Fake Video of communal violence in post-election Karnataka.


Post elections in Karnataka, in which Congress and JD (S) coalition government took control, a misleading viral video is being shared to create a negative narrative towards Congress.
जिस भड़वे को लगता है कि देश में 2019 में कांग्रेस आना चाहिए कांग्रेसी चमचे को ये वीडियो देख लेना चाहिए कर्नाटक में 1महीना भी नही हुआ है सरकार बने और ये हालात है वीडियो में मुस्लिम बाजार में मुस्लिमो ने हिन्दू और पुलिस को कैसे दौड़ा दौड़ा कर पिट रहा है भारत में सुरक्षित रहना है |
(“Whichever coward thinks that Congress should return in 2019 should see this video. Not a month has elapsed in Karnataka since the govt has been formed and Muslims are beating Hindus and the Police in a Muslim Bazaar” Translated text. Muslim Bazaar is a market area in Karnataka).
This tweet was posted in the afternoon of June 12 on Twitter. But it has been shared more often on WhatsApp.

Sunil Karmunge tweet showing the viral video. Currently, it has got 782 retweets and 618 likes.

The video was shot in Ranchi, Jharkhand in June 2018. And has nothing to do with any incident in Karnataka post election.
