After Pakistan's former prime minister Imran Khan defied attempts to arrest him in March 2023, a photo of a huge crowd was shared by pro-Khan social media accounts that falsely claimed it showed supporters gathered outside his house. The picture was actually taken five years earlier at a demonstration in Washington DC calling for tougher gun laws.
