Truth:

The speaker is not the Saudi prince, but he is Mohammad Tawhidi a Shia Muslim Imam. He is president of the Islamic Association of South Australia, which he founded in 2016. He is visibly known to be against Islamic fundamentalism and Pakistan. He has a very active twitter account where he expresses his opinion very strongly. On the same twitter account he came out and said that the video was false and is fake.

The video was taken from an event that Imam Tawhidi had attended a few days before the visit of the Saudi Prince. This is the video of the entire event:

He also shared the link of India Today when they busted the same video.

In the month of September 2018 Imam Tawhidi had tweeted a video of a naked man being beaten by a stick/rod saying “Islamic Extremists in India beating up a poor and elderly Indian beggar. I truly wish this Islamist criminal is arrested soon.

This was fake news which was later busted by SMHoaxSlayer. Here is the original story:

There are many such videos shared on Facebook with views ranging from 15-400 each.

Similar is the case on WhatsApp where the reach is very high and cannot be measured as there is no means to measure the reach on WhatsApp. But this video is shared on many groups spreading fake news.
