Former National Assembly (NA) Deputy Speaker and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Qasim Suri shared a fake screenshot of CNN covering PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s rally in Haripur on Wednesday.
“PTI Power Show in Haripur, Massive Crowed,” read the caption shared in the fake CNN screenshot shared by Suri.
Soon after Suri tweeted the fake CNN screenshot with the caption, “Hunnh aaraam aye?” (Are you satisfied now?), several people pointed out that it was fake.
CNN journalist Sophia Saifi also replied to Suri’s tweet.
Suri deleted his tweet after being called out for posting a fake screenshot with wrong spellings of ‘crowd’.
However, Twitterati did not spare him and soon “crowed” started trending on Twitter.
This is not the first time that a PTI leader shared a fake screenshot.
In April, PTI leader Ali Muhammad Khan went overboard as he shared a photo from the United States (US) National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), claiming that it was from the party’s rally.
The picture shared by the PTI leader actually shows the lights in the Iberian Peninsula, which falls in Spain and Portugal.
