Fact Check: Video of Muslim offering namaaz at Patpargarnj goes viral with false claim, Delhi police dismisses rumour

The DCP East Delhi dismissed the false claims and tweeted that "This is totally false. An old video is being used with a malicious intent to spread rumour. Please verify before posting and spreading rumours."

A video of Muslims offering namaaz on the road was circulating on the social media with the claims that this is how lockdown rules are being flouted in Delhi.

Facebook user “Ashish Mehta” posted the video on May 14, 2020, with a caption in Hindi which translates to, “This is the scene from a mosque in Patparganj where rules are being flouted openly. On the other hand, Arvind Kejriwal is asking for suggestions from people on what needs to be done. He should feel ashamed.”

The one-minute-four-second video looks like it has been shot from a running car.

A background voice can be heard saying, “Look at this, this should also stop don’t they have any fear of coronavirus? this is Patparganj industrial area and it is happening right in front of police”

Newsd found out that the viral post was misleading. The video was shot and uploaded before the nationwide lockdown was imposed. The video was most probably shot on March 20, 2020, and was available on the Internet since March 21. Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the nationwide lockdown on March 24, 2020, and it was imposed the following day.

Several social media users have posted the same video with the similar claim that Muslims are offering namaaz on the road in Delhi, flouting lockdown rules.

The DCP East Delhi dismissed the false claims and tweeted that “This is totally false. An old video is being used with a malicious intent to spread rumour. Please verify before posting and spreading rumours.”

Verdict: The viral claim is false.
