The boy and his mother also spoke to a Pakistani news channel expressing his delight and grateful for all the positive vibe.
It all started when his father Musa Ali Zeeshan took to Twitter to ask for people’s support asking what people think about him in glasses. “This is my son Musa, from last few days he is very upset because some of his school mates said; you look worst in glasses, he’s hesitant to wear glasses anymore. I told him let’s ask the world. Doesn’t he looks great in glasses too?” he asked.
