Recently, a flurry of rumours had been circulating on various portals and social media platforms suggesting that popular Pakistani content creators, Momin Saqib and YouTuber Ducky Bhai, had faced visa rejections for India. However, these speculations have now been debunked by the individuals themselves, who took to social media to clarify the situation.
The YouTuber took to his Instagram Story to denounce the “fake news” and chide portals with “blue ticks” that dispersed the information. While the reports had suggested visa rejection, Ducky Bhai made it clear that there was no truth to these claims. Momin, too, took to X (formerly Twitter) to release an official statement.
The rising star stated, “There’s news circulating that my Indian visa got rejected. Just to clear the air, I haven’t even applied yet! I’d also like to take this opportunity to emphasise the importance of fact-checking and verifying news from authentic sources before spreading misinformation. Thank you.”
Momin’s statement not only debunked the visa rejection rumours but also served as a reminder of the importance of responsible journalism and fact-checking in the age of social media. In an era where information travels at the speed of light through digital channels, the consequences of false information can be significant. Misinformation not only tarnishes reputations but also has the potential to cause unnecessary panic and confusion among the public.
As such, it is crucial for both content creators and consumers of news to exercise caution, seek information from reliable sources, and engage in fact-checking to ensure that they are not contributing to the spread of false information. Responsible journalism and social media ethics play a pivotal role in maintaining the credibility of information in the digital age.
