A video about a woman wearing a burqa who escaped from the first floor of a building is very viral on the messaging platform. It is said that Muslim women who were caught shopping in the middle of a national lockdown tried to escape from the police. The ‘Jabir Hayaat Ansari AIMIM’ Facebook page shares clips with the title, “Drama drama and only drama. These women have come out to shop during locking. The police took the shop owner and locked these women inside the shop. “He has now deleted the tweet but the same information is used by several other users.

The ‘Khadda Market’ keyword search on Facebook led us to the video starting in 2015. One Jibran Waghani from Karachi, Pakistan shared the same video on June 13, 2015. The clip has 1.8 lakhs and more than 5,000 shares. He wrote, “FIA chapa (raid) in the Khadda market.” FIA is an abbreviation of the Federal Investigation Agency.

A YouTube channel uploaded videos and wrote that sex workers fled after the FIA attack on a brothel in Karachi. The same description is used by Daily Motio video sharing applicationn who credits the recording to Pakistani media outlets Ary News.
The 5-year video from Pakistan is therefore shared with a false claim that Muslim women were caught shopping while locked up in India.
