The video is staged
Alt News has recently debunked a string of similar videos which turned out to be fictional and scripted. This means that the incidents shown were dramatised but believed to be true. These videos are created for entertainment purposes and to raise awareness.
We performed a keyword search on Facebook, which led us to a December 21 post by user Deepika Singh where she has shared a longer version of the video in question.

A disclaimer appears at the 5:38 mark of this clip, stating that the video is fictional and meant for raising awareness.
We examined Deepika’s Facebook profile and discovered that she has shared numerous such scripted videos. Moreover, the girl who is acting in the video currently going viral also appears in some of the other clips. (Link 1, Link 2)
To sum it up, another scripted video was shared by social media users with a false anti-Muslim claim.
