Rumours of legendary actor passing away emerged late Tuesday night after news of him being critically ill was reported yesterday.
However, the news of him passing away are completely untrue, Abid’s family has shared.
His daughters, Iman Ali and Rahma Ali took to social media to slam those spreading fake news.
“The social media magnate whose drive is to post unverified news of such grave matter is utterly disgusting and disturbing,” the Khuda Kay Liye actor shared. “Our family has been through turmoil all in the name of breaking news. I hope such bloggers are brought to justice in public eye. The power of written words is very strong and should be treated with respect.”
Rahma also took to Instagram and asked everyone to stop spreading the rumours.
Earlier, Rahma revealed in an Instagram post on Monday that the veteran star has been hospitalised in a critical condition.
“Got treatments done, tried almost e try available medication, tasbeehs and Surah e Rehman too but now all the doctors have given us their final verdict. Basically they’ve told us there is nothing they can do to save him,” she added.
Requesting for prayers, Rahma continued, “Par Allah se barri koi taaqat nahi hai. (There’s not bigger power than the Almighty). Humare sath agar ap logon ki duaa bhi mil jaayen tou shayad Allah sun he lain kisi ki (If you pray with us for him then maybe Allah may listen to someone).”
We wish the veteran actor a speedy recovery.
