Rumour

A picture of Rajnath Singh having tea and snacks with Maulana Rabey Hasani, the fourth President of All India Muslim Personal Law Board and few others, has been spreading on social media with claims that he has gone to Madrasa to seek for votes.

The picture was shared by a Facebook page Kamalnath Congress with a caption "These are the people who said that terrorists are reared in the Madrasas, but now today these people are eating at the same Madarsas for votes". 

This Facebook post has been liked and shared by thousands of people.

Our Investigation

We did a reverse image search and found the same picture in one of the tweets by Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Dinesh Sharma.

From his tweet, it is clear that Rajnath Singh and other BJP leaders had met up with Maulana Rabey Hasani who is the fourth President of All India Muslim Personal Law Board at Nadwa College to convey his condolences to him as his brother Maulana Wazeh Hasani had passed away on January 16th. 

A news article published by Live Hindustan has also reported this incident.

Rajnath Singh has also shared on his Facebook post about his visit to meet Maulana Rabey Hasani on April 30th. He has mentioned how wonderful it was to meet the Islamic scholar at Nadwi College in Lucknow.

Fact

The claim that Rajnath Singh is eating in Madrasa for votes is false. He met Maulana Rabey Hasani who is the fourth President of All India Muslim Personal Law Board at Nadwa College to convey his condolences to him as his brother Maulana Wazeh Hasani had passed away on January 16th.
