While most of the people shared screenshots of a blasphemous tweet which they said was allegedly posted by Maruf Zaidi, others advised Twitter users not to believe anything on the internet since text on any website can be manipulated and changed easily.

Twitter users have demanded the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to take notice of the controversial tweet.

Meanwhile, Maruf Zaidi’s Twitter account seems to have been deleted following the accusations.
