A video is doing rounds on social media platforms showing a group of men eve-teasing two women at a bus stop. In the video, women can be seen spraying pepper spray on the men. This video is being shared on social media platforms with a communal narrative.
A Facebook user shared the video with a caption in Hindi that roughly translates to, “These jihadi goons were eve-teasing these girls. These girls broke the eyes of all three jihadis who fell on the ground. Hindus, give such education to your daughters who can teach lessons to anyone who tries to molest them. Not only essential items but in the purse, one should also carry acid and spray in the purse. Jai Shree Ram.”
(Original: ये जिहादी गुन्डे इन लड़कियो को द्देड़ २हे थे ,इन लड़कियो ने तीनों की ऑखें फोड़ दी अव यह तीनों जिहादी जमीन पर लोट रहे है। हिन्दुओ अपनी लड़की को ऐसी शिक्षा दो जो उनकी तरफ ऑख उठाये वह उसकी ऑख निकाल ले। पर्स में सिर्फ जरुरत के सामान ही नहीं बल्की तेजाब का स्प्रे भी रखना चाहिए। जय श्री राम)
