Truth

The mosque in the photo is from Katra Market, Sagar, Madhya Pradesh, not Mumbai.

We found many results in reverse image search, we selected the filter “before 1st September 2020” and found following tweet made on 2nd Aug 2020, which called it Katra Market, Sagar, MP

With Katra added to the image we found few blogs with the same image with link back to a Dainik Bhaskar news. The article claimed this photo is from Katra Bazar, Sagar, MP, opened after Lockdown.

Further we searched for it on Google Maps and found the same mosque, Jama Masjid.

On the left below is a clipped part of the Mosque from the viral image while the right one is the photo of the Mosque itself in Sagar, MP

 

Following is the video of the same Mosque –
