Fact Check: Video Of Man Being Beaten In Haryana Viral As That From Rajasthan

On the occasion of Eid on May 3, 2022, communal clashes erupted in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. The police force was used to bring the situation under control and internet connections were also terminated.

In the above context, a video of a man being severely beaten is being shared on social media with a caption claiming that it is of Jodhpur where a Hindu man was beaten by Muslims.

The caption associated with the video reads, “काँग्रेस पार्टी के मिया गहलोत ने आज जोधपुर का इंटरनेट इसलिए बंद किया ताकि मुल्ले खुले आम हिन्दुओ का कत्ल कर सके इसलिए बार बार कह रहा हूँ कि हिन्दू जल्द इस्लामिक पार्टी काँग्रेस को पहचान ले नहीं तो एक भी हिन्दू जिंदा नहीं बचेगा इस दुकान मालिक के साथ जोधपुर में अपनी ही दुकान में हुई मारपीट का वीडियो जरूर देखें आगे से आगे शेयर करें.” (English translation: Congress party’s Mia Gehlot stopped the internet of Jodhpur today so that Muslims can openly kill Hindus. That’s why I am saying again and again that Hindus should soon recognize Islamic Party Congress. Otherwise no Hindu will be alive. Watch the video of the show owner beaten in his own shop in Jodhpur and share further.”)

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

On doing a Google Reverse Image Search with one of the screenshots we found a report published by Dainik Jagran on May 1, 2022. The report had a screenshot of the video and was shared with a caption that reads, “यमुनानगर में शराब कारोबारी के बाद एक युवक से मारपीट का मामला सामने आया है। 10-12 बदमाशों ने युवक पर राड डंडों व तेजधार हथियार से हमला किया। घटना का वीडियो भी वायरल हुआ है। इस वीडियो में बदमाशों की दबंगई साफ दिख रही है।” (English translation: After beating a liqour business owner in Yamunanagar, a report of youth being beaten has come into light. 10-12 goons were beating a youth with rods, sticks and sharp weapons. The video of the incident has gone viral. The bullying of miscreants is clearly visible in this video.”)

Amar Ujala also published the report on May 1, 2022. According to the report, it was a matter of old grudges and the video is from Haryana.

Yamunanagar police also tweeted about the incident. The police tweeted, “2 दिन पहले गाँव सुल्तानपुर वासी कमल के साथ हुई मारपीट के मामले में वीडियो वायरल होने के बाद अपराध शाखा -1 की टीम ने तुरंत कार्रवाई करते हुए दो आरोपियों को किया गिरफ्तार।आरोपियों की पहचान कणिपला वासी रिकी व खांडरा वासी ईशाक के रूप में हुई।” (English translation: Two days ago, the crime branch-1 team took immediate action and arrested two accused after the video went viral in connection with the assault on Kamal, a resident of Sultanpur village. The accused were identified as Ricky, a resident of Kanipala and Ishaq, a resident of Khandra.”

Thus, a video from Haryana is widely being shared with a misleading caption.
