Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Gandhi condemn religious targeting of MD Shami

Former Cricket Legend Sachin Tendulkar and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi have come out in support of team India pacer Mohammed Shami and condemned the religious targeting against him. Shami has been targeted by trolls with hateful messages all over social media.

Sachin Tendulkar backed Shami saying, “When we support #TeamIndia, we support every person who represents Team India. Mohammad Shami is a committed, world-class bowler. He had an off day like any other sportsperson can have. I stand behind Shami & Team India.”

Meanwhile Rahul Gandhi posted in support of Shami saying, “Mohammad Shami we are all with you. These people are filled with hate because nobody gives them any love. Forgive them.”

After Pakistan beat India by 10 wickets in the ICC T20 World Cup opener for both teams on Sunday, Shami was harassed on social media.

Several trolls even called him a Pakistani agent, and abused his family too. They also openly gave threats to the Indian speedster Mohammad Shami.

Apart from Tendulkar, several other former cricketers also backed Shami, including former pacer Venkatesh Prasad, former spinner Harbhajan Singh, current leg-spinner Yuzvendra chahal and former opener Virendra Sehwag.
