India’s ace bowler, Mohammed Shami, on Sunday took to his Facebook and Twitter pages to extend New Year wishes. He did so by posting a photo with his wife, Hasin Jahan.
Shami wrote, ” Na sathi hai na hamara hai koi na kisi ke hum na hamara hai koi par apko dekh kar keh sakte hain ek pyarasa humsafar hai koi… Happy New Year.”
His message elicited overwhelming responses from his followers on both the social media platforms with many wishing the couple a long and successful marital life. But, there were also some, who thought the star cricketer had once again breached the teachings of Islam by posting his wife’s photo to extend New Year wishes.
Shami had recently found himself at the centre of a social media storm after he posted pictures with his wife and daughter, inviting some nasty remarks on his spouse’s dress.
He was lectured on morality by trolls because his wife was seen wearing a sleeveless gown in the photographs.
The cricketer had later slammed his critics with a social media post. He had said, ““Very good morning ?? Har kisi ko jindagi mai mukam ni milta, kuch kismat wale hi hote hai jinhe ye nasib hota hai.!.jalteee rahooooo… (Not everyone get what they desire, only a lucky few get it),” he wrote to his 40 thousand plus followers on Twitter.”
