Fact CheckWe broke down the video into key-frames and performed a reverse image search using Google. This took us to a tweet from September 2022 by António Guterres, the secretary general of the United Nations. Guterres had tweeted a photo of a meeting Pakistan Prime Minister Shebaz Sharif, discussing the severe floods in Pakistan that occurred in September last year. His tweet had a reply that contained the same viral video. This establishes that the video is not recent and is at least four months old.
We also found Reddit posts of TikTok videos of the same incident uploaded in September 2022. One of the comments on the Reddit posts also suggests that this was possibly due to the severe floods in the country. Additionally, we found the same video uploaded on Facebook from September 6, 2022, which had a text superimposed on it that read, "So much fighting for the sake of one bag among the flood victims, may god have mercy on them". There are other similar videos from the same time where people can be seen getting into physical altercations over bags of food. To sum it up, a video that is at least four months old is being circulated as visuals of the economic crisis in Pakistan. The country is indeed going through economic turmoil with high inflation and low foreign exchange reserves, however, the video is from 2022.
Dear Mr. Antoni Guterres, have a look of these video. This is sindh, from where Bilawal Bhutto won the NA Seat and became foreign minister. You know what people are fighting for? Food. Bilawal and his party ruling sindh for 30 years. I would like to visit Bilawal house also pic.twitter.com/uhZNwDC3JZ— 😜 (@1on1____) September 9, 2022
