Renowned Pakistani singer Bilal Maqsood recently took to Twitter to address a concerning matter related to a fake account impersonating his father, the legendary writer and satirist, Anwar Maqsood. Bilal expressed worry about his father’s safety due to such deceptive activities and urged his followers to report the fake account.
The singer clarified that his father does not use social media and the authentic account only had three posts, created to report all the fake ones. He emphasized that these fraudulent tweets pose a risk to his father’s life and requested everyone to report the account.
Despite the situation, Anwar Maqsood joined Twitter and uploaded videos to verify his authenticity and combat the fake accounts. However, the videos were reposted on fake accounts, causing confusion in identifying the genuine profile. Still, the determined television presenter addressed the misunderstanding in another video, mentioning his personal account’s username to debunk the mystery surrounding the real account.
The issue of fake accounts using the writer’s name to post political statements came to light through a social media video. Anwar Maqsood clarified that he does not operate any social media handles and disavowed any political statements attributed to him on social media, humorously mentioning his technological limitations.
This incident sheds light on the prevalent problem of online impersonation and fake accounts, posing potential risks to public figures. The efforts made by Anwar Maqsood’s family and supporters to identify and report these fraudulent profiles underscore the importance of cybersecurity and vigilance in the digital age.
