A man has reacted with surprise to seeing his photograph used in a fake story spread on social media that an Imam kept a mosque’s doors closed to Storm Harvey victims.
Ibrahim Hindy, a Canadian Imam from Toronto, identified himself in the photograph used in a story which claimed Imam “Aswat Turads” of “Ramashan mosque” near Houston refused to help flood victims and said “we are forbidden from helping infidels.”
However, Mr Hindy claims he has never been to Texas and during the flooding he was in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, performing the Hajj pilgrimage.
