Former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan recently lashed out at a Twitter user after the latter compared him with Pakistan terrorist Hafiz Saeed. The 35-year-old took to his social media handle and shared a screenshot of the Twitter user’s comment on one of the news articles written on him.


Bashing the user, the left-hander tweeted: “This is the mentality of certain people. Where have we reached? #shame #disgusted.”

In the meantime, Bollywood actress Richa Chaddha reckoned that the tweet came from a ‘fake account’. She said that the tweet was made for the motive of earning money.


“It’s fake account. Bot. Not a real person,” her tweet read.

“Yes. Someone is making two rupees per abusive tweet. In this economy, they are earning like this,” Richa further wrote.

Jwala Gutta, the retired Indian badminton player, also asked Irfan not to pay heed to such comments. She wrote, “Pls don’t pay attention to these losers… moreover it could be fake account!!”


While it is understood that it was a troll account from which the comment was made, the insensitivity of people making such remarks is genuinely baffling.

Not true that Greg Chappell spoiled my career: Irfan Pathan

In the news report, Pathan had spoken about the unfair criticism that Chappell gets for ‘ruining his career’. The former India all-rounder had explained how it wasn’t even the Australian coach that made him bat at No. 3 during an ODI against Sri Lanka in 2005 – a move that many believe was the reason behind Irfan’s decline at the international level.
