Screengrabs from a YouTube video on sexual assault is now being falsely shared to show a teacher doing some objectionable acts with a young student inside a Madarsa.
Recently, a set of images showing a man wearing a skull cap doing some objectionable acts with a young girl has surfaced on social media platforms with a claim such obscenity is happening inside madrasa.
A Twitter user named Aarti Mishra shared the image with a caption in Hindi that can be roughly translated to, "Maulavi teaching Kalma to Salma inside a Madarsa. These Madarsa should be shut as they have become a place for obscenity. People who comment on Hindu saints should also open their mouths on this."
This tweet has been reshared over 150 times.
The same set of images is also being widely shared on Facebook with the same caption.
In our investigation, we found this claim to be false. The viral images are screengrabs from a short film on sexual assault uploaded on a Bangladeshi YouTube channel in September 2020.
With the help of a reverse image search, we found the video on a YouTube channel named Anna Bala on September 21. The language of the video is Bangla. According to the description, the channel uploads fictional videos related to crimes to create awareness.
The first few frames of the video make it clear that the viral images are screenshots from this YouTube video.
Hence, screengrabs from a YouTube video on sexual assault is now being falsely shared to show a teacher doing some objectionable acts with a young student inside a Madarsa.
