Mohd Shami news: 'Only targeting... a sign of hatred against Muslims', Owaisi came to the defense

Mohd Shami news: ‘Only targeting… a sign of hatred against Muslims’, Owaisi came to the defense- AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi has come to the rescue of Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami. Owaisi has said that Shami is being targeted on social media after yesterday’s match. This reflects hatred against Muslims. Owaisi demanded that the BJP government should criticize it. In the T20 World Cup match held on Sunday, the Indian team had to face a crushing defeat at the hands of Pakistan.

Owaisi said in a tweet, ‘Mohammed Shami is being targeted through social media for tomorrow’s match. This reflects bigotry and hatred against Muslims. In cricket, there is always defeat and victory. There are 11 players in the team but only one Muslim player has been targeted. Will the BJP government condemn it?

India lost by 10 wickets

In the match held on Sunday, Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets. After this, Indian cricket lovers started venting their anger on social media. Some of these people started trolling Mohammed Shami. Many cricketers, including Sehwag, have also come to Shami’s defense, but Owaisi, giving a political angle to the whole matter, has demanded the Modi government to criticize it.

Owaisi has been raising such matters in the past as well.

Owaisi described it as an example of ‘hatred against Muslims’ and ‘radicalism’ in the country. Owaisi has been tweeting on such issues in the past as well. A few days ago, Owaisi spoke in favor of IAS Iftekharuddin, who was surrounded in the case of conversion in UP. He had said that ‘the government has deliberately made the video viral because Iftekharuddin is a Muslim’. Owaisi had also alleged that “the Yogi government of UP is anti-Muslim and the opposition also becomes dumb in the matter of Muslims”.

Omar Abdullah also gave advice

Former Jammu and Kashmir CM Omar Abdullah also tweeted on the same issue, but he did not target the governments and expected Team India to defend their partner. He wrote, ‘Mohammed Shami was one of the 11 players who lost the match last night. He was not the only player on the field. Team India Your showing solidarity on the BLM (Black Lives Matter) issue has no meaning if you cannot stand by the fellow who is being trolled and humiliated horribly on social media. Before this match on Sunday, the Indian team had expressed its participation in a symbolic form by kneeling in the field against apartheid.

Sehwag encouraged

Former opener Virender Sehwag on Monday supported Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami on this issue. Sehwag tweeted, ‘The online attack on Mohammed Shami is shocking and we are with him. He is the champion and whoever wears the India cap has more India in his heart than any online crowd. I am with you Shami. Show the fire in the next match.
