Mohammed Shami becomes latest victim of online trolling, attacked for posting wife's pictures without hijab

Kolkata: India pacer Mohammed Shami has once again become a victim of social media trolling after he posted pictures of his wife during their daughter's second birthday celebrations.

The cricketer was trolled as many felt that his wife Hasin Jahan committed a "sin" by not wearing a hijab during the birthday celebrations.

However, the fast bowler's fans came out in strong support of him.

The trolling on social network came a day after Jadavpur police arrested three youths for allegedly attacking Shami late on 22 July when he was returning home to Katju Nagar, behind South City Mall.

Police have beefed up security in the area.

"Police patrol and officer of anti-rowdy section have been asked to patrol the area and the road in front of his apartment to prevent any untoward incident," an officer at the Jadavpur Police Station told PTI.

This was not the first time that Shami found himself at the receiving end of social media beamers for his wife's choice of clothes. He faced similar trolling during Christmas celebrations last year.

At that time, Shami uploaded some family pictures of his wife and daughter in western outfits.

Another India cricketer Irfan Pathan also faced a similar social media ire after he posted an "un-Islamic" photograph with his wife wearing nail polish.
