KARACHI: Actor Faisal Qureshi has been criticized on social media for taking off his mask in public.
A user on micro-blogging site Twitter wrote that yesterday I saw actor Faisal Qureshi in a mall where he was not wearing a mask and he was busy taking pictures with the fans, as per the instructions issued by the government but because of the actors. The people also did not act.
Responding to a tweet from a user, actor Faisal Qureshi said, “I was wearing a mask. However, some fans asked me to take off my mask to take a selfie. I did so. If I didn’t fulfill my wish, people would call me proud.
But you are an opinion leader, a trend setter. If you had insisted on keeping the mask on, it would set an example and some of your fans who were there would follow you. With fame comes responsibility. Take care and stay safe.
