Some Twitter users have shared a video of a man seemingly urinating into a tub of confectioneries and claimed in their tweets that an ‘enemy of Hindus’ is ‘urinating in Gulab Jamun’ during the wedding season. They have also cautioned the public saying, “Check the Aadhaar card of the confectioner before you employ his workers. Otherwise, you will lose your honour.”

A user named Prabhat Sharma Rashtravadi shared the video with the above-mentioned claim.

So did another user named Anchor Vagisha Pandey, whose Twitter bio describes her as bureau head, Madhya Pradesh and anchor-cum-producer at Sudarshan News.

The Video was Viral in 2022 As Well

In December 2022, Zee Uttar Pradesh Uttarakhand published the video on its website. The title of the video read “बंदे ने शादी के लिए बन रहे खाने में किया कुछ ऐसा, देखकर आएगी घिन”. The caption said ‘Man Urinated in Gulab Jamun’. (Archive)

Many Twitter users shared the clip with the claim that the man seen in the video was a Muslim, and dubbed the incident as a ‘Jihad’, a term often used by the Right Wing to target Muslims. Head of social media of UP BJP youth wing Richa Rajpoot used the phrase ‘Food Jihad’ while sharing the video. She wrote: “फ़ूड जिहाद के बाद इस #जिहाद का क्या नाम?”. (Archive)

User @RituRathaur shared the same clip and her tweet garnered over 13,800 views. (Archive)

User @TheDeepak2022 also tweeted the image and asked the viewers to find out the names of the caterer and the cook before eating at a wedding party. (Archive)

Several other users had shared the clip with the same claim. (Archives- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

Fact Check

Alt News found a longer version of the viral video on Instagram uploaded by user @ashiq.billota. At the end of the Instagram video, the person can be seen holding a bottle from which a liquid is being poured into the tub.

The last few frames of the original video have been clipped in the viral video to give the impression that the man seen in the video is urinating into the confectioneries. Below, we have taken a screenshot of the exact moment where the bottle is visible and circled it out for our readers.

On watching the entire clip, it becomes clear that it is a prank video.

So, the video where a man seemingly urinates into a tub of confectioneries is actually an edited clip. The longer version of the video shows the man pouring a transparent liquid into the tub from a bottle. The viral video is being falsely shared with a communal spin.
