The Awami League has appealed for closing down some fake Facebook pages that are being operated under the names of the party, the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu, the Prime Minister and her family members.
In a post published on AL's verified official Facebook page, unidentified admins of these fake pages were requested to unpublish them.
'It is noticed with concern that some fake Facebook pages are publishing confusing information and news about AL, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Sheikh Rehana, Radwan Mujib Siddiq, and Sayma Wazed Putul,' said the post.
"So the accounts in their name are all fake and operated by 'mischief makers'," the post said.
Another Facebook page is operated in the name of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, though the Father of the Nation was killed in 1975. That is obviously fake.
Only Hasina's son Sajeeb Wazed Joy, also Information Technology Advisor to the Prime Minister, maintains a Facebook page and his updates often make news.
What adds to the problem is that the admin of these pages claim to be 'official' -- the Awami League described that as a 'totally false claim'.
