A post with an image of Aamir Khan standing with two persons is being shared on Facebook with a claim that the persons standing next to Aamir are terrorists. Let’s try to analyze the claim made in the post.

The archived version of the post can be found here.

Claim: In the image, Aamir Khan is standing with Junaid Samshed and Moulana Tariq, who are Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists.

Fact: The persons standing beside Aamir Khan are Junaid Jamshed and Moulana Tariq but they are not terrorists. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE. 

When searched with the keywords ‘Aamir photo with Junaid and Tariq’ on Google, it was found that the photo was taken in 2012 when Aamir went to Haj. The names of the persons standing next to Aamir Khan are Junaid Jamshed (not Junaid Samshed) and Maulana Tariq Jameel. Both of them are Pakistan nationals and Islamic preachers but they are not terrorists. In an event, Junaid Jamshed told his followers about when and where he met Aamir Khan. Also, Junaid Jamshed is not alive now, he died in a plane crash in 2016.

To sum it up, the persons standing next to Aamir Khan are not terrorists.
