While the video in question has not been tampered in anyway, the woman seen in the video is not New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, but US Representative Tulsi Gabbard.
Gabbard had shared the video on her official social media handles on 11 August on the occasion of Janmashtami.
She tweeted: “To all celebrating around the world, I want to wish you a very Happy Janmashtami! May we always be blessed with remembrance of Sri Krishna, His unconditional love, and His transcendental appearance in this world. Jai Sri Krishna!”
Tulsi Gabbard is an American politician of the Democratic Party serving as the US Representative for Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district since 2013. Gabbard, who represents a constituency in Hawaii, is not of Indian descent and neither of her parents are Hindu, but she practises Hinduism.
A comparison of facial features of the New Zealand PM and US Representative made it clear that the woman in the video is not Jacinda Ardern in anyway.
The New Zealand PM recently paid a short visit to Radha Krishna Temple in Auckland on 6 August.
Evidently, a video released by Tulsi Gabbard is being falsely attributed to New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
