According to a video that has gone viral, a Muslim man disguises as a Hindu sadhu and abuses Hindus in the holy city of Haridwar. The video depicts a sadhu abusing the Hindu community.

Verified accounts on twitter, including JIX5A (“@JIX5A“) shared the video and questioned that why this man hasn’t been arrested. She added that in the sacred city of Haridwar, a Muslim man pretended to be a Hindu sadhu in order to extort money from Hindus.

Many other users like Himalayan Ascension (“@Himalaya_ghost“) tweeted “Utk This bhuslim Javed Hussain acting as Sadhu is threatening Hindus. And using abusive words towards Brhamins and Hindu’s. And irony is this guy is asking for Bhiksha claiming as Sadhu in Harki Pauri Ghat Haridwar Uttarakhand. #Save Hindu pilgrimage sites. #Saveuk #Retweet“.

ANUPAM MISHRA (“@scribe9104“) tweeted that in Haridwar, “Baba Javed Hussain” is seen abusing Hindus while begging. Because these rivers and places of pilgrimage were made by Allah and His Messenger, Muslims have the right on all of those. He forwarded the video from the tweet post of Himalayan Ascension (“@Himalaya_ghost“).
