Telenor Pakistan has condemned the Quran disgrace in Norway and dismissed rumors that its services were shut down in the country.
In a statement issued by Norwegian Telenor Group Company, Telenor Pakistan expressed concern over the incident on November 16 in the Christian city of Christian Sand and condemned the disgrace of the Quran. It is to be noted that after the November 16 incident, a fake notification filed with PTA is under circulation stating that Telenor services will not be available in Pakistan after December 11.
The fake notification emphasized that all Telenor users should use their mobile phone balance as soon as possible and transfer the money contained in Easy Money Accounts to a bank account or another network.
The notice stated that if consumers do not want to change their mobile number, they can change their number by December 10 on another network.
Telenor Pakistan said that the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority also rejected the notice.
"The company is advising consumers to ignore these rumors and fake messages," the statement said. The PTA, on the other hand, rejected the fake notification and urged the public to access public sources such as the PTA website or social media pages.
