Musharraf, Sharif and Zardari are ‘famous Facebook friends’

An expert, however, said that politicians don’t visit their profile pages.

Lahore: Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari, PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif, former president Pervez Musharraf, PML-Q chief Shujaat Hussain, and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan are friends on social networking website Facebook.

Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and MQM chief Altaf Husssain, however, have not added any political figure on their profile pages.

According to the Facebook profile page of Sharif, out of total 4810 friends, he enjoys the company of Musharraf, Hussain, Zardari, Imran, Pakistan Supreme Court Bar Association president Asma Jahangir, PPP co-chairman Bilawal Bhutto and All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) secretary general Muhammad Ali Saif.
Zardari has added Hussain, former Punjab chief minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi and Attaullah Khan Esakhelvi as his friends, the Nation reports.

An expert, however, said that the politicians don’t visit their profile pages, but special persons of their party run them.
