According to the fact checking site Faktiskt.se, it was an eight year old image that has been used for propaganda purposes for several years that has once again spread since it has been shared in the big Facebook group "Stand up for Sweden". The image is said to show how Swedish school children are "forced to kneel and pray to Allah" but actually the image show a theme day at a school in Kristianstad, where students told each other about their respective families' traditions.

The same image has been shared in the Russian-language websites as an example of "European integration" and "Refugees teach British children how to pray Namaz".  Liveinternet, Ruan
