The video, dating back to December 2017, was shot in Udaipur. That particular rally was taken out by angry Muslims after one Shambhu Lal killed a Muslim construction worker from Bengal, accusing him of ‘Love Jihad’ and uploaded the killing video online. This video went viral and created a rage in Udaipur. We can see videos with longer duration uploaded by few local channels. A channel ‘Mewar Aajtak News’ has uploaded the same video with a duration of 2.23 minutes.  

The men can be seen raising slogans like ‘Hindustan Hamara hai’, ‘Bajrang dal hai hai’, ‘Hindustan mein rehna hoga, Allah-hu-akbar kehna hoga’ etc.

India TV also reported this incident where we can see the same visuals featuring in the video shared by Tarek Fatah.

Many articles can be seen in various media, including NDTV.

Hence, the video shared by Tarek Fatah claiming is has been shot during the Delhi Assembly elections is FALSE.
