A mob speaking in Urdu can be seen threatening the women for buying clothes at the shop called ‘Malabar Cottons’ and repeatedly saying why she did visit that particular shop despite repeated warnings. A frightened child was also seen saying that they did not buy anything from the shop. OpIndia could not independently verify whether the owner of ‘Malabar Cotton’ was a Hindu, and when the incidents depicted in the videos happened. But the videos suggest that the incidents are recent and occurred during the current lockdown period as most people were wearing masks.
