The picture has been shared in various WhatsApp group and other social media websites claiming that “See this photograph carefully. This has buses, cars, jeep, ambulance, and school-going kids, office-goers, commuters and pedestrians. The ambulance must be carrying patients but it’s more important to worship Allah.
