As Indian Railways started trains for migrants or ‘Shramik Special trains’ to ferry lakhs of migrants stranded in various parts of the country amid the coronavirus-induced lockdown, a picture of some children wearing skull caps serving water at a railway station started doing the rounds on social media with a claim that children from local madrasa are providing water to migrants boarding trains.
Children‘s from local madrasa providing cool water to migrants boarding trains.. Islam teaches humanity” – the caption read.

FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found the claim to be false.
On putting the image through Reverse Image Search, we found the same picture on a Blogspot post dated May 21, 2016.

We also found the same picture shared on Facebook three years ago.

Though NewsMobile could not independently verify the origin of the picture. But, the above information establishes that picture in question is old as it was already on the internet much before Shramik Special trains started to ferry migrants.
