Fact Check: Scripted video shared with communal spin

Hyderabad: A video of a tailor misbehaving with a woman while taking measurements is widely being shared on social media. The woman feels uncomfortable and leaves the place.

Later, another woman wearing a burqa arrives for stitching her clothes. The tailor tries to misbehave with that woman as well. The woman takes off the burqa and poses as a cop. Panicked, the tailor apologizes to the woman.

This video is being shared claiming that this tailor belonged to a particular community and misbehaved with women. Users appealed to Hindu women to stay away from the Muslim community.



Fact Check

The claim is False.

NewsMeter firstly watched the viral video carefully. We found that at the end of the video it is written that girls should beware of such incidents and raise their voice against them.


Taking a cue from this, we performed a Google Reverse Image Search, which led us to a video uploaded on the YouTube channel '3RD EYE' on March 12, 2022. According to the description, it is a scripted drama, with the purpose to make people aware of any such happenings.

"Please be aware that this channel features scripted dramas and parodies to aware people of different situations. This channel brings social awareness videos. These short films are for entertainment purposes only," read the description.


Hence, it is evident that the claim made through the viral post is False. It is a scripted video and nowhere does it mention the tailor belonging to a specific community.
