Professor sahab somebody running a page on facebook under the name of Fanclub of Hoodbhoye.
Rather he share your work or research he is busy in ridiculing Pak Army and other state institutions, which i am sure is not your words or line of thinking.
We know your work and research which is commendable. You must stop him otherwise it will damage your personality and research efforts in the eyes of young generation.
