Summary

A picture from a mosque in Pune which was converted into a quarantine center for Covid patients last year is being passed off as a mosque in Delhi being converted into a Covid facility,

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise and hospitals facing an acute shortage of beds for patients, several religious places are turned into quarantine centers.

Amid this, a picture from inside a mosque is getting viral on social media with a claim that a mosque in Delhi has been turned into a quarantine facility for Covid patients.

A Facebook user name Sayyed Siraj Saudagar shared the picture with a claim that "Delhi: Masjid Ashaat-e-Islam, Jama'at-e-Islami Hind, Abul Fazl Enclave, Shaheen Bagh, Jamia Nagar, Azim Khidmat for covid Patients !!"( Translated fro Hindi )

Fact Check

In our investigation, we found that the viral claim is false. The image of the Covid facility is from a mosque inside Azam Campus educational institute in Pune, Maharashtra.

After doing a reverse image search on Google, we found several news reports which carried the viral image in April 2020. 

According to a report by “Navbharat Times”, dated 28 April 2020, the image is from a Mosque located inside Azam Campus educational institute in Pune that has been turned into a quarantine center.

On April 28, 2020, News agency ANI had tweeted the pictures from inside the Azam Campus mosque with the caption "Maharashtra: Mosque located inside Azam Campus educational institute in Pune has been turned into a quarantine facility for persons likely infected with COVID19. PA Inamdar, Chairman, Maharashtra Cosmopolitan&Education Society says, "It's our duty to help the nation at this time".

However, according to a report by Hindustan Times committee members and imams of mosques in Jamia Nagar are looking at starting isolation facilities for Covid positive individuals in the neighborhood. 

In conclusion, a picture from a mosque in Pune which was converted into a quarantine center for Covid patients last year is being passed off as a mosque in Delhi being converted into a Covid facility
