However, Faizal issued a clarification on Monday and states that the allegations made against him are baseless and he’s being judged over the edited video.
He captioned the video as, “My Intention was never to hurt anyone in any Capacity. As a social media influencer, I realize my responsibility and apologize to anyone who was offended by the video @ncwindia”
Faizal Siddiqui is Amir Siddiqui’s brother, who has recently been in the news over Youtubers v/s TikTokers debate with Carry Minati.
