The ex-Pakistani cricket star—Abdul Razzaq has crushed all the rumours circulating regarding his death in a video message, which he recorded and shared a day before. He made the video in response to the fake news and reports on social media about his accident leading to death.
A post started going viral on social media claiming that Abdul Razzaq has died in a car accident in Lahore and people were really quick for expressing the shock and sympathy without even bothering to confirm the report or news from the authentic sources.
As the post started circulating crazily, it might have reached or come across the former Pakistani cricketer himself, he then decided to shut the fake news down and took not much time for curbing the false information spread.
In a video message, Abdul Razzaq said referring to the post getting viral on the social networking giant—Facebook that he had an accident and as a result of that died. He denied all such reports and said that he is well and alive.
He expressed utter disappointment on the Facebook viral post and said that people must stop themselves from posting such false news on social media without getting the confirmation from genuine sources or without properly investigating the authenticity of the news.
