Father’s father i.e. Grandfather got Halala done. The grandfather turned out to be a bastard, refused to return the grandson’s wife. The wife also tasted the pleasure and the wife herself became a grandmother. Religion is one color many, that’s why no one leaves religion easily.
A 2:20-minute video purportedly showing an elderly person marrying his grandson’s wife and later the woman refusing to go back to his grandson is viral now. This video is shared with the claim that they belong to the Muslim community. The word ‘halala’ is seen in the viral posts carrying this video with such a claim. Many of the right-wing supporting Twitter accounts shared the video with similar claims accusing Muslims. Some of the posts with such a claim can be seen here and here.
#हलाला यही है मजहब की खूबसूरती…
अपने ही दादाजी से बीवी का हलाला करवाया। दादाजी को इतना मज़ा आया कि उन्होंने बीवी परमानेंटली ही दबा ली। दादाजी तो दादाजी, बीवी भी बेवफा निकली……
अजीब है ये रिवाज और धर्म जहाँ जिस्म ही सबकुछ है और लोक लाज कुछ भी नहीं !!! pic.twitter.com/VBpaK6cbq3

Grandfather enjoyed it so much that he married his wife permanently. Grandfather is grandfather, the wife also turned out to be unfaithful”. Some post in Hindi reads as “बाप के बाप यानी दादा से हलाला करवाया।दादा हरामी निकला, पोते की बीबी को लौटाने से ना कर दी। बीबी ने भी मजाचखा दिया व बीबी स्व दादी हो गई। मजहब एक रंग अनेक, इसी लिए कोई आसानी से मजहब नहीं छोड़ता।”
