A shocking video of six men beating up a woman is widely being shared on the internet with a claim that the video shows how Muslims are oppressed in India.
The caption of the video read: “Muslims are oppressed in India and will continue to be oppressed if we do not protect them. It’s time to be unity. The Indian government will account! #ModiResignation”

According to the video, four accused have been arrested. Whereas the police personnel present at the spot are suspended because of inaction.
We also found that the same incident has been covered by Amar Ujala on May 22, 2020.
As per the report, there was a property dispute between the man, Ashok and his wife, Sushila.
Hence, the above information proves that a family dispute has been given a false communal twist.
