 29, 2024.

We also looked for other visuals and found people wearing the same jersey with Arangadi written on the front and IUML written on the left sleeve. Moreover, we can also see a crescent moon on the jersey.

We also compared the jersey with Pakistan’s jersey and found no resemblance between them apart from the green shade. 

Hence, we can ascertain that the viral video is of people wearing IUML jerseys and not Pakistani cricket jerseys.
