  • Share

Rumour

A video is being shared on social media to claim that a Brahmin man was beaten in front of his daughter by a Muslim mob in West Bengal.  The message with the video reads:

"Muslims beating one Brahman in WB in front of his daughter .
During Pooja in his house , the bell sound should not heard by any body. This is common in West Bengal in Muslim dominated areas.
No media is covering the atrocities on Hindus.Whereas human rights wings crying for shelter of Rohangya Muslims in India.

This was brought to our notice when a user tagged us in the same video uploaded by Sai Deepak J who captioned it with a message "This seems like West Bengal. How is this being permitted? What on earth was the police doing?"

Our Investigation

When searched for it, we found that the same video was viral in 2017 as well and was debunked by Kolkata Police when SMHoaxslayer requested for it. According to the police, the man was manhandled by family members of the girl whom he allegedly molested.

Kolkata Police had tweeted that an FIR was filed against the priest and a counter FIR was registered against those who assaulted him on August 31st 2017.

Another video of the incident is available on Youtube which claims that the man was caught while trying to molest a girl.

Fact

The claim that a Brahmin was beaten in front of daughter by Muslim mob is false. The man in the video was manhandled by family members of the girl whom he allegedly molested.
