New Delhi. Social media has become such a powerful tool in today’s time. Which if used properly can make anyone famous in minutes. In today’s time, many such examples have been seen in front of us, which have been given special recognition by social media. Talk about Bhuban Badyakar, who sells raw almonds or Sahdev Dirdo, who became popular by singing the song ‘Bachpan Ka Pyaar’… he was made a star overnight by social media. However, with the increasing use of social media, people have started using it for wrong things too. You must have also read such news on social media many times which has nothing to do with the truth. These rumors are spread more especially about well-known celebrities. A Pakistani cricket team bowler is falling prey to some such rumors. The news of whose death has been covered on social media as well as local media also showed it. Now after all this, the Pakistani batsman himself came forward and he also expressed his displeasure on the media.
Pakistani bowler Usman Shinwari has become a victim of the fake death runoff. Actually, something happened that during a domestic tournament being played in Pakistan, a player fainted while fielding during the game. The player is later picked up from the field and taken for treatment. Now this video is becoming increasingly viral on social media. People are spreading rumors that the player seen in the video is Usman Shinwari that he has died.

The surprising thing is that as soon as the video became viral, the local media of Pakistan also ran this news without investigation. After seeing the news in the media, people started paying tribute to the Pakistani bowler and phone calls started coming to his house. Seeing the growing ruckus on the matter, now the player himself came forward and informed about his survival and also reprimanded the media.

Pakistani bowler Usman Shinwari tweeted, “I am absolutely fine thank Allah. People are calling my whole family. I want to say with respect that before running such a big news, please confirm it. Thanks.” Well, Pakistani bowler Usman Shinwari came out and put an end to this false news, but when will this type of spreading of wrong things on social media stop is the big question.
