Mehwish Hayat schools Tarek Fatah for not fact-checking before tweeting
Tamgha-e-Imtiaz recipient and one of Pakistan’s renowned actress Mehwish Hayat slammed Pakistani-Canadian columnist Tarek Fatah for representing a scene from the movie Load Wedding wrongly.
Tarek Fatah, who is known for frequently tweeting and making media appearances in which he is raging against Pakistan and Islam, has posted a video on his Twitter that shows a woman refusing to inoculate her child from a polio worker.
“It’s a scene from my movie Load Wedding, the polio worker is me and that woman an actress. Through the film we were raising awareness of hte issue. Glad to see our performances were so convincing.“
Tarek didn’t accept his error nor Mehwish’s correction or any of the hundreds of people calling him out, for that matter. He did, however, delete his tweet around noon, which might be just as well.
