Fact check:

We analyzed the video frame by frame using InVid tool. While analyzing the video we took some keyframes from the video and did a reverse image search using Google Image search.

In our research, we found some references to the video. The video was uploaded to Facebook on 26 February 2019 by a user, ‘Saadhullah Jawaamil’ with caption Eastern University Ragging-2019.

It is evident that the video of this disgusting act by the group of students belong to the Eastern University of Sri Lanka. This Incident has nothing to do with RSS or with India.

Conclusion: So, the claim that Burkha-clad women are being harassed by RSS goons in India is fake and misleading.
