  • Share

Summary

An old image showing a man in turban offering namaz in a mosque is being falsely linked to ongoing farmers' protest. 

In the backdrop of ongoing farmers' agitation in the country against the centre's new farm laws, an image is being widely circulated on social media showing a man in a turban offering 'namaz' in a mosque, claiming that it shows an imposter dressed in Sikh attire who participated in farmers’ protest. 

A Twitter user shared the image with a caption saying, "He went to attend ‘Kissan Rally’, forgot to remove his headgear on return to mosque. His agenda could be anything but their welfare. Pls, help in sharing this pic. In the name of Farmer’s Bill we’ve imposters."

The image is viral on Facebook with the same claim. 

The truth behind the claim 

In our investigation, we found this claim to be false. The viral image is at least 5 years old, hence, not related to the ongoing farmers' protest.

With the help of reverse image search, we found this viral image shared a screenshot of a Facebook post on the ‘Sikh Awareness’ website on February 5, 2016. 

On further investigation, we found this image shared on a Facebook in May 2016, with the caption saying, "This Sikh man entered the mosque, performed wudhu, and amazingly said "Allahu Akbar" and prayed in front of everyone. May Allah spread this beautiful religion across the world." 

We not able to independently find any other information about the viral image, however, it is clear that the image is not related to the ongoing farmers' protest as it is doing rounds on the internet since 2016. 

In conclusion, an old image showing a man in turban offering namaz in a mosque is being falsely linked to ongoing farmers' protest.
