Recently, the news of the former Pakistan cricketer Abdul Razzaq dying in an accident broke through to shock all the cricket fans. A post on Facebook had confirmed and the news spread like wildfire as the world took notice of the same. But as it turns out, nothing as such has happened to the cricketer and it was a fake news. Razzaq himself has posted a video on Youtube stating that he is safe and has lashed out at the people spreading the rumours.
One of the best all-rounders of his era, Razzaq has been in the news for some days now. He had left everyone shell-shocked by equating Ahmed Shehzad‘s ability to the Indian greats like Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag during a panel discussion on a Pakistani news channel. Unfortunately, Shehzad has been found positive in the dope test conducted by PCB and is set to get banned for at least three months.
I am safe
Coming back to the fake news of his accidental death, Abdul Razzaq has prepared a video which has been posted by the Pakistan editor Saj Sadiq on his official Twitter handle. He has confirmed that the news of his death was absolutely fake and he is very much fine. He also believed that such news should not be given on social media.
“Hi everyone, I am Abdul Razzaq. Someone has spread the rumours on Facebook stating that I died in an accident. This is not called for and no one has the right to spread such fake news. Such rumours should not be spread on social media. I am very much fit and fine by the grace of God,” he said in the video.
Now it remains to be seen if he takes any action against the one who faked the news of his death to leave the fans in a state of shock.
