Ruling Awami League (AL) yesterday alleged that false, fabricated and confusing information are being spread on social media platform Facebook from fake accounts and pages in the name of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, her sister Sheikh Rehana, daughter Saima Wazed Hossain Putul and Rehana's son Radwan Mujib Siddiq.
In a press statement, the party urged users or administrators of these accounts and pages to declare their pages as “unofficial”, and said they would take legal action otherwise.
It also said Sheikh Hasina, Sheikh Rehana and Saima Wazed Hossain Putul have never had any official Facebook account or page. The PM's son and ICT affairs adviser Sajeeb Wazed has a verified Facebook page (faceboook.com/sajeeb.a.wazed), and Radwan Mujib Siddiq, also the trustee of research organisation Center for Research and Information (CRI), has a personal Facebook account (faceboook .com/ radwan.siddiq), which they operate themselves.
Aside from that, Awami League has its presence on social media platforms with verified Facebook page (facebook.com/awamileague.1949), verified Twitter handle (twitter.com/albd1971) and YouTube account (youtube.com/user/myalbd), the release said.
