A video showing a woman vandalizing a shop in tears stating that her husband cheated on her is being shared with a false communal claim that a Hindu woman married a Muslim man who cheated on her by not revealing that he was already married.

In the backdrop of controversy over the new Tanishq ad and the discussions about 'love jihad' that started with it, a video surfaced on social media platforms showing a woman e woman vandalizing a shop in tears saying that her husband allegedly cheated on her and is already married to another woman and also has two children from her.

The video is being shared with a communal claim that a Hindu woman married to a Muslim, who later cheated on her.

The video was shared on a Facebook page with a caption in Hindi that can be roughly translated to, "By lying, a Muslim young man married a Hindu girl, but he was already married and turned out to be a father of two children."

At the time of writing this article, this video has been shared over 1300 times. 

A Twitter user also shared the same video with the same viral caption. 

This tweet has now been deleted, however, till then the tweet garnered over 2700 retweets. 

The truth behind the claim 

In our investigation, we found this claim to be false. There is no communal angle to the incident. The man and woman are both from the same religion and are Hindus.

With the help of relevant keyword searches on google, we found a report on the incident by Dainik Bhaskar. According to the report, on October 14, 2020, a young woman created a ruckus and vandalized a milking parlor on Bholaram Ustad road, Indore alleging that the milk parlor operator married her saying he is an orphan and stayed with her for three years after which he left and she came to know about that he was already married with two children.


Jagdish Malviya, Assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of Bhanvarkuan police station was quoted in the report saying that the woman had said that Anand Patil, milk parlor operator living in Chhota Bangarada, Indore, had married her in 2017 at Arya Samaj Mandir and in June this year his wife, learned that he was still married to another woman.

We also found a video report on the incident by a local news channel, according to which the woman identifies herself as Neha Patil married to an Anand Patil. Neha also gave a byte to the reporter. You can watch the relevant section the timestamp 2.05 minutes. The statement from the police on the incident can be heard from the 2.40 minutes timestamp.

Therefore, a video showing a woman vandalizing a shop in tears stating that her husband cheated on her is being shared with a false communal claim that a Hindu woman married a Muslim man who cheated on her by not revealing that he was already married.
