Fake news of the death of veteran actor Abid Ali spread overnight, a day after he was hospitalized in a critical condition.
Abid Ali’s daughter and a famous Pakistani model, Iman Ali rejected all the news circulating about her father’s death and condemns the “social media magnets” and websites that published the rumor of Abid Ali’s death.
“I would like to thank all those who sent their prayers for my father. He is alive and all our our family are praying for his recovery. The social media magnates whose drive is to post unverified news of such grave matter is utterly disgusting. Our family has been through turmoil all in the name of breaking news. I hope such bloggers are brought to justice in public eye. The power of written word is very strong and should be treated with respect.”
Her sister, Rahma Ali also used her social media accounts and requested people to stop spreading fake news about her father.
