A video of a huge crowd of women wearing Burqa rushing in a mall is viral claiming it’s from Mohamad Ali Road, Mumbai, while others claim it to be from Saudi Arabia, but in both viral cases, it’s claimed to be a clear violation of social distancing amidst Corona Pandemic.ย  This video is mostly viral on WhatsApp.








On reverse image search of the very first frame of the video, we found it was uploaded in Dec 2019 claimed to be from Saudi Arabia.

Following tweet was made on 3rd Dec 2019 claiming by a (unverified) Local News house Akhbar Makkah. i.e. NewsPaper Mecca.


The tweet read – “ู‡ุฐุง ู…ุง ุญุฏุซ ูŠูˆู… ุฃู…ุณ ุนู†ุฏู…ุง ุฃุนู„ู† ู…ุญู„ ููŠ ุงู„ุดูˆู‚ูŠุฉ ุนู† ุชุฎูุถูŠุงุช ู„ู…ู†ุชุฌุงุช ุจู€ 5 ุฑูŠุงู„ุŒ ู…ู…ุง ุงุณุชุฏุนู‰ ุชูˆุงุฌุฏ ูุฑู‚ ู…ู† ุงู„ุฏูˆุฑูŠุงุช ุงู„ุฃู…ู†ูŠุฉ.

Google Translation: This is what happened yesterday when a store in Al-Shawqiyya announced discounts for products of 5 riyals, which required the presence of teams from security patrols.

Al-Shawqiyya is near Mecca in Saudi Arabia


Someone also tweeted a photo from outside of the mall


Further, we found a product with company name/logo written in Urdu.
