BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra shared a video and claimed that Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan in an election rally said, “Allah has decided, these merciless people will get killed… We will become Sharia… It takes somewhere to start…”
Friends, this is what the Aam Aadmi Party thinks. You also think a little… Everything will be decided by Allah only or you too will decide something?
Do you want to become Sharia or not?
It is an established fact that whenever the announcement for the general or assembly elections takes place, the intensity of the misinformation, disinformation and fake news seamlessly increases. The national capital is poll-bound and lots of misinformation have been called out by us previously. We got tagged to fact-check a video shared by the BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra, Film-maker Vivek Agnihotri and many others of a speech made by sitting MLA and candidate for the Okhla Assembly Constituency.
“अल्लाह ने तय कर दिया है की इन ज़ालिमों का ख़ात्मा होगा ..हम शरिया बनेंगे ..कहीं न कहीं से शुरुआत तो होती ही है ..”
AAP का अमानतउल्लाह खान
दोस्तों ये है AAP के विचार
अब ज़रा आप भी सोचिए ..सब अल्लाह ही तय करेंगे या आप भी कुछ तय करेंगे?
आप शरिया बनना चाहतें है या नहीं?? pic.twitter.com/v2nRfESBBF

This video is viral with multiple claims.

Video shared with a similar claim as of Vivek Agnihotri can be viewed here.
In the viral video, one can spot AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan giving a speech and making an appeal to vote for him and a watermark on the video which reads “Breaking News Express”. As we began to fact check the video shared by Sambit Patra, we first checked if the video is doctored. Since there was a watermark on the video, we first tried to check if there are any Facebook Page or YouTube channels with the watermark text. We first searched Facebook and found a page with the same name but there was not much information on the Facebook page to corroborate, also the video shared by Sambit Patra was not shared by these pages. Since we couldn’t get the same video on Facebook, we then searched YouTube and we found the same video on a channel with the same name as mentioned in the watermark.
The video published by the aforementioned YouTube channel is a longer version of the one shared by Sambit Patra. Notably, the same watermark can also be seen in the video.
After seeing the watermark and the longer version, we reached the conclusion that the video is not doctored. Now, we began to check if the claims shared by Sambit Patra and Vivek Agnihotri are true or not.
We heard the whole video and a transcript of the same can be read below.
The viral Twitter video starts from 3 minute 20 seconds and ends at 4 minutes 5 seconds, in which AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan says, “Inshah Allah jab Allah… Likhne wala to Allah hai na, Allah ne tay kar liya ki kaun badshah hoga, Allah ne tay kar liya kiski fatah hogi, Allah ne tay kar liya kaun zaleel hoga, Allah ne tay kar liya kisko izzat milegi… Ye to Allah ka ikhtiyar hai, bande ke ikhtiyar me hota to ab tak sabko muchal dete ye, kuchal dete, humaari kya haisiyat hai to Allah ki hai sab kuchh. Aur Allah ne faisla kar liya hai ki in Zalimon ko… in Zalimo ka patan hoga, ye khatm honge. Inke jo julm kiye hain, ye julm ka khatma Inshah Allah Okhla se hoga, Jamia se hoga. Hum Zariya (Medium) banenge Inshah Allah, aur kahin na kahin se shuruaat hoti hai. Aaj Shaheen Bagh ne poori duniya ko jagaane ka kaam kiya. Inshah Allah Okhla ki awaam vote ke jariye poori duniya ko jagane ka kaam karegi.”
English Translation: Inshah Allah… When Allah has decided… Allah writes our fate… If Allah has decided who will be the king, If Allah has decided who will win, If Allah has decided who will be insulted, If Allah has decided who will get respect… This is on Allah to decide, we cannot decide that, if it was in their hands, they would have mashed us, what we are before them, Allah is everything. And Allah has decided that these merciless people (BJP and others) will be destroyed, they will end. The sins they have committed, their sins will end at Okhla, it will end at Jamia. We will become medium (Zariya)… Inshah Allah… and it does start from somewhere. Today, Shaheen Bagh is waking the whole world. Inshah Allah, the people of Okhla through their votes will do the same.
After hearing the whole audio at slower, faster and normal speeds, we reached the conclusion that the video shared by Sambit Patra, Vivek Agnihotri, and many others is ‘Misleading’ and AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan didn’t say “We will become Sharia” but “We will become medium (Zaria).
