According to a Facebook post, a video depicts Muslim males abusing Hindu ladies; however, The Hindu discovered that none of the accused were Muslims.
A video purportedly showing Muslim males abusing Hindu women in Tamil Nadu has gone popular on social media. It shows groups of men indulging in eve-teasing and assault. The Facebook video depicts bike-borne guys harassing a group of ladies, causing a disturbance in public, and getting into a violent argument with a man who is then assaulted. It looks to be a juxtaposition of many footages.
The movie was a mash-up of images from two distinct incidences at two women’s colleges in Madurai, according to a reverse image search.
The Madurai police responded to our journalist S. Sundar’s inquiry and stated that the video depicted two distinct incidences and that none of the suspects in either of these cases were Muslims.
The first incident occurred on October 30 at Lady Doak College in Tallakulam, according to N. Mohanraj, deputy commissioner of police for Madurai North, who spoke with The Hindu. A group of young people who were in the region to take part in the Muthuramalinga Thevar Guru Puja caused a commotion. 11 suspects have been taken into custody by the Tallakulam police in relation to the crime.
The second incident happened on November 2 at Sri Meenakshi Government Arts College for Women in Goripalayam when a few young people who were a part of a funeral procession made a disturbance by honking horns and yelling as students were leaving the building. The kids, who were intoxicated, attacked P. Senthamizh Pandian when the father questioned their behaviour. According to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, six out of the eight offenders have been detained by the Sellur police.
