No, a naked girl did not attack media at Aurat March 2023
Clip shows a vlogger’s reaction to Aurat March Lahore
Claim: The caption of a video posted on Facebook claims that a naked girl attacked the media at the 2023 Aurat March in Lahore, Pakistan.
Fact: The caption has nothing to do with the video, which just shows the reaction of a video blogger, Malik Ali, to the Aurat March.
On 9 March 2023, Malik Ali, a video blogger, posted a video titled, “What happened in Aurat March, 2023?” and accompanied by the caption, “عورت مارچ میں ننگی لڑکی میڈیا پر چڑھ دوڑی، تفصیل جانئیے۔۔۔ [A naked girl attacked the media at the Women’s March; get to know the details here]” (archive).
The entire video — which is four minutes and 18 seconds long — shows Malik Ali speaking against the Aurat March, with the vlogger making some disparaging comments about the March’s organisers and participants.
The vlog was shared to a Facebook playlist called “Exposed!!!”, which has close to 130,000 followers and has “content to expose negativities prevailing in society”. It has already been watched almost 1,000 times.
Fact or Fiction?
Soch Fact Check watched the entire video but found nothing to support the title. In fact, the clip does not even have any footage from the Aurat March in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Hyderabad, Multan or any other city.
It just features Malik Ali’s speech against the Women’s Day events in different cities.
Moreover, when we ran the video’s thumbnail through reverse image search engines, the picture on the lower-left side was identified as a shot taken during Karachi’s 2022 Aurat March, which was held at Bagh-e-Jinnah, across Quaid’s Mausoleum near M.A. Jinnah Road.
Conclusion: The caption has nothing to do with the video, which actually just shows the reaction of a video blogger, Malik Ali, to the Aurat March.
