What is the truth?: This episode of Zakaria's show 'Global Public Square' (GPS) was published on American news organisation CNN's website on 30 April, months before the G20 Summit was held in India.
Fareed Zakaria gave his take on India's economy and growth after visiting India in April 2023.
How did we find out?: We ran a reverse image search on Google and came across a similar six-minute video on CNN's website.
The episode is a part of GPS which was aired on 30 April after Fareed Zakaria's visit to India.
Upon matching the frames of both videos, we found similarities.
We also found the same video on Fareed Zakaria's Facebook page that was uploaded on 1 May.
It was uploaded with a caption that explained the political commentator's analysis, reading, "a bullish nation, brimming with excitement. It has some hurdles to clear, but he lays out a path for it to truly become an incredible India."
The Quint also reported on Zakaria's analysis on 1 May. It laid down key points from his episode.
What did Zakaria say?: On a episode of GPS on CNN, Zakaria gave his analysis after his recent visit to India.
He pointed out India's optimism in the face of global problems such as inflation and recession.
The journalist remarked on India's Aadhaar system, Jio, and infrastructure revolutions that could transform the country by bringing in crores of Indians who are still on the economic, social and political margins.
Zakaria also mentioned the inclusivity of India’s Muslims and women who remained societally and institutionally discriminated against in the country.
Conclusion: The old video is being falsely shared as Zakaria's analysis of India after the G20 Summit, which was hosted by India on 9 and 10 September.
