Unverified Old Video Of Men Harassing a Girl Resurfaced With False Communal Claims: Fact-Check 

It is troubling to see a human rights activist such as Kenneth Roth being mislead and misused to promote such an out-of-context outdated video. There are rumours circulating about an old sensitive video that is not authenticated from several places. The video, which was started by infamous fake news peddler Abdulla Alamadi from the Gulf, depicts a bunch of young people harassing a girl in an isolated area. The video has gone viral with allegations that a female from a minority community was abducted by a Hindu mob and subjected to sexual harassment.

Verified accounts on twitter, including @Abdulla_Alamadi tweeted “A painful, brutal & disturbing scene among thousands, shows you how Muslims are humiliated in India without any active action from the gov. NO solution for Muslims except to defend themselves with every available way. Waiting help from Muslim govs. or others, is a waste of time.” on July 29, 2023. The tweet has received an about 790.1k views on X.

Several other accounts, including @BilalKareem, @KenRoth, @Bazingaaaa_a, @shuja_2006, @KashifArsalaan, @MogalAadil, @OmarAbbasHyat, @imMAK02, @ Delhiite_, @B5001001101 made the same claim that a muslim woman was assaulted and her clothes were torn in public by Hindu men and almost lynched her to death. A Muslim minor girl was gang raped by Hindus and later her video was shared and circulated by Hindu men. It was also claimed that a Hindu railway police force constable shot three muslim passengers to death. On the other hand, it was claimed that two Muslim Madrassa students returning home from market were stopped and beaten by Hindus. In support of Muslims, it was also spread that a Muslim was killed while rest of the five others survived from the mob lynching. A mosque was set ablaze and the imam was shot dead by Hindus. It was claimed that this is how the Muslims get treated by Hindus. The archive can be read from above.

What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact
