KARACHI: Picture showing Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah leading religious processions in Karachi has become viral.
You can see the picture here:
Twitter Pakistan immediately began sharing photos with claims that the leader of the Pakistan People’s Party was said to be leading jaloos for Youm-e-Ali in the coastal city.
The Express Tribune analyze the pictures and find them from the main minister who took part in Ashura Mesh on the 10th of Muharram in 2018.
We browse the recorded archives and find visuals from Murad checking the settings.
In the recording the former IGP Sindh Kaleem Imam is seen on his left.
However, Mushtaq Ahmed Mahar has now replaced Imam as Sindh’s top police.

We also found a tweet from the official handle of the Sindh advisor and legal department from 218 that “Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah and CM Murtaza Wahab Adviser lead the 10th Muharram ul Haram Julos procession in Karachi”.
Wahab holds the same piece of paper in his hand in the picture.

The informal Facebook account of Sindh’s chief minister also shared the same picture in 218 here:
Rasheed Channa, the chief minister’s spokesman also confirmed that Murad did not participate this year jaloos.
Member of Parliament Ijazul Haq also shared a picture on Twitter in an attempt to control Sindh’s chief minister but immediately removed the post.
PTI trolls spread this that this is a picture from today! Actually this is not. Old photos of Ashura.
Earlier, PTI spread that CM Sindh was having an iftar party. Infact CM Buzdar they caught the Iftar party!
PTI has lost its path here! pic.twitter.com/eOvojOV6vH
