A video of a man wearing a skullcap, addressing "dogle" (two-faced) Hindus has gone viral on social media.

What is he saying?: Referring to himself as a Muslim man, the person calls Hindus in Ayodhya "two-faced," claiming that if Rahul Gandhi had come to power, he would give Muslims reservations.

  • "If a leader had built a mosque for us, we would vote for him for the rest of our lives, but you did not vote for Modi despite him having done everything for you," the man says.

  • The claim comes against the backdrop of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) losing from Ayodhya, months after the Ram Temple was inaugurated.
