Social media users made fun of him while a few sympathised with him. One said, ‘Video of a Pakistani man begging on an international flight circulating on whatsapp. Not sure why people are laughing at it. The man is obviously either very desperate in life or suffering some mental illness.”
It was earlier claimed that the man belonged to Pakistan. But a Twitter user Danyal Gilani clarified it. He said, ‘This video is made onboard a Doha-Shiraz flight. The so-called beggar, who is an Iranian deportee, speaking Farsi $ the lady making the video is also speaking Farsi. The old man was deportee without any money so he asking passengers in the plane to help him out.”
Not true. This video is made onboard a Doha-Shiraz flight. The so-called beggar, who is an Iranian deportee, speaking Farsi & the lady making the video is also speaking in Farsi. The old man was deported without any money so he was asking passengers in the plane to help him out.

It is still unclear whether his claims is right or not.
