FACTLY has found that the photo is related to Abdul Ghaffar Khan’s funeral. When the same photo went viral last year with the same claim, FACTLY has written a detailed fact-check article, which can be read here. Now, the image has been revived in the wake of ‘Republic TV Editor Arnab Goswami’s comments on Sonia Gandhi in the context of Palghar lynching incident.
