I just want to know it’s dangerous or not… It moves very fast.

This is a Solifugid, and though they are commonly called Camel Spiders or Sun Spiders, and though they are Arachnids, they are not true spiders. They do not have venom, but a large individual might bite a human, and they have powerful mandibles. Solifugids are fierce predators, and we would encourage you to allow them to keep your surroundings clear of unwanted insects like Cockroaches. As it appears the individual in your image has bee sprayed with insecticide, we are tagging this posting as Unnecessary Carnage.
