Videos taken across India are going viral on social media. They show hordes of men harassing and even attacking young couples in the street.

The clips are accompanied by a hashtag #BhagwaLoveTrap - and have been inspired by an inflammatory narrative.

The theory suggests Hindu men are trying to seduce Muslim women and lure them away from their communities - but there’s scant evidence to support the idea.

Shruti Menon meets the Muslim activists pushing the idea of a ‘Bhagwa Love Trap’, and asks what’s behind it.

And she hears from a Hindu leader who thinks the theory is nonsense, and claims the reverse is happening instead.
