‘Communal’ video clip spurs Gujarat election panel to order probe

The Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) of Gujarat on Saturday ordered the cyber crime cell of Ahmedabad to inquire into an anonymous video clip of communal nature making the rounds on social media, ahead of the assembly polls in the state in December.

“A complaint has been filed with the ECI regarding this and I have ordered an inquiry,” B B Swain, CEO, said.

The complaint was filed by a human rights activist and lawyer Govind Parmar, who claimed that the video clip fomented hatred between two communities and demanded a ban on its circulation. He also sought action against those who made the video.

The 1.15-minute video in Gujarati begins with the text: “Gujarat maa saanjh 7 pachi aavu thai shake chhe (This can Happen in Gujarat post 7 pm).” Next you see a young terrified woman walking briskly through deserted streets with Azaan (the call for muslim community members for prayers in the mosque) playing in the background. An elderly couple is seen worried, with the father pacing in the house and the mother sitting. An idol of Lord Krishna indicates that it is a Hindu household.

When the young woman finally reaches home, her worried parents jump in relief and embrace her. Her mother looks at the camera and says, “Surprised that this is Gujarat?” The father adds: “This was Gujarat 22 years ago. And this can happen again if they return.” To which the girl says, “It wont happen as Modi is here.” The video concludes with Gujarati words in saffron colour: Aapno Vote, Aapni Suraksha (your vote, your security).
