Amid tension over recovery of a cattle carcass from a residential area in Uttarakhand's Udham Singh Nagar district, local BJP MLA Rajkumar Thukral was on 11 January seen hurling abuses at Muslims, and asking police to frame them under 'false cases'.

Video of 'domestic feud' in Pakistan misleadingly shared as 'Hindu woman's abduction'

Date: 12 january 2022

A video that shows a woman dragged by several men towards a car has been viewed tens of thousands of times in social media posts that claim she is a Hindu who was made to convert to Islam for a forced marriage in Muslim-majority Pakistan. But the video has been shared in a misleading context; it has previously circulated in reports about a woman being assaulted in public after attempting to divorce her husband. Local police told AFP everyone involved in the "domestic feud" was Hindu.
