Vivek Agnihotri’s controversial film ‘The Kashmir Files’ on the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus has sparked a political uproar. On the other hand, this film has also increased abuses against Muslims.

Meanwhile, a video is going viral on social media. In which it was claimed that Muslims are being attacked due to this film and they should be ready for their safety.

Sharing the video, a user tweeted, “It’s all a scene after watching #kashmirifiles movie! #Muslims always be ready for your safety because terrorists will now openly terrorize! #MuslimLivesMatter #Muslim.

Fact Check:

To investigate the above claim, we converted the video into individual keyframes with the help of the InVid tool and Google reverse image search of each keyframe, in this regard, we found the viral video’s screenshot in the news report published in the Gujarati language of TV18 on 20th March.

It was told in the report that two shopkeepers were attacked with swords by anti-social elements near Umiya Mata temple in Bhathe area of ​​Surat. They were demanding ransom for a long time. This entire incident was captured on CCTV.

On the other hand, a police inspector of Salabatpura police station has denied any communal angle in the incident. He said that the victim and the accused related to the incident belong to the same community.

Hence the viral video is misleading.
