Fact Check

The claim is False.

NewsMeter performed a Google Reverse Image Search, which led us to a report published on the website 'BDC TV' on November 12, 2017. The team found the viral image published by the website. The image was published with a caption, "Students of Fatima Girls Inter College during the morning assembly at Daudpur Village in district Azamgarh"


The Fact Check team had debunked a claim on August 13, 2021, about a similar image. During the investigation, the team found that the image of the burqa-clad girls is from Fatima Girls Inter College.

In the viral post, it has also been claimed that the degrees of 100 girl students of Srinagar Medical College who raised the slogan "Pakistan Zindabad" have been canceled. Any such incident happening would have been big news. However, we did not find any reports about such incidents.

Meanwhile, we did come across several news reports by the mainstream media including The Print, News 18, and Jana News in which FIRs under UAPA were registered by the Jammu and Kashmir Police after a video surfaced of students "celebrating" Pakistan's victory against India.

It is therefore evident that the viral claim viral is False.
