The claim is false.
NewsMeter first took out multiple screenshots of the viral video by uploading it to the InVID tool. Later we conducted a Google reverse image. In the initial search, we found a news report on Jagran.com, published on June 30.
It said Naga Sadhu threw out laddoos alleging poor quality of prasad in Hanumangarhi, the main bench of Bajrangbali in Ayodhya.
According to the report, the priests refused to accept this prasad for Hanuman. Later a group of sadhus who came out of Hanumangarhi called upon the traders not to sell these laddoos and throw them away. When the vendors dithered, some angry Naga sadhus threw out laddoos.
During the search, we found a video on the YouTube channel of TV9 Bharatvarsh. It was uploaded on 1st July. It said sadhus of Hanumangarhi and prasad sellers came face to face in Ayodhya.
After accusing vendors of Hanumangarhi of manufacturing substandard laddoos, some sages tossed platters on the streets and misbehaved with the shopkeepers.
Hence, the claim is false.
