Abrarul Haq, Pakistani singer and chairman of Pakistan Red Crescent Society allegedly infringed the idea of an existing app, ProPakistani reported.
Abrar Ul Haq and Pakistan Red Crescent Society launched an emergency response application under the name of “Muhafiz.” However, they are accused of copying already available application ‘Mohafiz” by HumanTek.
It bears mentioning that Abrar and his team launched their app at the Muahfiz Youth Force Launching Ceremony that took place on the 5th of April 2020 in Lahore. The honour was done by President Arif Alvi.
The original Mohafiz application was launched almost 5 years ago. It was developed by HumanTek after 2014’s APS attack as an Emergency service smartphone application.
According to the CEO of HumanTek, they have saved over 8,000 lives. Furthermore, this application is already downloaded by almost 80,000 plus users.
Since the situation came out, Abrarul Haq has not commented on this matter.
Despite several allegations against each other, officials on both sides are trying to resolve this matter amicably.
Fahad Khan, the founder of real ‘Mohafiz’ said that both sides should work together to server humanity under dire situation rather than competing with each other.
