Mohd Shami targeted by Islamists for posting Dussehra greetings

Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami became the target of radical Islamists who were angered by his post wishing Dussehra. They not only schooled Shami on Islam but also demanded a fatwa against him. Some of the Islamists opined that Shami was sending out wishes only to secure a spot in the Indian team during the upcoming T20 world cup tournament.

On the occasion of Dussehra, Shami tweeted his wishes saying he prayed to Prabhu Ram for prosperity, success, and happiness. His tweet was accompanied by a picture of Prabhu Sri Ram slaying Ravan.


Scolding him for going against his religion, one of the users tweeted “Are you a Muslim”? “Team nahi lenge Bhai (They’ll still not take you in the team)”, said another Twitterati named Ibn-e-Ahmed. While Aman Mirza wanted Allah to guide the cricketer who had lost his mind according to the former.

It is worth mentioning that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is looking for a replacement for pacer Jasprit Bumrah who has been ruled out of the world cup due to injury.

“Shami is obviously someone who’s on standby. Unfortunately for us, he couldn’t play in this series. It would’ve been ideal from that perspective, but he’s in the National Cricket Academy at the moment. We’ve to get reports as to how he’s recovering, and what’s his status after 14-15 days of COVID, and we’ll take a call. Once I get a report on how he’s feeling, then obviously we can really take a call on how to move forward on it”, head coach Rahul Dravid was quoted as saying.

“Shame on you. Do you believe in Lord Ram”?, questioned Mehak Fatima while adding that no Hindu player extended greetings during Islamic festivities. She opined that even Christians and Jews don’t wish Muslims among whom such degeneracy is seen.

Similar hate was reserved for Radio Mirchi’s Hinduphobic RJ Sayema who tweeted “May we always carry the fire within, to fight with evils, both inside and outside. Happy Dussehra”. Some even called her ignorant.

Islamists have a nasty habit of targeting those who don’t conform to their norms. Earlier too Mohammad Shami and his daughter were viciously trolled for celebrating Saraswati pooja. In 2020, cricketer Mohammad Shami’s little daughter Aaira Shami participated in the vandana of Maa Saraswati on the day of Saraswati pooja and the doting father shared an adorable picture of hers.

The adorable picture of Mohammad Shami’s daughter didn’t sit well with such fundamentalist Muslims and within moments, crossing all limits, they came out cursing the father-daughter duo. Truth is, the radical, kattar followers of Islam who demand their faith and practices be respected by one and all are sternly against returning the favour to others when it’s time for them to prove their ‘secularism’.

They want Hindus, Sikhs, and Christians to respect their Islamic identity and be with them in their rituals. This upholds the Constitution, they say. But during Diwali, they want to ignore Baba Saheb Ambedkar and his Constitution and go with Zakir Naik who forbids them from wishing a fellow Hindu citizen “Happy Diwali” lest it affronts the principles of Islam.

Varun Dhawan observing Roza is the victory of Islam for them, while Md. Shami’s daughter finding joy in Saraswati Pooja or the cricketer extending Dussehra’s wishes is a threat. ‘Only take – No Give’ is the sole mantra of radicalized Islamists and they keep exposing their ugliness time and again.

  1. Muslim of Saudi Arabia could not protest the destruction of those holy shrines (as cited above) perhaps because of iron-hand rulings of the Saudi kingdom where anybody going against the king will end up with beheading. Here, in India our Muslim citizens enjoy far greater degrees of freedom: freedom of speech, freedom of movement, freedom to following/practising a religion and freedom of work. In Saudi Arabia, no demonstration is allowed. Protest against the king is held as a serious crime meted with capital punishment: DEATH by beheading. So the Arabians dared to raise a voice of protest when their holy shrines related Prophet Mohammed were dismantled under the order of Saudi King.

  2. “When Saudi Arab destroyed holy shrines associated with the Prophet Mohammad and replaced with commercial complexes, Muslim leaders in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, protested. Why? are Muslims in Kanpur more Islamic than Muslims in Saudi Arabia ?”
    “P. Deivamuthu” (2006.)

  3. Truly religiously minded people are open-hearted, free from superstition giving equal weightage to all religions. This is because TRUTH is the ultimate goal of of every religion. So segregating and defaming a person on the basis of respeting other religion is not the right act. Everybody has absolute right to follow any religion he or she may like, That being said, he/she has every right to appraise the values of other religions. And that’s not a crime.
