A video is shared across social media platforms with several questions appended to it. The posts that have shared the video has a description “32,000 girls converted to #Islam, sold as #ISIS slaves and now in Jail or buried in sand:This is #TheKeralaStory”. The comments section and the quoted tweets are flooded with several questions like ‘is the video true or fake’, ‘is the lady in it a Keralite?’, ‘how could she manage to capture a video when in Afghanistan?’ and so on.


What is the truth?

The movie starring Adah Sharma is directed by Sudipto Sen and produced by Vipul Amrutlal Shah under the banner of Sunshine Pictures talks about women from Kerala joining in ISIS.

And some of the posts are shared without the movie name further raising the confusion.
