A video is getting viral on social media sites. While sharing this video, users are claiming that a person wanted to pray during the flying flight, but when the passengers and the flight captain stopped offering namaz, he wanted to break the windshield of the flight.

A user named @FltLtAnoopVerma tweeted, “First, a Namazi wanted to perform Namaaz right inside the Aisle of a flying Plane when passengers & captain of the flight intervened, he took off his shirt & wanted to break the glass it would have been disastrous for many passengers.”

Fact Check: 

To find out the reality of the viral video, the DFRAC team did a simple search on Google. the team found a report from INDIA TODAY. “A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) passenger started punching the seats and kicking the window of the aircraft, causing a lot of inconvenience to the passengers. A video of the incident has gone viral.

Meanwhile, we also found a report on the website called PARDAFASH, which reads- “Karachi: A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) passenger suddenly started kicking on the window of the aircraft and punching the seats, causing an extreme uproar for the other passengers on board the aircraft.” The video of the incident is going viral. And netizens are making various comments about this incident.

In this context, we came across a video in a Pakistani news channel The News in which it can be heard that the actions of passenger Osama Abdullah, who created a ruckus on the PIA’s Peshawar to Dubai flight, had disturbed the crew and passengers. The man was arrested after the passenger Osama kicked and damaged the windshield of the plane, a PIA spokesman said, adding that when the staff stopped him, the passenger tried to attack them as well.

Conclusion:

It is clear from the fact check of DFRAC that the passengers did not want to pray during the flying flight, but they deliberately wanted to create a ruckus, and there is no mention of namaz anywhere in the media reports, which is why the claim of social media users is wrong.
