Fact Check: Scripted ‘Awareness’ Video Viral With Fake Communal Claim

A video is being widely shared on social media in which a group of friends can be seen celebrating a lady’s birthday.  The video shows a man spiking the cake after cake cutting as the women got busy clicking selfies and the women feel drowsy after having the cake. The video also shows men taking them to the room.

This video is being shared with a claim that the men in the video are from minority community who spiked the food. The caption associated with the clip reads, “*ये मुल्ले आपके दोस्त है तो देख लो जिहाद कैसे करते है* जिहाद गजवा ए हिंद बेहोश करके सेक्स क्लिप निकालते है फिर आपको बनाते है सेक्स स्लेवरी, धर्म परिवर्तन और जो आप सपने में भी नही सोच सकते *ल़डकियों बच के* बहुत देर हो जाए उससे पहले जागो.”

(English translation: If these Mullahs are your friends then see how they do jihad. ‘Jihad’ ‘Gazva-e-hind’. They will sedate you and then take out your sex clops and then make you sex slaves, change your religion and everything that you can’t even dream of. Girls beware before its too late.”)

Fact Check

NewsMobile did a fact-check and found the claim to be fake.

On breaking the video into several keyframes using InVid Tools and doing a Google Reverse Image Search, we found that the same video was uploaded by a YouTube channel on December 13, 2021. In the video uploaded on this channel, there is no mention of ‘Jihadi.’

We further found that the same video was uploaded by a verified Facebook page of Sanjjanaa Galrani. The bio of the page read, ‘I do share videos and scripted dramas to create awareness.’

The video was shared with a caption that read, ‘Be careful. Thank you for watching! Please be aware that this page features scripted dramas and parodies as well. These short films are for entertainment & educational purposes only!’

Thus, it is certain that a scripted video made for the sole purpose of awareness is being shared with a false communal narrative.
