Soon after the unfortunate incident happened in Karachi where the PIA plane crashed near Karachi Airport, many false information and rumors started floating across the social media. In this period of crisis, it is such a shame to misguide people on a crucial issue.
There were reports on social media that after the plane crash, the residents tried to steal jewelry and other valuables from the victims instead of helping them out. Well, that’s not true and it just portrayed the Pakistanis in a bad light. Some people also claimed that philanthropist Faisal Edhi witnessed the looting and instantly tried to rescue women of the ill-fated aircraft.
But, Edhi denied all such rumors on a TV show and said that he didn’t witness any such happening.
Spoke to faisal edhi on @ZaraHatKay_Dawn right now And he says he has not witnessed, or heard of, any looting of the plane or the damaged houses. Please be responsible when sharing such claims. #PIAPlaneCrash

What are we and what we are trying to do? sometimes humanity just seems like a myth. The fake information and rumors malign Pakistan and Pakistanis. Especially when our rival nation India celebrates our every loss. They did the same this time too..
While people in Jagat Puri in North Delhi only took mangoes after fruitseller Chotu Khan ran away after he had altercation with rickshaw pullers. But look at Pakistan. #PIA_Plane_Crashed in Kazimabad, Model Colony, Karachi & now Pakistani Awam looting jewellery #planecrash 😒 👇 pic.twitter.com/5Hrlmyjezb

Rescue workers caught stealing jewellery & goods of passengers from the crash site.
This is really shameful, even much shameful when Osama was caught in Pakistan.#PIAPlaneCrash

People are heartless. Awaam was looting the jewellery from dead
bodies of women from plane crash before rescue personnel arrived and saved the dead bodies.
Insaaniyat mar chuki 🙂

Faisal Edhi and the team is trying to secure dead bodies of women who were wearing some jewellery. People tried to take those off. What a shameful act from people! Act of inhumanity. #PIAPlaneCrash

The name PAKISTAN on the burnt aircraft remained intact
Let us tell you another interesting fact, where the entire PIA aircraft was burnt and destroyed. It also killed almost all the passengers and crew members except for 3 survivors. But, the name PAKISTAN on one of the aircraft parts remained intact. No matter what we as a nation have to stay together and make our country proud instead of maligning the name of the country and the countrymen.
This name is not easy to destroy. A picture from yesterday's #PIAPlaneCrash site. pic.twitter.com/5QDKhM0Duw
