Just recently, Legit.ng sighted a photo on the micro-blogging platform, Twitter, which was shared by a controversial Islamic cleric, Imam Tawhidi.
Tawhidi had taken to his verified page on the social media platform with a photo that captured the alleged precautionary method clerics in Iran are taking against coronavirus.
