Research, Analysis and Fact-

As soon as the video came to our knowledge, we tried to find out if the claims are true or false. We did a reverse image search of some key frames from the viral video on Google and found a post/tweet (archived) including the same video. The post was made by an Islamabad-based journalist named Azhar Syed, from the post we got to know that the victim’s name is Anwar Mallah, we dug the incident further to verify the claims made by the journalist.

We found a news report published by Pakistan-based media Geo TV Urdu (Archived ) As per the report, the deceased has been identified as Anwar Mallah, who was shot dead by his opponent group. The deceased had an enmity with Amir Malah. This incident is from the Chah Chora area of Hafizabad, Pakistan.

According to the police, the accused fled after the shooting, so far no accused has been arrested, but raids are being conducted to arrest the accused. Hence the victim’s name is Anwar Mallah and does not belong to Hindu community.
