India’s star pacer Mohammed Shami had to endure a vicious social media attack from his followers after he posted a family photograph with wife Hasin Jahan and their daughter on Sunday.
Soon after Shami posted a photo on his Facebook page, where his wife can be seen wearing a sleeveless gown, religious fanatics started hurling abuse in the comments section, demanding that his wife, being a Muslim, cover herself and wear a hijab.
Though many religious fanatics, joined in to troll Shami over the issue, some of them quickly came to his defence. Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif, came in support of Shami and tweeted that the comments were ‘really really Shameful’.
One of the comments read: “Sharm aani chahie shami, marna h ek din ye mat bhulo bibiyo ko kaise rakha jaye apne sathi cricker pathan brothar se sikho.” (“Shami, you should be ashamed. Don’t forget, you will die one day. You must learn from your fellow cricketers, Pathan brothers, that how one should treat their wives.”)
