0


A video is shared on social media, claiming that they are visuals of Muslims stabbing Hindu devotee Jatin Shah to death in a pandal in Durga, Bangladesh. According to the recent Isckon Press release on the attacks in Bangladesh, two worshipers named Pranta Chandra Das and Jatan Chandra Saha were announced dead in the attack on the Isckon temple in Choumoni. Let’s check the claim made in the mail.

Claim: Video of Muslims stabbing Hindu devotee Jatan Saha to death in Bangladesh.

Do: Video shared in the post shows a former murder linked to a land dispute in Dhaka, Bangladesh. This incident took place on May 16, 2021 in the Pallabi district of Dhaka. Shahinuddin, a businessman from the Pallabi region of Dhaka, was brutally murdered by former Bangladeshi MP MA Awal Haveli and his associates during a 10-acre land dispute. This video has nothing to do with the recent violent attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh. Therefore, the claim made by post is FALSE

When searching for reverse images of the screenshots in the video, similar visuals were found in a video posted by YouTube channel “News 24” on May 20, 2021. This video reports that it is about images of a man brutally killed by hacking in the Pallabi area of ​​Dhaka, Bangladesh. Shahinuddin, a businessman from the Pallabi region of Dhaka, was allegedly stabbed to death during a 10-acre land dispute. According to the details provided in the description, the chairman of the Islamic Democratic Party and former member of Parliament of Bangladesh MA Awal Haveli was attempting to forcibly occupy 10 acres of land belonging to the Shahinuddin family. Following Shahinuddin’s resistance to selling his land at a lower price, on May 16, 2021, MA Awal and his associates killed Shahinuddin in front of his 6-year-old son Mashrafe.

Reporting the same, a few other Bangladesh news channels posted videos and articles. They can be seen here, here, and here. Bangladesh Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) Team stopped the former accused MA Awal Haveli and others involved in the murder in May 2021.

When this old video of murder during a land dispute is falsely released as recent visuals of Muslims stabbing Hindu devotee Jatan Saha in Bangladesh, Bangladesh police released a Press release mentioning the details of this video. Bangladesh police said the video circulating on social media was linked to the case of Shahinuddin’s murder in Pallabi.

To sum up, a video of a former murder during a land dispute in Dhaka is falsely linked to the recent attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh.
