Fans warmly welcomed Anwar Maqsood on social media and within short time he was followed by over 18,000 followers.
Earlier, he had complained that there are fake profiles in his name on different social media platforms.
Talking to The News on Friday, Maqsood clarified that he did not have any laptop and gadget to operate any social media account. He said that he had a very small phone for communication. “I don’t have any social media account,” he stressed, adding that he was not even on WhatsApp.
After every five or six days, he said, there was a tweet from some profile having his name and picture against different institutions of the country. He said someone was trying to use his name to get fame.
