An image showing a painting of Lord Krishna on the engine of a train is widely circulating on social media. Users claim that the devotees of ISKCON temple have painted the image of Lord Krishna on a train in Russia. 

The caption of the post states, “This is the train of Russia, where the people of ISKCON temple have got the painting of Shri Krishna ji on the engine. So that people all over the world can know about Krishna ji. Now just imagine if this engine had been in India, then there would have been a ruckus, from Parliament to the whole country. It’s bitter but it’s true that we ourselves are the cause of our downfall.”

The image of the train does not have any depiction of Lord Krishna. The original image has Metro written on the engine instead of Lord Krishna’s image.
