Yet another fake image targeting the Church is now being circulated on the social media.

With a desc mentioned in the picture as “These pictures of 'Our Lady of Dolours Church' (Our Lady of Sorrows) were taken on my way to the railway station when returning to Mumbai.” This Church named Our Lady of Dolours Church is in Dahanu, Maharashtra, India

Dahanu (Marathi: डहाणू ) is a small, sleepy coastal city and a municipal council in Thane district in the western state of Maharashtra, India on the shores of Arabian Sea. I spent the whole day yesterday (13/04/12) relaxing at resort on a Dahanu beach.
