An old video that the user shared shows some people hitting a woman with sticks. The victim, a Dalit woman, was allegedly beaten up by Hindu upper caste individuals, according to a video that an user shared with false information.

The twitter user @India__Muslim tweeted “A Dalit girl is severely and mercilessly beaten by a group of Hindu extremists and members of the extremist Hindutva organization. India is the only country in the world in which the extremist Hindu wing continues to commit all types of gross violations of human rights, especially against Muslims and Dalits.” regarding the video on Jan 30, 2023. The tweet has received an about 164.9k views on X.

Several other accounts, including @RajeshBiharwala made the same claim that some Hindu upper caste people tortured a girl belonging to Dalit caste for taking a bath in the river in UP. @ShaykhSulaiman tweeted “INDIAN WOMAN BEATEN BY ANOTHER MAN” on March 10, 2024. The archive can be read from above.

The same old vdeo once again got resurfaced on the social media recently in the year of 2024. @tabishkhanss claimed that the Dalit girl bathed in the river and thereafter, the girl was subjected to torture by Hindutva goons for disrespecting the river’s sanctity. The tweet was made by the user on Jan 26, 2024. Many other accounts, including Ali Sohrab shared the same old sensitive video on X recently and claimed the same.

What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact

In actuality, that is an outdated video from 2021. The incident, which occurred in Madhya Pradesh, involved the torture of tribal women (cousins) in full public view by their family members because it appeared that they were speaking to their maternal cousins, upsetting the family. This had nothing to do with the victim’s or accused’s caste; rather, it was a personal family feud. 

We visited Ndtv, which published an article on this incident on July 4, 2021 with the headline “Madhya Pradesh Shocker On Camera: Women Beaten With Sticks By Family”. This article clarified about the old incident in detail.

Anti-India propaganda spreaders sharing old video with false claim to target India and setting their agenda on caste. A woman was shown being beaten with sticks in an old video. An untrue video was shared by someone who claimed that higher caste Hindus had beaten up the victim, a Dalit woman.
