NewsMobile fact-checked the above video and found that the post is misleading.
We extracted the keyframes of the video through InVid and put them through Reverse Image Search. We came across a report by News18, featuring the same video, which was uploaded on their Facebook page on January 13, 2018.

According to the report, the incident took place when Bihar CM Nitish Kumar was on his way to a village in Buxar.
On digging further, we came across several reports suggesting that the incident took place back in January 2018, in which Nitish Kumar escaped unhurt.

Reports say that the incident took place on January 12, 2018, when Nitish Kumar’s car was attacked by stone pelters during his ‘Samiksha Yatra’- undertaken to make a first-hand review of development works in the state, in Nandar of Buxar.
Two security personnel got injured in the attack.
In conclusion, the above information proves that the video in question is old and is not related to Amit Shah.
