Pakistan men’s team assistant coach Azhar Mahmood has declared that he will pursue legal action against those spreading false allegations and narratives about his family. Following Pakistan’s disappointing exit from the T20 World Cup at the group stage, Mahmood expressed his distress over the baseless claims. He urged people to stop engaging with these false narratives and warned that he would legally address those responsible.

“I have heard some false allegations and narratives circulating on social media and other media platforms. I categorically state that these allegations are entirely baseless and false, and it is extremely upsetting to hear them,” Mahmood wrote on X.

“This culture of falsely accusing and misleading people to believe a false narrative is now getting ridiculous and dangerous. Speaking without evidence and misconstruing facts is a criminal offence, and those engaging in such behaviour will be dealt with through legal action,” he wrote.

“Pursuing an increase in followers and media attention by spreading falsehoods is downright unacceptable. I will be pursuing legal advice against those responsible for making these false allegations towards me and my family, and strict action will be taken accordingly. We will not be discussing this matter further on social media. I urge everyone to avoid engaging with or entertaining these harmful narratives as it is essential to put an end to such behaviour in our media culture,” he concluded.

Geo News had previously reported that team captain Babar Azam also planned to take legal action against YouTubers and former cricketers who accused him of misconduct during the T20 World Cup campaign. Sources told Geo News that a social media campaign targeted Babar during Pakistan’s run, leaving him feeling disheartened. The Pakistan Cricket Board’s legal department is reportedly gathering evidence related to these statements.
