If this story is true, it just shows how images are easily grabbed off the internet and used for fake stories. Since no-one is checking, only someone related to the real person could let him know – then hope the media would propagate the true story. Of course, using a sim is much easier and free of complications.

A Mississauga imam who had his image used in a fake news article about mosques refusing to shelter victims of Hurricane Harvey says he’s never even been to Texas. A photo of Ibrahim Hindy of the Dar Al-Tawheed Islamic Centre was the main image of multiple hoax articles about an imam who refused to shelter non-Muslims displaced by Hurricane Harvey in their mosques.
