What’s the truth?

We started our analysis with a pertinent keyword search on Google, which led us to X post by the Muzaffarnagar police.

According to the tweet, “The case pertains to the same community in which Ratanpuri police station has registered a case on 04.03.2024, under relevant sections and arrested 03 accused and sent them to jail. Advance legal action is underway by Ratanpuri police station.”

This makes it evident that the police do not believe the case has a religious component. It further suggests that the victim and the accused are members of the same Muslim community.

The details mentioned above make it clear that the viral video is being falsely shared among the public to sow conflicts and disharmony.

Conclusion:

In summary, there is no communal color to the viral video that purports to show a young Muslim man being physically assaulted by police. In actuality, the police claim that the same members of the Muslim community are involved in this case.
