If you thought that moral policing limits itself to streets, then you are wrong. Social media has become another platform where people think they have the authority to tell you how to live your life. Not so long ago, cricketer Mohammed Shami was thrashed for uploading a picture with his wife where she was wearing a gown.
And now, cricketer Irfan Pathan has become another target for trolls after he uploaded a picture with his wife.
Irfan Pathan tied the knot last year and he’s definitely enjoying the married life. The happy couple just uploaded a picture which had Irfan and his wife posing for the camera. As cute as the picture is, it got a lot of flak from social media.
If you are wondering why will such an adorable picture get any kind of bashing, I’ll let these comments answer your question.
Yes, you read that right. There are people telling Irfan how to ‘keep’ his wife covered.
And how unIslamic it is.
Nail polish, really?
Because, women = candies! Fu**ing ridiculous.
Here’s some more advice.
But fortunately, there were some people who supported Irfan and told him not to pay heed to these nonsensical comments.
One part of me really hopes that Irfan gives a fitting reply to all these trolls and shuts them up. But one part of me thinks that maybe the best way to deal with such people is to just ignore them and live your life peacefully.
Irfan, it’s a beautiful picture. Don’t think twice before sharing anything on social media, and convey this to your wife too (if she’s not reading this). There will always be people trying to pull you down, but then there will always be a part which will stand by you, no matter what.
