    The NEC requires things to be installed per manufacturer's instructions. The size and number of wires permitted in the lug shown should be listed on the label inside the panel. If the info is absent from the panel it can usually be be gleaned from an online catalog.

    Listed or labeled equipment
    shall be installed and used in accordance with any instructions
    included in the listing or labeling.

    The conductors are way unequal in size. The lug is not rated for two wires even if they were equal.
    That looks like a main neutral lug with a branch circuit ground tucked in.
    It is three times wrong.
    I am sure JP can supply pages of code for you to study.
