On Monday, Cricketer Irfan Pathan has posted his photo with a Rakhi on the wrist, wishing his fans ‘Happy Rakshabandhan’ has created a pool of trolls over him.
He is no stranger of being trolled and so this was not the first time. Recently he was trolled on religious grounds for posting a picture with his wife Safa Banj which was named as un-Islamic because she was wearing nail paint and was not covering her arms.
At that time Comments ranged from how Irfan should have asked Safa to cover her face as it is his duty to do the same as a Muslim and as a Pathan.
And this time, when he took Facebook for wishing his fans Rakshabandhan, they lashed out Irfan for celebrating ‘Hindu festival’ being a Muslim.
But some of them applauded it too.
However, the cricketer chose Instagram to hit back to the trolls and conveyed that people should stop this ‘nonsense’.
“Using foul language. Talking each other rudely on basis of religion. It shows nothing but ur own learning which some ppl have gathered in their mind over the years.stop this nonsense of putting each other down,” wrote Irfan.
