A violent video of some people beating others with sticks is going viral on social media. It can be seen in the video that a few people are barging inside houses and dragging people out and then attacking them.
Social media users are claiming that this is a video of barbaric nature of Muslims where they are beating the local Hindus in Alwar, Rajasthan.
However, Fact Crescendo found the claim to be false. This is a video of a family dispute and there is no communal angle to it.
What’s the claim?
Sharing the video, a social media user wrote, “Muslims entered the houses of Hindus in Alwar, Rajasthan and attacked them. Share it in all the groups. Bulldozer services need to be activated.”
Same video was also found to be viral on Twitter.
