A video of a gym instructor touching a woman trainee is being shared on social media claiming it as the visuals of a Muslim gym instructor trapping a young Hindu woman in Delhi. This post claims that Bilal Ahmed Khan, a Muslim gym instructor in Delhi, is running multiple gyms to trap young women from Hindu families. Let’s verify the claim made in the post.
Claim: Video of a Muslim gym trainer’s misconduct with a woman trainee in Delhi.
Fact: This video shows a gym instructor training his wife in Trinidad & Tobago, not in India. Imran Razac, a fitness instructor in Trinidad & Tobago, is seen training his wife Reshma Razac in this video. They both belong to the same community. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.
When we searched for the details of this video on the internet, it is found out that this video is related to the Trinidad & Tobago fitness instructor, Imran Razac. This video was found to be published on Facebook and Instagram handles of ‘Body by Imran’ in 2017. They can be seen here and here. A similar workout video of both was found on one of these social media handles. In the description of this video, it is mentioned as the visuals of Imran Razac, training his wife Reshma Razac at his gym.
On observing the Facebook and Instagram handles of Imran and Reshma, it is confirmed that they are a married couple. In 2020, Imran Razac clarified to ‘Alt News’ that woman seen along with him in the workout video is his wife. Also, he clarified that they belong to the same community.
The gym in the video is located in Trinidad & Tobago, not in India. Social media posts, by ‘Body by Imran’ mentioning this gym as ‘Last Circular Gym’ in Trinidad & Tobago can be seen here, here, and here.
To sum it up, an old gym workout video of a married couple in Trinidad & Tobago is falsely shared as visuals of a Muslim gym instructor’s misconduct, with a woman trainee in Delhi.
