A video clip is being shared on social media claiming it is the visuals of a cow meat shop near the Jama Masjid in Delhi. The video shows a beheaded cow with head and leg limbs separated from the body. Sharing the video clip, the man in the video alleges that Muslims were selling beef by slaughtering cows ruthlessly in front of the Jama Masjid in Delhi. Let’s verify the claim made in the post.
Claim: Video clip showing the cow meat shop near the Jama Masjid in Delhi.
Fact: The video clip shared in the post was published by a Pakistani TikTok user in December 2022. The TikTok user owns a beef shop in Pakistan and said that he will upload more such videos as part of the promotion of his beef shop. The video is from Pakistan and has nothing to do with any shop near the Jama Masjid in Delhi. Hence, the claim made in the post is False.
On reverse image search of the screenshots of the video clip shared in the post, a video with similar visuals was tweeted recently by many users on social media. A few users in the comment section responded to these tweets and stated that the video is from Pakistan. When we searched for further sources, a video with similar visuals was found posted by a Pakistani TikTok user named Faheem on 09 December 2022.
Responding to a user’s comment to the post, Faheem confirmed it is Halal meat and said that he made Nihari with the 3kgs fresh beef meat on that day. Faheem thanked TikTok followers for liking and giving love to his video and said that he recently opened a beef shop in Pakistan and promised that he will upload similar videos soon on his TikTok handle. Faheem in another comment stated that he is uploading these videos as part of the promotion for his beef shop. From all these pieces of evidence, it can be concluded that the video clip shared in the post is from Pakistan, not from any beef shop in front of the Jama Masjid in Delhi.
To sum it up, an old video from Pakistan is shared as the visuals of a cow meat shop in front of the Jama Masjid in Delhi.
