Amidst the enthusiasm for the Internation Yoga day, a video is being circulated on different social media groups with a caption: “जापान मे अपने राष्ट्र ध्वज के रंगोमे विद्यार्थीयोंसे सादर किया गया सूर्यनमस्कार प्रात्यक्षिक अवश्य देखीये|”
(Translation- Suryanamaskar performed in tricolour dresses by students in Japan. Must see)

The above video was shared by more than 5,300 Facebook users.

FACT CHECK

When the fact check team at NewsMobile did a fact check, we found that the video is real but the claim is misleading.
On putting the screengrabs on the video through Reverse Image Search, we found that the original video dated May 17, 2015, on PM Narendra Modi’s official YouTube channel.

The description of the video read: “PM Modi at the Community Reception & Yoga Event organised by ‘Art of Living’ in Mongolia”
The above information proves that the video is from Mongolia and not Japan.
