A 5-year-old video of Italian OM Giorgia Meloni has gone viral. Giorgia Meloni is heard stating in the video, “Salvini claims Islam is incompatible with the constitution. Ask him for clarification, but I feel Islam is incompatible with our beliefs and civilization, as evidenced by what happens in Islamic centers. This does not imply generalization, but there is a cultural contradiction.”
A video of Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni became popular on social media on the 17th and 18th of December. According to the video’s subtitles, she was heard declaring that Islam is incompatible with European ideals and culture.
Islam is being propagated in Italy with the help of Saudi Arabia, which has Sharia law. Meloni goes on to suggest that Sharia law is incompatible with European ideals and culture.
What is in the Giorgia Meloni viral video?
Many media outlets stated that her statement occurred after her party, The Brothers of Italy, conducted a recent political festival in Italy, where UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Elon Musk were also present.
Several Indian media outlets, including WION, Hindustan Times, Mint, NDTV, and Times Now, made the same assertions.
NDTV utilized an X post embedded from a username called Geopolitical Kid to claim Giorgia Meloni’s statement came during a political event hosted by her party.
We discovered that the original video was posted on YouTube in 2018 after searching using the keywords and comparing it to Meloni’s viral video clip.
Meloni was referring to a previous statement made by another right-wing politician, Matteo Salvini, in that video.
Salvni stated, about the Cologne mass sexual assaults and the Berlin terrorist attack, that Islam is incompatible with European principles. Salvni is the Lega Nord party’s leader in Italy.
While Giorgia Meloni’s popular video is right in rough translation, the video and comment are not recent. They are from 5 years ago, not from Meloni’s party’s most recent political event.
The video has raised tensions among the Islamic population of Italy and other parts of the world.
