    NO.. Wikipedia is an Encyclopedia of all the Things. It does not comes under the Specific Category. But Wikipedia have a Biographies of notable persons. But they have some restrictions about biographies,

    Wikipedia should have a biography of a living person only if independent, reliable sources have published biographies of that person before. Moreover, the Wikipedia article should be primarily based on this independent biographical coverage.

    As per Wikipedia

    Editors must take particular care when adding information about living persons to any Wikipedia page. Such material requires a high degree of sensitivity, and must adhere strictly to all applicable laws in the United States, to this policy, and to Wikipedia’s three core content policies:

    • Neutral point of view (NPOV)
    • Verifiability (V)
    • No original research (NOR)
