Video of BJP youth wing members in a violent clash circulated as Muslims beating Hindus

As BJP was thwarted from forming the government in Karnataka some of their more ardent right-wing Hindutva supporters started circulating a video that showed Muslims attacking Hindus and the police in a bazaar in Karnataka. This video is being circulated to claim that since the Congress-JDS government has assumed power in the state, minorities are getting violent and targeting Hindus. The caption for the video was – “Whoever thinks Congress should return in 2019 should see this video.”

The video is actually from Ranchi in Jharkhand and shows a clash that took place after members of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha raised inflammatory communal slogans during a bike rally. The rally was to celebrate the completion of four years of the BJP government in the centre. BJYM is the youth wing of the BJP. A news report in The Pioneer read, “A clash like situation following verbal arguments and stone pelting took place near Daily Market area on Sunday afternoon when BJYM cadres started shouting communal slogans during their march to celebrate 4 years of government at the centre. When the youths were stopped by the locals an unruly scene took place that resulted in a clash finally stopped by the police force.”

Karnataka has had to deal with a lot of fake news especially before and after the election.

The state election was regarded as an important milestone in the battle for the country in 2019. In spite of the BJP emerging as the largest party, it was unable to form the government as it did not have the required numbers and a Congress-JDS alliance was elected.
