What abuse? Which Indian cricketer doesn't get abused? Once again I ask, does a muslim cricketer in India get a pass from abuse? What's the big deal if Shami gets abused for his religion from a few on the fringe when Hindus have grown up in this country watching muslims celebrate Pakistan win over India?

 

Some Muslims celebrating a Pakistani win by bursting crackers and sloganeering against India is symptomatic of a deeper malaise. A mindset of animosity towards Hindus and India as a concept. Why that mindset has come to be, needs a discussion at a main stream level and not sugarcoating it as harmless stuff/ kids bursting crackers etc. But this has nothing to do with Shami getting abused. There is no cause effect relation here.

 

As far as abuse towards Shami is concerned, in its nature it wasn't just the regular abuse that a cricketer faces by faceless fans. It was directed at Shami the Muslim cricketer who failed against Pakistan and not just against Shami the cricketer. 

If you ask me, online abuse isn't a big deal. I don't think Shami would be too bothered.

That said, I don't see anything wrong in what Kohli said either. He stood up for a team mate. Would you rather he didn't? 

 

There are a dozen things wrong with Kohli the captain. This statement isn't one of them.

Assuming a lot here. Online anonymous trolls can be tracked. A significant number came from Oakistani based trolls maybe ISPR IT cell job to  set a narrative for all Indians to call for shame

The links you share mention tweets ( which seem sarcastic) by Pakistanis. The abuse was on Instagram. @ash had shared that pic earlier on the thread.
