A picture of Rosa Iftar is going viral on social media. The picture shows India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, the first President Rajendra Prasad, the first Law Minister Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar and the first Education Minister Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, including many other great leaders. It can be seen in this picture that all the veteran leaders are having food at the same table in a big hall.

Social media users are claiming that this is a picture of India’s first Iftar party after independence, hosted by Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. Sharing the picture on Twitter, many users wrote – “Independent India’s first Iftar party”
