News of Farida Jalal’s death spread like wildfire on social networking sites on Sunday.
However, Farida Jalal said,
“I am hale and hearty. I don’t know where these baseless rumors are coming from. Initially, I laughed, but from last 30 mins my phone have been constantly ringing and everybody is asking the same question. It’s a bit irritating, I wonder why people spread such rumors.”
