Maybe he was confused about the kind of mask to wear! And he was only trying to protect people 🥺

This below doesn't seem like something to be arrested over!
By the way when the police interrogated him last night, his statement in self defence was: “I was wearing the mask as part of the SOPs to protect myself from the Corona Virus” https://t.co/ZlXaM7N6uO

However, not everyone was in the mood to joke. Some thought that the police went a little too far if they arrested someone just for wearing a mask on NYE while some thought there are bigger issues to focus on event nights like NYE than a young man who was probably having fun with the mask. Some Twitter users also mocked the Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and labelled the incident as the example of "Naya Pakistan".
