Some Dawn readers also showed their concern on this issue:

I am also a reader of Daily Dawn since last 20 years and on a serious note i really didn’t like the way Cyril Almeida carry the news on most important issues. I really miss the Ardsher Kawasji’s editorials in esteemed pages of Dawn. Now on this fake news row, we expect a positive response from Dawn editorial and specifically from Mubashar Zaidi.
