What is the truth?

When watching the video closely, ‘Talabat’, a food delivery vehicle is seen in the video. Talabat is operated in most Middle East countries including UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Oman but is not available in Pakistan.

In addition to it, the steering wheels can be seen on the left side of the car which is the opposite in the case of Pakistan cars.

The viral video has the TikTok watermark ‘ahom75uddin’ in it. When searching for the profile, it is found that the video was posted a week back.

The same person also posted the same video on his Facebook page on 11, January 2023 mentioning it as ‘Dubai Masjid’.

Though we could not ascertain where this video was captured we could confirm that the video is not from Pakistan.

Tarek Fatah earlier shared an old video of a verbal spat between medical professionals during surgery inside an operation theatre of a hospital in Rajasthan claiming it as Pakistan hospital. Youturn fact-checked the claim and published an article on it.
