Celebrities getting trolled on social media is normal and every now and then they had to face unnecessary crticism for their normal actions on the social media.
And if you belong to minority Muslim community in India then trolls become serious as they bring in your religion into it and hurl abuses. Same happened with former India pacer and current J&K cricket team mentor Irfan Pathan when he tried to suggest people don’t burst fire crackers.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked the citizens to come out and light candles, diyas or torch lights for nine minutes on Sunday night at 9 p.m. to show solidarity against the coronavirus outbreak. However some went ahead with something extra bursting crackers.
Irfan Pathan took to social media saying it was all good till people started bursting crackers and that hasn’t gone down well with some who have started abusing him.
Taking to Twitter, Irfan wrote: “It was so good untill ppl started bursting crackers #IndiaVsCorona (sic.)”
To this people started calling him names and even brought in his religious sentiments to pull him down.
On that Irfan Pathan had perfect reply for them. He posted another tweet with screen shots of the abuse he had received.
“We need fire trucks can you help @twitterindia, ” Pathan Tweeted.
Earlier former team India member Gautam Gambhir and Harbhajan Singh had also lashed out at those who burst crackers on Sunday evening.
