The video shows the guy in an automobile with policeman, one of whom he spits on.
The initial text (in Bengali) approximately translates as: “For those who desire evidence, here’s a video that reveals the Jamaatis from Nizamuddin spitting on policemen.”
This describes a big Muslim spiritual event in March by a group known as the Tablighi Jamaat, in the Nizamuddin area of the Indian capital, Delhi.
This gathering was later on blamed for assisting to spread the infection, with several thousand favorable cases connected back to it, according to official figures.
The video of the Muslim guy spitting has actually been shared a number of thousand times – however it’s deceptive.
A reverse image search reveals it has absolutely nothing to do with the religious gathering in Delhi.
It’s from a report in February by the Mumbai Mirror, a regional paper in western India, about a 26- year-old man who was under arrest and entered into an argument with policeman about the food he was being given.
The video was shot in Thane, a city on the borders of Mumbai, in the Indian state of Maharashtra, and not in Delhi.
