A video is being shared on social media claiming it as visuals of Muslim boys trapping Hindu girls for sexual pleasures. This video shows a group of three boys inviting two girls in the name of a birthday party and secretly using some powder on the birthday cake to make the girls go unconscious. Sharing the video, the post claims that it shows the way by which Muslims are trapping their Hindu friends and making them their sex slaves. Let’s verify the claim made in the post.
Claim: Video of Muslim friends trapping Hindu girls in the name of birthday parties.
Fact: The video shared in the post is a scripted one. This video was created intentionally to create awareness among girls. This scripted video did not portray the boys as Muslims. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.
On reverse image search of the screenshots in the video, a video with similar visuals was found published in the official Facebook page of Sanjjana Galrani, a popular Kannada actress. The description of the video states, “BE CAREFUL…Thank you for watching! Please be aware that this page features scripted dramas and parodies as well. These short films are for entertainment & educational purposes only!”. Sanjjana Galrani clearly stated it as a scripted video created for educating girls to not trust their friends so blindly.
Also, at the end of the original video, we could see a disclaimer with the text, “Thank you for watching! Please be aware that this page features scripted dramas and parodies as well. These short films are for educational purposes only!”. By removing the disclaimer portion in the original video, this edited version is being shared on social media with a false communal narrative. The scripted video did not portray the boys as Muslims.
Recently, when similar scripted videos went viral as real incidents on social media, FACTLY published fact-check articles debunking those claims. Those articles can be read here, here, and here.
To sum it up, a scripted video is being shared as a real incident of Muslims trapping Hindu girls for sexual pleasures.
