A picture of a Muslim cleric sitting in an airplane, with a bottle of alcohol and a glass beside him is viral on the social media platforms with a caption in Hindi stating “Right use of Zakat money."
A Facebook user shared the viral image with a caption that states that this is how zakat money is used by them.
The image is viral on Twitter with a similar caption.
With the help of a reverse image search on google, we got the source of this picture and found that the viral image is edited with the bottle and the glass added digitally
This picture is taken from a Facebook page of Jamiat Talba Islam Bajaur and this post is dated 15th August 2019. In the real picture, we did not found any liquor bottle nor any tumbler as it was visible in the viral pictures.
On further search, we also found that the person in this picture is non-other than Fazal Ur Rehman who is a right-wing Pakistani politician and current president of Jamiat E Ulema Islam.
In our investigation, we found that the viral picture was photoshopped as in the original picture there is no such liquor bottle nor any tumbler. The liquor bottle and the glass has been digitally added.
