Mohammed Shami on Monday defended his daughter and wife after a photograph posted on December 23 by the Indian cricket team pacer in Facebook led to a slew of unsavoury comments from his followers.
Mohammed Shami faced shocking criticism on social media for posting a picture of his wife in a sleeveless dress. Saying Shami’s wife was un-Islamic, people posting on social media demanded that Shami’s wife, Hasin Jahan, wear the traditional hijab that covers a woman from head to toe. Hasin Jahan is an ex-model from Kolkata.
Mohammed Shami, taken by surprise for the comments, took to Twitter and Facebook to say that he “knew what he was doing.”

“My wife and daughter are my life partners and I know what is to be done and what not,” Mohammed Shami wrote.
The Indian pacer, known for his deadly reverse swing, went on to take a dig at the online trolls saying people who made unacceptable remarks should first “look within.”
Shami has found support from many quarters, including the fiesty badminton star, Jwala Gutta.
