Bihar man unleashes his dog on cow, journalist invents Hindu-Muslim angle

Journalist Narendra Nath's tweet with fake information has already been retweeted over 2000 times.

On Friday evening, a man in Patna, Bihar, was angry that a cow was tied to the gate of his house. He got angry and unleashed his pet dog on the cow which bit the cow. The residents got angry at the dog owner’s actions and things got a little tense. However, Police reached on the spot and controlled the situation.

However, journalist Narendra Nath, gave it a communal angle and spread fake information that the matters escalated over rumours that the dog owner was a Muslim.


However, it is untrue.

As per this report of the same incident, the house owner, who is a jeweller, was angry that people used to tie their cow outside his gate to milk them. When he took his dog out in the evening for a walk, he got angry on seeing the dirt. Following which, he unleashed his dog on the cow.

According to the eye witness, the owner had threatened to get the owner bitten by his dog if the cows are tied to his gate. He even said that the dog owner threw stones on the cows tied below.

Twitter user Mihir Jha, pointed out to Nath that none of the reports, web portals of local news mention the ‘rumour’ Nath is talking about.


He added that after Nath’s tweets, some portals picked up the ‘Muslim dog owner’ bit and wrote reports, which later were removed from the portals.

Nath’s tweet with fake information has already been retweeted over 2000 times. Nath, however, continues to stand by his falsehood.
