A digital news media platform by the name of Concept TV News posted a picture on Twitter with the text ’King Charles picks Pakistani origin, Dr. Zareen Roohi, as a special advisor and wrote: “ British monarch #KingCharlesIII has appointed Pakistani-origin Dr. Zareen Roohi as his special adviser.

Pakistani actress and social activist Sher Shinwari retweeted this post and wrote: “King Charles is friend of Imran Khan therefore he trusts Pakistanis more than Indians”.
To know the reality of this viral claim, the Dfrac team reverse-searched it on Google. Meanwhile, we found some posts and media reports, claiming that she refuted these claims by sharing a post on Facebook from her official Facebook account.
In addition to that, a news website named Minutemirror published news with the headline: “Dr. Zareen Roohi Ahmed refutes news of her being appointed as advisor to King Charles”. In this news, Minutemirror revealed: “Dr. Zareen Roohi Ahmed, the British Pakistani entrepreneur and CEO of Gift Wellness Ltd, has officially refuted the speculation surrounding her alleged appointment as an advisor to King Charles”.
Not only this but the news website, ‘International the News’ also published this news with the headline: “Dr. Zareen Roohi not appointed as advisor to King Charles”. According to this news, The British Pakistani woman said reports regarding her appointment are incorrect.
It is clear from Dfrac’s Fact-Check that the viral claim stating Dr. Zareen Roohi Ahmed was appointed as a special advisor by King Charles is completely misleading as she comes forward and dismissed this claim.
