Here a Muslim sister calling us for help. This is Muslims life in Endia. My dear sister we will take your Revenge. Dear Pakistanio Pls Value your PakArmy who are protecting u from these Hindus since 70yrs.” The message suggests that Hindus in India are arbitrarily killing Muslims.

Few other individual users on Facebook and Twitter had shared the video with an identical narrative. Hubaib Yousefzai, a Twitter handle based out of Pakistan had earlier tweeted the same video, which now stands deleted.
Alt News found that the video is actually from Telangana and NOT Jhansi. It’s a 2018 video related to an incident in which a sub-inspector was caught on camera beating his wife and mother-in-law. “The incident happened at his residence where the victim had gone to confront him over his alleged illicit relationship with another woman”, stated a Times Now report published on August 31, 2018. At 0:56 minutes in the video below, the corresponding visuals of a wailing woman can be seen.
This video was earlier debunked by The Print.
An old and unrelated video of domestic violence, over an alleged extramarital affair, was circulated in Pakistani social media ecosystem in order to portray the state of minorities in India.
