Old video from Kashmir viral as Hindu women thrashed in Pakistan

“Condition of Hindu girls in Pakistan’s Punjab province. See what happened when they reported…” is a message widely circulating on social media along with a video that shows a man brutally thrashing two women. Twitter user @shukla28 who describes himself as a BJP supporter was among those who shared the clip drawing 50,000 views. [Translated from पाकिस्तान के पंजाब प्रांत मई हिन्दू लड़कियों की हालत ,रिपोर्ट करने से क्या हुआ….”]

Another user who identifies as a PM Modi supporter retweeted @shukla28‘s tweet.

The video is viral on Facebook and Twitter.

VIDEO FROM JAMMU AND KASHMIR

Alt News broke the video into multiple keyframes and reverse-searched one of these on Yandex. This led us to a report by Gujarati media outlet Divya Bhaskar published on August 30, 2018. According to the article, the video was shot in Rajouri, Jammu and Kashmir. Based on these clues, we performed a keyword search on YouTube and were redirected to a June 21, 2018 video report by HW News. The broadcast includes a statement by Rajouri SSP Yugam Manhas who said that a mother-daughter duo was thrashed by a neighbour for an old dispute. The accused was a driver by profession and fled after the alleged crime. The police however, caught him in a village in Kathua.

J&K police had tweeted about the incident on June 21, 2018, and provided information of the arrest.

Therefore, a nearly two-year-old video of women thrashed in Jammu and Kashmir is viral with the false claim that it depicts mistreatment of Hindus in Pakistan. The video is circulating in the backdrop of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) that seeks to provide Indian citizenship to non-Muslim minorities from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
