Fact Check: Is Cristiano Ronaldo Donating 45 Crore for a Mosque in Ayodhya? 

Claim

Recently, an interesting piece of news has been circulating on social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram. The news claims that renowned Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is generously donating 45 crore taka for the construction of a mosque in Ayodhya, India.

See some posts that promote the claim- here & here.

Fact

After investigating numerous Indian and international media platforms, no evidence regarding Ronaldo’s alleged 45 crore taka donation can be found. Furthermore, Cristiano Ronaldo’s verified  Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram accounts, news articles, or official endorsements make no mention of such a donation.

 However, while searching for information about the mosque in Ayodhya, a report published on January 22 in the Indian media outlet Hindustan Times was discovered. According to the report, a trust called the Indo-Islamic Cultural Foundation has been formed to construct the mosque named Muhammad bin Abdullah Mosque in Ayodhya, India. However, no details about donations were mentioned in this report.

Due to the lack of credible sources and substantial evidence, the claim that Cristiano Ronaldo contributed 45 crore taka to the mosque in Ayodhya is found to be unsubstantiated. This information has been widely shared on social media, but its reliability remains questionable.

Result: False
