Spread the truth:

A video from a likely warehouse is viral in which a bunch of people are mixing a color/chemical to the rice. The viral message along with the video says Muslims are adding chemicals to rice to decrease Hindu population and name this act as ‘Rice Jihad’

Following text is viral with the video –

“अब चावल जेहाद, 🐷🐷 हिन्दुओ कहा कहा से अपने परिवार और बच्चों को बचाओगे, मुसलमानों ने कमर कस ली है कि हिन्दुओ को यानी काफिरों को खत्म करना ही है,ऐसे चावल को मत खरीदो ऊपर दिये गये वीडियो से स्पष्ट है कि मुसलमान चावल में रसायन डालकर हिंदू आबादी में कमी लाने की कोशिश कर रहे हैं.न केवल चावल में वे इस खतरनाक रसायन को जोड़ रहे हैं ताकि हिन्दुओ को बीमार कर सकें।इसलिए मुस्लिम और मुस्लिम प्रतिष्ठानों से कोई भी वस्तु खरीदना नहीं है। महिलाओं ओर बच्चों में यह रसायन और जल्दी विकार उतपन करता है इससे कैंसर,हार्ट ट्रबल, स्कीन में खुजली, आंखों की रोशनी कम होना, ओर डायबिटीज हो जाता है।सावधान रहना, हिन्दू दुकानदार से ही खरीदारी करो”

Translation in English“Now Rice Jihad. Where and how long Hindus will save their family and children, Muslims have geared up to eliminate that Hindus i.e. infidels. Do not buy such rice, it is clear from the above video that Muslims are trying to reduce the Hindu population by adding chemicals to the rice. Not only are they adding this dangerous chemical to rice so as to make Hindus sick. So don’t buy anything from Muslim and Muslim establishments. In women and children, this chemical produces early disorder, it causes cancer, heart trouble, itching in the skin, reduced eyesight, and diabetes. Be careful, shop only from Hindu shopkeepers.”
