Prayers and religious practices are not allowed in public places in China. A Uighur Muslim was brutally thrashed by a man from another community while offering namaz in a public place in China. If there was democracy there too, the life of the Chinese would have become difficult.
चीन में सार्वजनिक स्थानों पर नमाज़,और धार्मिक आचरण की अनुमति नहीं है।

The viral video about the man who was not allowed to perform namaz in public is shared with the claim “Prayers and religious practices are not allowed in public places in China. A Uighur Muslim was brutally thrashed by a man from another community while offering namaz in a public place in China. If there was democracy there too, the life of the Chinese would have become difficult.”
अब #गूंगे और अंधे हो गए 57 मुल्क क्यूंकि मामला चीन का है ना..?

What is the truth?
The agitated video which was being shared by several social media users, claims that Uighur Muslim was assaulted brutally for offering namaz in a public place in China. But he was surrounded by undaunted persons in the background of Thailand. And the video clip is shared with a false communal stance.
And the same video with different captions has been on rounds on social media mentioning Namaz and religious conduct are not allowed in China. Peace-loving people are tolerated only in India, where Uighur Muslims are brutally beaten by another community man while praying in public in China.
By searching the viral video keyframes with Google reverse image, and with screen grabs of the viral video identified as the incident happened in Thailand, reported in Thai news reports such as Dailynews, Matichon, E-chan dated 2020.
Taking a clue from the above report, the incident from Thailand, where an employee of a debt company was beaten up by his senior for allegedly mishandling the customers’ money and, finally, the assault happened because of a money issue.

Additionally, the visual is about the senior employee of a company’s debt collecting group accusing the person of cheating in front of other employees. The victim said that several such incidents had taken place in the past relating to debt collection.
Further pinpointing the flustering visuals is the 21-second-long video that shows the man sitting on his knees and getting kicked by another man. Later, the assaulter lifts the victim and continues to attack by kicking him repeatedly in his face.
Taking a cue from the E-chan Thai news report about the incident, it was mentioned with the headline “cyber police take the victim to report after being attacked by a brutal loan company”
Though this video refrained from showing the torture of Uighur Muslims in China, there are several news articles reporting about community violence in the country, and one such is listed below :
Here, from the above information, it is found that the brutal assault happened in Thailand, not in China. Therefore, it is false to claim that the viral video shows a Muslim man thrashed for offering Namaz in public place in China.
