A horrific video of molestation of a woman has gone viral all over social media with claims that it is from Kerala. The post also claims that such incidents are very common in Kerala as a certain community is in ‘minority’ there.
The Facebook caption read, ‘केरल में हो रही महिलाओं से छेड़छाड़ का वीडियो यह कोई पहला वीडियो वायरल नहीं इस प्रकार की घटना हर दिन घटित होती है इसका मुख्य उद्देश्य हिन्दुओं का अल्पसंख्यक होना
(Video of women being molested in Kerala, this is not the first video, this type of incident happens every day. The main reason is Hindus are in minority.)
