A picture is making rounds on social media in which a man is seen stripping a woman in broad daylight in the middle crowd. The caption claims that the man in the picture is the BSP leader, Bakruddin Ansari, who had stripped a Dalit woman off her clothes.
Translation: This is not a movie scene. Dalit brothers, BSP leader Bakruddin Ansari, with his goons, a Dalit woman has been stripped.
At the time of reporting the post was shared by over 9,000 Facebook users.
The same post was shared by another account which was later deleted.
When NewsMobile put the viral picture through the Google Reverse Image search, we found that the picture is a screen grab from a Bhojpuri movie ‘Aurat Khilona Nahin.’
While fact-checking for the authenticity of the picture, we came across a blog post dated August 2014, which had used the same picture which talks about the movie.
Meanwhile, the full movie is also available to watch on YouTube and at 2 hours 11 minute, the same frame can be seen.
Interestingly, the same picture went viral during the Basirhat riots in July 2017.
