Explanation

The five-and-a-half-minute video features a Muslim man wearing a skullcap conversing with a woman. The man was seen removing the orange Hindu flag from behind the woman as they were speaking.

She is seen pleading with him to get off the flag in the interim. Unexpectedly, a second man appears, beats the Muslim, and takes the flag away. Holding the flag in his hand, he speaks and advises the Muslim man to act appropriately. We also see that he beats him with a stick.

This post is shared with a claim stating, “Muslim man threw Ram ji’s flag.” One can view a similar claim post here.

What’s the truth?

Using pertinent keywords as our starting point, our analysis brought up a Facebook page with the same man as in the video. The person goes by “Himanshu Jatav,” and according to his page description, he is a Delhi-based video creator. Also, when we looked at his page there were many such scripted videos.

We also created a comparison between the screenshot from the viral video and the user’s Facebook profile photo. Here, both individuals appear similar, and we’ve included a collage format for the reader’s reference.

When we dug a little deeper, we also found an Instagram handle by the same user namely, Himanshu Jatav. The user’s bio is described as an artist here. Also, when we looked at the page, we were able to see many such staged and prank videos.

The aforementioned details make it clear that the viral video is a skillfully produced and well-planned piece of content that is disseminated with false information to sow discord among the populace.

Conclusion:

In summary, the widely shared video that purports to show a Muslim man hurling Ram Ji’s flag is untrue and deceptive. The widely shared video is actually a scripted one rather than an authentic one.
