Mohammed Shami on Monday saw fans and followers making shrewd comments at a photograph posted on December 23 by the Indian cricket team pacer on Facebook.
Mohammed Shami stood battered by unsavoury criticism on social media for posting a picture of his wife in a sleeveless dress. Saying Shami’s wife was un-Islamic, people posting on social media demanded that Shami’s wife, Hasin Jahan, wear the traditional hijab that covers a woman from head to toe. Hasin Jahan is an ex-model from Kolkata.
Mohammed Shami, taken by surprise for the comments, took to Twitter and Facebook to defend his daughter and wife saying that he “knew what he was doing.”
One of Shami’s tweets said, “Very good morning Har kisi ko jindagi mai mukam ni milta, kuch kismat wale hi hote hai jinhe ye nasib hota hai.!.jalteee rahooooo…”
And another tweet read, “Ye dono meri zindage or life partner hai me acha trha janta hu kiya karna hai kiya nahi.hame apne andar dekhna chahiye ham kitna accha hai.”
The Indian pacer, known for his deadly reverse swing, went on to take a dig at the online trolls saying people who made unacceptable remarks should first “look within.”
Mohammed Shami is currently undergoing rehabilitation for right knee soreness after missing the last two Tests against England.
