PM Narendra Modi and the MP government are the targets of a sensitive and disturbing video that has gone viral. It depicts a group of people torturing a woman while hanging her on a tree.

Verified accounts on twitter, including Aafrin (“@Aafrin7866“) tweeted “This video is of BJP government in Madhya Pradesh. Look at the condition of daughters under Modi rule”. The tweet was made on Nov 23, 2023, which has received an about 109k views on X. The archive can be read from above.

@ShaykhSulaiman tweeted “WOMAN BEING BEATEN BY MEN IN INDIA” on March 9, 2024. Again, to support the claim made, he further made a tweet on March 13, 2024 sharing the same video.

What is the Actual Truth About this Video? : Fact

We discovered that this is an old video from the Alirajpur district, which is dominated by Adivasis. In June 2021, the woman was beaten up by her father and brothers for fleeing her husband’s home and going to a relative’s place. Her parents believed that this might have an impact on their social status.

We visited Times of India, which published an article on this incident on Jul 3, 2021, with the headline “Madhya Pradesh girl tied to tree, beaten by kin for running away from husband”.

An article was even posted by aajtak, which was published on July 2, 2021, which clarified all the details about this incident.

All of the accused individuals involved in the incident faced legal action. The incident is not recent and is a personal matter rather than being connected to the general, gender-biased mob lynching.
