A video posted on Twitter shows a man adulterating milk by adding unsanitary water into a bucket filled with milk. User who shared this video claims that the man shown adulterating milk in the video is a Muslim. The tweet reads,
“I can hear Naara-E-Takbeer
A Muzlim milk seller doing what they have been taught to as per the book.
This exclusive weird video must reach the masses who still believe in Ganga-Jamuni Tehzeeb & Bhai-Chaara.
Just see the filth which many of us are eating/drinking around us.”
The above claim and video were shared by other Twitter users as well. You can see an example of this below.
Fact Check/ Verification
The user who tweeted the initial claim later posted an article from Times of India which details the viral video on milk adulteration.
According to the article, Dabeerpura police registered a case against Jahangeer Dairy Products owner and their employee, Raju, under section 3 of Epidemic Diseases Act after a complaint by Syed Azmat from Darulshifa, Hyderabad. The 19 August article also states, “The owner identified the worker as Raju from Bihar, who recently joined the farm. After the video went viral, Raju fled from the farm and switched off his phone.”
We reached out to Dabeerpura police Inspector N Satyanarayana, who confirmed the incident with us. He added that Raju, the employee shown adulterating milk in the video is still missing, and the case is under investigation.
Telangana Today has reported on this incident as well.
The tweet in context which claims that a Muslim man was adulterating milk in a viral video from Hyderabad is misleading. The man from the video is Raju, an employee of Jahangeer Dairy Products in Darulshifa, Hyderabad, and he does not belong to the minority community.
