Fake news: Majlis Bachao Tehreek leader spreads fake news of a Muslim man being beaten up by BJP/RSS workers for not chanting ‘Jai Shree Ram’

The Police has clarified that there was no communal angle and that he was beaten up over an alleged love affair. The accused who beat him up were arrested.

Former AIMIM leader who is now a leader of Majlis Bachao Tehreek and considered the main opponent of AIMIM took to Twitter to share that a Muslim man was beaten up in Karimnagar, Telangana. He alleged that the Muslim man was beaten up for not chanting ‘Jai Shree Ram’.

This was also shared by other social media users.

However, Commissioner of Police, Karimnagar, Telangana State, shared a video of the Muslim man where he clarifies that he was beaten up over a personal issue and there was no communal side to it.

He mentions how it took place over a ‘love story’. He was reportedly beaten up for allegedly harassing a teenaged girl over last few days. The police have registered a case against five persons who beat him up under various sections of the IPC.

The man’s father also came on record to confess how it was his son’s fault which led to the incident and even apologised for the same. He too clarified that there was no communal angle to it.

However, alert Twitter users were also quick to point out who were spreading the fake news that there was no communal angle to the incident.

This incident comes close on heels of the Gurugram incident where another Muslim man had claimed that he was beaten up and his skullcap forcefully thrown away. The police investigation had revealed that no such thing had happened and his skullcap fell on its own in the brawl that took place.
