An image of several people offering prayers on the road outside a mosque is being shared on social media to claim that it's from India.
However, we found that the image showed the Sobhanbag mosque in Bangladesh's Dhaka.
The claim along with the image reads: "यह मधुर सेक्युलर दृश्य केवल आपको भारत मे दिखाई देता है, बाकी 56 मुश्लिम देशों में ऐसा करे तो जेल में डाल दिया जाता है, यह केवल टेस्टिंग है, कब्जा करने की धैर्य की ताकि कितना दबाया जा सकता है।"
[Translation: You will see this secular scene only in India. If you do this in the remaining 56 Muslim nations, you will be put in jail. This is just testing of capturing, of patience, of how much can you be suppressed.]
WHAT WE FOUND
We conducted a Google reverse image search and came across an article published on 10 October that carried the viral image and the caption along with it mentioned that it showed the Sobhanbag mosque in Bangladesh's Dhaka.
Further, we came across several images of the said mosque in Dhaka that are available on Alamy. (Note: Swipe right to see the images.)
