What’s the truth?

Our analysis began with pertinent Google searches, which directed us to a Facebook user’s page which has uploaded the same video.

Compared to the viral video, this one was a little bit longer with a timeline of 6 minutes and 26 seconds. Also, this video was published with the caption, “What is an unveiled woman doing with a bus helper during Ramadan?”

Watching the video, we can see that there is a verbal fight between the woman and the bus conductor. Those in their vicinity observe their back-and-forth arguments. A few minutes later, we witness the woman strolling and requesting rides from different auto drivers.

Unfortunately, nobody agrees to take her as a passenger. She then returns to the bus conductor, expresses regret, and boards the vehicle. As the video was about to end, we noticed that every person in it had a smile on their face as they faced the camera. This suggests how expertly everything had been organized and executed.

Additionally, we looked through the Facebook page and discovered that “Carton Show” was the user name along with an image of Valo 24. Further investigation revealed that the page identifies the author as a “video creator,” and the introduction states, “I am Camara Content Creator. Please follow me for more.” Also, the page has many such scripted videos by the same actors.

All the above information clarifies that the viral video stating that a Hindu woman is not allowed to travel in a bus without a burqa in Bangladesh is scripted.

Conclusion:

Thus we conclude that the viral claim stating that a Hindu woman not wearing a burqa was not allowed to travel by bus during the holy Ramzan in Bangladesh is a staged video shared with false narratives.
