On Sunday, Team India’s star pacer Mohammed Shami shared a family photograph with his wife Hasin Jahan and their daughter.
Soon, an image of Hasin Jahan dressed in a sleeveless outfit attracted the ire of bigoted users who feel that somehow they have the right to decide what a woman should or shouldn’t wear. The comments would make your skin crawl.
Here are few of those comments:
Bhai me a bhat aap se yehi kahunga aap apne bibi ko Islami tarike par rakho sami bhai allah ke liye
(I will tell you one thing brother, keep your wife under Islamic traditions for Allah)
Apki wife ka itan bada gala pehni hain, aapko sharam nahin ayi,
(You wife is wearing such a revealing dress, aren’t you ashamed?)
Sami tum muslim ho achhi tarah jante ho ki orot ko kaise rakha jata hai yah sobha nahi deta
(You are a Muslim and you know very well that how women should be kept. This kind of dressing won’t do)
Shami was reminded of his religion, with some even asking why Hasin Jahan was not wearing a hijab.
Shami was not just trolled but also abused and criticised for uploading an image with his wife.
The Indian speedster is not the first victim of such hate-mongering. And he won’t be the last either. Wife of Dinesh Karthik- Dipika Pallikal, wife of Shoaib Malik- Sania Mirza, to name a few, even have dedicated pages for the sole purpose of their objectification and shaming.
Its really a shameful act by the fanatics!
