Sudhir Chaudhary (Editor In Chief, Zee News), quoted above tweet with a question that if this claim with the video is true, Pakistani Gov. should arrest the Chinese nationals or do they have courage to do so ?
If this is true Pakistani Govt should arrest this Chinese national. Do they have the courage? https://t.co/OvPTWgUNCL

This video is from Malaysia, Year 2016, not recent from Pakistan
The handle on which these news channels based their news on, which Sudhir Chaudhary quoted is a parody account itself claiming it is merely for fun.
The yellow T-shirt, the man looking over was wearing had a logo Berish-5 on it which is actually a pro-democracy Malasyian group
