Former Indian cricketer, Mohammad Kaif was at the receiving end of a backlash from hardliners on social media once again. The UP cricketer, who drew flak in the past for posting pictures of him playing chess and doing Surya Namaskar, faced the ire of the troll army this time for celebrating Christmas with his family.
On the eve of Christmas, Mohammad Kaif had posted on his official Facebook and Twitter accounts pictures of Christmas celebrations with his wife and children. “Merry Christmas! May there be peace and love,” read the cricketer’s post containing pictures.

No sooner did Kaif’s posts appear online than a section of net users started trolling him saying he should not be celebrating a festival that is considered haram (not legal) in the Islam.
Some warned Kaif against the wrath of Allah for celebrating the festival while some even went on to curse him to die.

Some people, though, came in the support of Kaif too and appreciated him saying such gestures were necessary to ensure communal harmony in the society.
Kaif bhai ek achha sandesh Dene ki koshish kar rage hai, aur hum jaise kuch log isko Hindu Muslim Bana rahe hai. Let's not spread between us. This country belongs to all of us, whether Hindu, Muslim or any other caste.— Bhupender (@bhuppi334) December 25, 2017
