A video is being shared on social media with a claim that it shows an Indian madrasa teaching children how to use arms and ammunition.
In the video, children wearing skull caps can be seen holding guns and practising their aim while a few adults tutor them about it.
The documentary named ISIL and the Taliban throws light on how ISIL’s central leadership works, the way they introduce young minds to their organisation and the tension between them and the Taliban.
The video was shared with a caption that said, "मदरसे में छात्र उच्च शिक्षा प्राप्त करते हुए...."
[Translation : Students pursuing higher education in madrasa.]
WHAT WE FOUND
On closely observing the viral video, we noticed the logo of Al Jazeera, a Qatar-based international media organisation, on the left-bottom corner.
On conducting a keyword search on Google using 'Children learning guns video Al Jazeera', we came across Al Jazeera's documentary from 1 November 2015 titled ISIL and the Taliban.
We found the viral clip on 1 minute and 42 seconds can be seen in the documentary from 45:53 mark. On comparison, we can find striking similarities, including the English caption.
The article published along with the documentary carried photographs of children learning how to operate guns and grenades at the ISIL military training in Afghanistan.
It also stated that the ISIL targets young children by subjecting them to videos from ISIL's Iraq operations along with hands-on training involving arms.
Evidently, the video is from Al Jazeera's 2015 documentary about Afghanistan's ISIL training and does not show visuals from an Indian madrasa.
