Don’t fall in love over Facebook: Ansari

 Mumbai, Dec 21: Software engineer Hamid Nihal Ansari’s advice to youth is simple: Don’t fall in love over Facebook.

          Having spent almost six years in a Pakistani jail, He should know it better.

It was on Facebook that he fell in love with a girl from Pakistan, went there to prevent her ‘forced’ marriage and before he could meet her, was arrested and jailed.

          “Never hide anything from your parents. Only your parents stand by your side in testing times. And never resort to any illegal means to go to any place,” Ansari said.

          His tale is a lesson for several youngsters, who have experienced a new wave of freedom with the world of internet and social media.

          Ansari was arrested in Pakistan in 2012 for allegedly entering that country from Afghanistan reportedly to meet a woman he had befriended online. Pakistan slapped espionage charges against him. He was repatriated on Tuesday and handed over to India at the Wagah-Attari border.
