This was also viral in June 2020 claiming it to be from Bihar, people burning BJP flags after Amit Shah’s Digital rally –





The photo is from Nov 2018, before Rajasthan Assembly elections, the people burning the flags are supporters of an independent candidate, not Brahmans. It’s from Rajasthan, not Bihar

As you can see, this incident took place in front of a BJP office, and the life size poster of the man wearing a turban suggests this is from Rajasthan.

सोमवार को भाजपा की पांचवीं सूची में कोटपूतली सीट पर जब मुकेश गोयल का नाम आया तो हंसराज पटेल ने बागी उम्मीदवार के रूप में ताल ठोकते हुए अपना नामांकन दाखिल कर दिया। देर शाम मुख्य चौराहे के पास पटेल समर्थकों ने पार्टी के झंडे जलाते हुए यूपी भाजपा के संगठन महामंत्री व कोटपूतली वासी सुनील बंसल व केंद्रीय मंत्री एवं सांसद कर्नल राज्यवर्धन सिंह राठौड़ के पुतले फूंककर नारेबाजी की।”

Translation: On Monday, when Mukesh Goyal’s name appeared in Kotputli seat in BJP’s fifth list, Hansraj Patel filed his nomination as a rebel candidate. Near the main square in late evening, Patel’s supporters burnt BJP party’s flag and effigies of UP BJP organization General Secretary and Kotputli resident Sunil Bansal and Union Minister and MP Colonel Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore.”
