Not only this, but Yasir’s birthdate and birthplace have been also improved.
Pakistani web customers were amazed not too long ago to see Google look for effects displaying Ertugrul-famed Esra Bilgic as her parent. It was afterwards observed that the data was actually sourced from Wikipedia and the lookup motor has nothing at all to do with it.
Saqib Qayyum, who functions on a voluntary basis for the internet site, reported “no strategy why but his bio site was closely vandalised past 7 days but webpage is locked now”.
He explained, “someone (now permanently blocked) extra Esra as his mother on 6th Oct but regretably the change went unnoticed and right after it was rectified previous week, even more vandalism began”.
Qayyum, regarded as by the international media as a “prominent Wikipedia editor from Pakistan”, noted that the updates went unnoticed mainly because of absence of editors from the country.
The webpage log shared by the editor displays various entries from unidentified accounts.
“In one occasion, another person even attempted to integrate Ertugrul’s Engin Altan Düzyatan as Yasir’s father, and Marvi Sirmed and Aziz Mian Qawwal as his wife or husband.”
Considering the fact that the internet site is available for everyone and any individual can edit the pages, hundreds of improvements are created on a normal foundation. “This is not unconventional,” he underscored.
An individual even tried mentioning porn star Dani Daniels as his husband or wife, he reported.
The actor’s Wikipedia website page has been up to date with the proper facts but owing to some unidentified explanation Google is however displaying the exact benefits.
Yasir Hussain, well known for his witty and quirky responses on social media, is not bothered at all by this trolling.
Even though responding to a query, the actor said that it happened months back when he commented on the Turkish actors.
“I do not know what is mistaken with people and I really don’t imagine in webpages like Wikipedia exactly where you can go and alter info in accordance to your psychological well being I really do not know what is it on about you or anybody else it is not that vital I consider for me.”
“These controversies do not trouble me.”
