Police within the northern Indian state of Rajasthan have arrested a person who allegedly hacked one other man to loss of life and set him alight earlier than sharing video of the obvious spiritual assault.
In a second video, the person is seen justifying the incident to “defend the honour of Hindus towards Muslims”.
Police have recognized the suspect as a Hindu. His sufferer was Muslim.
Web companies have been suspended in elements of the state and other people have been urged to cease sharing the video.
Police have been deployed in massive numbers to maintain the peace.
It isn’t clear when the assault occurred.
Within the video, the suspect Shambu Lal warns Muslims, saying: “That is what’s going to occur to you when you do ‘love jihad’ in our nation.”

The time period has been popularised by radical Hindu fringe teams, who accuse Muslim males of taking part in a “conspiracy to show Hindu girls from their faith by seducing them”.
Senior police official Anand Srivastava informed BBC Hindi’s Dilnawaz Pasha that the person had shared a number of “hateful” movies on social media.
He added that police believed the accused and his sufferer didn’t know one another and had no historical past of animosity.
The sufferer, Mohammad Afrazul, who labored within the metropolis of Udaipur, had been residing there for greater than 10 years.
“We have now discovered that no one from Shambu Lal’s household had an inter-religious marriage. He has used inflammatory statements in these movies. To keep away from any violence, we have now been organising conferences between the 2 communities,” Mr Srivastava added.
