Just a few days back, a video claiming that Muslims forcefully tied their sacrificial animals at a Hindu temple in Karachi was circulated. The video was of the Shiri Ram Dev Pir Mandir in Karachi and it pissed off a lot of people. MangoBaaz shared that there were concerns that it could have been done with permission, and turns out that’s exactly the case.
People had condemned the tying of qurbaani animals in a temple if it was without permission because they thought it was disrespectful to the Hindu community
There were those who did indeed say that the person could have sought permission for tying the animals inside the temple
Turns out, the person had indeed sought permission of the temple authorities because it was monsoon season
Activist and media personality Jibran Nasir recently visited the area and asked the temple authorities about clarification on the matter that had caused much outrage on social media.
The leaders stated that since it’s monsoon season they allowed the owner of the sacrificial animals to be tied inside the mandir, as a gesture of goodwill
The internet was thankful about finally having a clear answer for the decidedly distressing situation that had happened right before Eid
Thank you, Jibran. It takes time and effort to get to the bottom of such controversies, and not many would do what you did.

People commended Jibran Nasir for unveiling the truth for this matter
For social media was used to break the first side of it to the world and it is only fair that the same medium is used to reveal the other side too.
U are absolutely a superstar we need ppl like u to keep the harmony among diff faiths . Beauty of SM is showing the both sides .

Thanks jibran. Great work. You saved not just the harmony of that community in the city, but also Muslims in India from Hindu extremists.

Corroborating what Jibran Nasir said in the video, it is important to realize that in this age of quick communication, we need to be responsible with our words. While political correctness is the need of the hour, asking questions to verify the authenticity of an item as important, if not more, in the age of fake news.
