Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh): A viral video widely circulating on social media alleging assault on comedian Munawar Faruqui in Jabalpur has been proved false by police authorities on Tuesday. The video purportedly showed Faruqui being beaten at a restaurant in Jabalpur after making derogatory remarks about Hindu deities. However, police officials have clarified that the video is misleading, and no such incident occurred in Jabalpur.

ASP Suryakant Sharma emphasized that there is no record of any assault on Munawar Faruqui in Jabalpur. The police have urged the public not to propagate unverified information and cautioned against the spread of false narratives. Sharing such misleading content is a punishable offense, and authorities are considering action against those responsible for spreading fake videos.
