The 44-second-long clip shows a woman slapping a man inside a bus. She can be heard speaking in a mix of Hindustani and English claiming that the man had been 'constantly touching her back'. The man can be heard apologising to her.

Several right wing Indian pages have shared the video with a Hindi caption translating to 'This Haji miya having a good faith was trying to molest a woman sitting ahead of him. However, the brave woman thrashed him. True, Hindu intolerance is increasing in this country. The poor community is quite afraid'.

(Hindi: इन पक्के ईमान वाले हाजी मियां ने अगली सीट पर बैठी महिला से पिछली सीट से छेड़खानी करने का प्रयास किया।लेकिन बहादुर महिला ने उल्टे इनकी ठुकाई कर दी। सच में देश में हिंदू असहिष्णुता बढ़ती ही जा रही है। बेचारी कौम बहुत ही डर गई है।)
