Fact Check: Picture Of A Pak Man With His Family Viral With Communal Claims

A viral image showing a Muslim man with his family around him is doing the rounds on social media. The image is being used to draw a comparison between a Hindu and a Muslim family in India, and how an increasing Muslim population in the country will lead to a decline of Hindutva over the years.

A Facebook user posted the viral picture with a caption: 

Narendra Modi जी विकास आदि सब फेल हो जायेंगे जब शरिया वो लगाएंगे कुछ इंतजाम कीजिए वरना हिंदुओं के लिए कोई दूसरा देश भी नहीं देर हो चुकी पहले ही जय श्री राम हर हर महादेव जय श्री कृष्ण डॉ दीपक कुमार (English translation: Narendra Modi ji, all developments will fail when Sharia is imposed. Make some arrangement otherwise there is no other country for Hindus already late Jai Shree Ram Har Har Mahadev Jai Shree Krishna Dr Deepak Kumar)

NewsMobile fact-checked the viral picture, and found it to be misleading.

Running a Reverse Image Search of the viral picture, we found an article in Gulf News, dated July 17, 2014, with a title “Man’s dream of fourth wife spoiled by Pakistan army assaults”, informs that the man in the picture is Gulzar Khan, a resident of North Waziristan tribal area. 

The picture matches the viral image, indicating that it is from Pakistan and has nothing to do with India. 

Another article by NDTV dated July 17, 2014, too, carries an image that matches the viral post. It explains that 54-year-old Khan has fathered 36 children with his 3 wives. He was about to get married for the fourth time as the army moved into the North Waziristan area to clear bases of Taliban and other militants.

We could not find a single credible source of news informing that the man in the picture, and his family, are from India. Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral image with its claim is baseless and misleading.
