No sooner did the trailer of upcoming Netflix series Messiah make its way to social media, all hell broke loose as Dajjal started trending on Twitter in Pakistan. 

Created by Michael Petroni, (The Book Thief) Messiah follows the story of a man who claims to be a messiah and has plenty of miracles up his sleeve to back the claims. 

The main character of the messiah is played by Mehdi Dehbi. The messiah is being investigated by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) who are just not ready to believe his claims, despite witnessing a string of mind-boggling miracles from Dehbi's character.  

The show will debut on January 1, 2020 on Netflix. 

Many in Pakistan took to Twitter to discuss the series. Some thought the Netflix series was an elaborate scheme to prepare the world for the end times. Others were alarmed as to whether the Antichrist had actually been spotted somewhere and took to the microblogging site to find out.
