Pakistan lost SemiFinal to Australia and many people blamed Hassan Ali. This was taken as a golden opportunity by so many fake news and propaganda creators to use the name of Hassan Ali and his wife Samyah.
Firstly a trend on Twitter was started by a few Indian citizens that Hassan Ali is being targeted by Pakistani people because he belongs to the Shia sect. Many Pakistanis came forward and denied this fake propaganda.
This was not enough as another thread started that Hassan Ali’s wife Samyah Arzoo was being threatened because she belongs to Indian origin and some people steep further low and threatened the couple’s daughter.
But this was all hoax as Hassan Ali’s wife Samyah herself rebuffed the claims as she took to Instagram and mentioned that she and her family has not received any threats.

“Saw many tweets circulating from this fake account that I, Hassan and my daughter are getting threats from the people of Pakistan, which is absolutely wrong,” she wrote on an Instagram story.
She further mentioned that she is not even on Twitter, someone created a fake profile on Samyah’s name to spread fake propaganda. She also requested people to report the fake account.
People on social media shared their opinions about the catch drop by Hassan Ali but Pakistani people did not threaten the family. This was all a setup propaganda by a few people who want to portray a bad image of Pakistan in front of the world.
