Ace Indian pacer Mohammad Shami has done wonders. We cannot forget his spells in World Cup 2015 held in Australia and New Zealand, where India advanced to the semi-finals before getting knocked out by the Home Team Australia, which went on to win the world cup. He has bowled well after coming back from injury in the recently held test series as well.
Recently, he posted a picture with his wife on Facebook, which got criticism from many Muslims across the globe, particularly Indian Muslims. They even went on to question if he is really a Muslim. This was what he posted on FB.
Within minutes, he started receiving criticism from Muslims across the world; particularly Indian Muslims, questioning him, warning him and even asking him if he is a true Muslim.
Islami tareeke se rakho!
Parde mein rakho!
Are you Muslim?
Sharam aani chahiye!
Shobha nahi deta!
However, he received support from fellow cricketer Mohammad Kaif, who based the questioners and supported Shami. This is what Kaif said coming to strong support to Shami and slamming narrow-minded and radical thinking people who were criticising Shami.
The comments are really really Shameful.
Support Mohammed Shami fully.

This shows that some people in the society are still living in the past; while some are ready to accept the change that the world has seen recently.
