A picture of a man wearing a burqa is getting viral on social media, claiming that this person participated in Shaheen Bagh protest wearing a burqa in the greed of Biryani and Rs 500.
A Twitter user name Kangana fan Hindu shared the picture with a caption, "wearing Salma's burqa in Shaheen Bagh, Balma is also reached, there is a question of Briyani and 500 rupees".
The viral image received 446 likes and 180 retweets at the time of writing this article.
A Facebook user name Kailash Naiwal shared the same image along with the same caption.
After doing reverse research of the image, we found the same picture on some local news websites of Kashmir. According to the article,
"At about 12.30 hours Pulwama police received information regarding the presence of militants at Bus Stand Pulwama. Reacting to this information, SOG along with 182 bn CRPF personnel rushed to the spot. There they saw some suspicious people along with burqa-clad women sitting in sumo. When the troops directed them to get down from the vehicle, they started indiscriminate firing on them and ran away from the spot."
We also found this picture posted from the Twitter handle named 'KashmirDispatch'. The picture also has a watermark of Kashmir Dispatch. The photo was also tweeted on October 16, 2015, and according to the caption, "Pulwama firing update: One burqa-clad man namely Traiq Ahamd of Drach Pulwama arrested in Kashmir."
The viral picture has nothing to do with the anti-CAA protests going on in Shaheen Bagh. This picture is from the year 2015 when Special Operation Group (SOG) personnel arrested this person in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district for firing at the bus stand.
