A picture of a burqa-clad man is doing rounds on social media and it has been claimed that he changed his outfit to be part of women protestors, protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) at Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh.
The caption of the picture in Hindi read: “शाहीन बाग मे सलमा का बुरखा पहनकर बलमा भी पहुंच रहे है, बिरयानी और 500 का सवाल है!भइ”
