A post is being widely shared on social media which features a set of pictures including a picture of a man serving biryani, a few medicines, and a cop.
It is being claimed that Muslims in Coimbatore are selling Biryani to Hindus laced with pills to make them impotent.
The caption in Hindi read: “कोयम्बटूर में “माशा अल्लाह” नाम से फ़ास्ट फ़ूड बेचने वाला मुल्ला 2 बर्तनों में बिरियानी पकाता था….
एक मुस्लिमों के लिए और एक हिन्दुओं के लिए।
हिन्दुओं के बर्तन में लड़के व लड़कियों को नपुंसक बनाने की टेबलेट मिलाता था ताकि हिन्दुओं की जनसंख्या वृद्धि को रोका जा सके …..
ये तो सिर्फ ट्रेलर है, असली फ़िल्म बहुत बड़ी है। सोचिए कितनी बुरी तरह घेर रखा है आपको जिहादियों ने। पता नहीं कैसे कैसे जिहाद चलाए जा रहे हैं हिन्दुओं को मिटाने के लिए, और हिन्दू है कि घोड़े बेचकर सो रहा है। कुछ लोग जगाने की कोशिश करते हैं तो उन्हें RSS और BJP का एजेंट बता कर साइड कर दिया जाता है।
*अभी भी समय है इनका सम्पूर्ण बहिष्कार करो। आज ही कसम खा लो कि आप इनसे कोई सामान नहीं खरीदेंगे।”
(Translation: “In Coimbatore, Mulla, who sells fast food under the name” Masha Allah “, used to cook Biriyani in 2 pots …. One for Muslims and one for Hindus. In the Hindu utensils, he used to add tablets to make boys and girls impotent so that the population growth of Hindus could be stopped ….. This is just a trailer, the original film is very big. Think how badly the jihadis have surrounded you. I do not know how the jihad is being carried out to eradicate the Hindus, and the Hindu is selling horses and sleeping. When some people try to awaken, they are turned to the side by calling them RSS and BJP agents. * There is still time to boycott them completely. Swear today that you will not buy any goods from them.”)

The picture of medicine in the viral post is actually from Sri Lanka. The picture was originally published in a report by Sri Lankan newspaper, The Daily Mirror dated May 02, 2019.
