England cricketers rally behind Moeen Ali after Bangladeshi hatemonger posts Islamophobic tweet targeting Chennai Super Kings player

England cricketers have rallied behind their teammate Moeen Ali after a known Bangladeshi hatemonger, Taslima Nasreen, posted an Islamophobic tweet targeting the Chennai Super Kings player.

Known for her hatemongering on social media, Nasreen tweeted, “If Moeen Ali were not stuck with cricket, he would have gone to Syria to join ISIS.” The tweet by disgraced Bangladeshi hatemonger evoked widespread angry reactions with top England cricketers such as Jofra Archer and Sam Billings registering their outrage.

Jofra Archer wrote, “Are you okay ? I don’t think you’re okay.”

Reacting to Nasreen’s clarification that her tweet on Ali was in sarcasm, Archer wrote, “Sarcastic ? No one is laughing , not even yourself , the least you can do is delete the tweet.” Another teammate of Ali, Sam Billings, tweeted, “Please everyone report this account.”

Another English cricketer Saqib Mahmood tweeted, “Can’t believe this. Disgusting tweet. Disgusting individual.”

Here’s how journalists and activists reacted to Nasreen’s disgusting tweet.
