Ahsan Iqbal and his series of Twitter lies

Pakistan’s political sphere is quite heated up once again while the political rivalry is taking interesting turns. However, while different perspectives are important as they educate the people on multiple perspectives, often it raises the concerns regarding the misinformation and fake news.

PML-N’s Ahsan Iqbal also had to face an embarrassing situation in this regard, as he went on sharing a piece of unverified news and writing about it. Yesterday he shared a claim made by a fake page, expressing his ‘shock’ over it. The picture he said made unverified claims about the former Chief Justice Saqib Nisar. He has been previously criticized for his activities out of his domain and is responsible for political influence.

The picture read:

Former Chief Justice Saqib Nisar told a gathering in Toronto PTI would have never come to power without his campaign for PTI, confirmed he met Imran Khan 8 times at night during Panama hearing and spared him in his Niazi Offshore case because he had no money trail, said he loves PTI. 

Ahsan Iqbal showed his surprise and ”shock” at a statement attributed to him regarding his alleged support to Prime Minister Imran Khan and his party during the Panama case hearing.

This claim was made by an account named Sidrah Memon, an alleged former Pakistani national, in a tweet. However, without verifying the authenticity of the account, Ahsan Iqbal quoted it saying:

“This is serious stuff can’t believe. Can anyone confirm?” – Iqbal questioned.

However, he had to face embarrassment as the people who attended it went on schooling him, saying former CJP made no such statements and it is fabricated. They further suggested to him that a man of such stature should check authenticity before posting something.
