Four days ago Prime Minister Imran Khan announced PM’s dam fund and urged Pakistanis especially overseas’ to donate as much as they can for the cause. The address also revealed the merger of CJP’s and PM’s funds set up to build Diamer Bhasha and Mohmand dam through crowdsourcing. Following the development scores of people have come out in the favor of the initiative which is obvious. However, what is not obvious and hilariously weird is that some Pakistanis have gone into a frenzy and have started doing what Donald Trump hates the most i.e. spreading fake news!! Here’s a list of all the fake dam fund donation tweets that have kept Pakistani internet abuzz for the last 2 days.
It all started when Shahid Khan aka Shad Khan, a Pakistani-American billionaire businessman was rumored to have donated $1 billion for the funds.
