Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami has criticised social media users who have been trolling his wife because of her choice of clothes. The pacer posted a picture of his wife on Facebook and Twitter on Sunday, with the words “beautiful moments” where his wife can be seen wearing a sleeveless gown.
Sample this comment: “sharam karo sar ap ek muslim ho bibi ko parde me rakho aur kuch sikho amla ali aur bhi bahut saro sr”.
One another is “We hate you shami. .. apni aurat ki izzat ki nilami mat karo Bhai…” wrote Sabas Afreen commenting on the picture.
“Shame on you. As a Muslim, keep your wife in purdah [covered clothing]. Learn from others,” one user commented.
Shami, who is currently out of the Indian team after undergoing rehabilitation for a knee injury, could not have imagined that the photo would be subjected to such outrage.
Today, Shami took to twitter to shut down his haters and posted that his daughter and wife are his life and life partner and he knows what is to be done and what not. He went on to take a dig at the hatemongers stating we should look at ourselves to see how good we are.

Songwriter Javed Akhtar chimed in, tweeting: “The dress that Mrs Shami is wearing is extremely elegant and dignified. Anyone who has any problem with it is sick in his mind.”
