A London-based British Pakistani doctor clarified that a WhatsApp post carrying his name and phone number to malign Begum Kulsoom Nawaz is a fake and he has no involvement of any sort with that.
In a video message, Dr Farooq Malik Bangash regretted that his name was used to cause stress to the Sharif family.
He condemned the person who used his name to pass on a completely baseless allegation.
A message went viral on the social media on Friday in which it was said allegedly by Dr Bangash that he personally went to “79 Harley Street Clinic, London, W1G 8PZ” and found that Begum Kulsoom Nawaz was no more.”
The post made a number of allegations and was passed on by thousands of people who either wanted to verify the claims made in the post or passed on as a true statement.
