Verification: Danish Kaneria is not in the picture shared
The post doing rounds with the image is false. Danish Kaneria is not even in the picture and this picture is well after Yousuf converted to Islam and became Mohammad Yousuf. Yousuf publicly announced his conversion to Islam from Christianity. Therefore the photo does not show him as a Christian “being asked” to offer namaz. The information was confirmed on Twitter by a verified user. The picture is being used by various users with different type of false claims to it. Inzamam-ul-Haq’s was captain of Pakistan team and he never forced anyone to offer prayers in the team or to keep a beard. Please check the links below to know the facts:
Extreme left of the photo is Abdul Rauf (Pak masseur) and not Danish Kaneria. Yousaf at the time of this photo was Mohammad Yousaf. https://t.co/fGeyfRX4pQ

I have never forced anyone to offer prayers’ – Inzamam
24 Oct, 2006: Talking to BBC’s Urdu Service, Inzamam said, “I have never forced anyone to offer prayers in the team or to keep a beard. There are only three players in the team who went to England who have a beard: Shahid Afridi, Mohammad Yousuf and myself. I’ve never linked team selection to offering prayers and reports suggesting otherwise are all wrong.” Read more
Pakistan ponders the conversion of Mohammad Yousuf: In England, supporters await word on wrenched knees and wretched batting. In Pakistan, however, the most emotive topic of conversation ahead of the first Test in Multan has not been Michael Vaughan’s fitness or England’s woes with the willow, but religion – in particular the decision of Yousuf Youhana to abandon Christianity, embrace Islam and adopt the name Mohammad Yousuf.
