This Muslim woman & her baby were buried not by Hindus but her husband

The video of the bodies of a woman and her baby being dug up from a grave is being shared by Pakistanis with a claim that Muslims are being buried alive in India.

New Delhi: A video with the title ‘Muslims are being buried alive in India’ was posted Saturday by an unverified Twitter account of retired Pakistan Army Major Muhammad Arif.

The 1-minute-40-second clip shows a baby and a woman being dug up from the ground while a large group of people stand around watching.

The video has raked up nearly 45,000 views and has been retweeted 2,000 times.

The clip was also shared by prominent Pakistani-origin British MP, Lord Nazir Ahmed, who called it a “horrific video of a mother and child buried alive in India by Fascist”. It has been viewed over 18,000 times and has 1,100 retweets.

Fact-check

The video was taken in West Bengal’s Halugach village in North Dinajpur district in January this year. The woman and infant were allegedly murdered by the husband, who reportedly was unhappy about having a girl child.

This local news report said the husband, identified as Akbar Alam, had been married to the woman, identified as Noor Jahan, for two years.

Angered by the murder, villagers turned on Alam, who fled the area, and torched his house.

(The report has been updated to reflect that the incident occurred in India but the deaths were due to domestic violence. The error is regretted.
