What does the term “un-Islamic” really mean? Doesn’t making sexist comments fall in the category?
All India’s strike bowler Mohammed Shami did was post happy family pictures with his kid and gorgeous wife Hasin Jahan. Instead of complementing his gesture, many Muslim extremists only noticed — what in their term called unethical — and criticised, or rather ‘trolled and abused’ his wife for wearing a “sleeveless” gown.

Some even went on call Shami “un-Islamic” just because the dress his wife had chosen was western attire.
On December 23, the Indian cricketer posted a picture with his wife and daughter on Facebook. Little did he know that this would offend the Muslim fanatics. Later, he was bombarded with 1500 comments, mostly regressive, though a few were in his support too.
As expected, Shami took to twitter to shut down his haters and went on saying what his wife wears or prefers doing — or anyone for that matter — is completely their personal matter, and it’s none of their business.
Many others, including former India player Mohammad Kaif, also came out in support of Shami.
The comments are really really Shameful.
Support Mohammed Shami fully.

@MdShami11 In solidarity with Shami's wife I change my dp to one of mine in younger days in a sleeveless. I don't wear now as I feel cold

Biggest problems India currently facing:
1. What would be ideal dress for Mohd Shami's wife;
2. What should Saif-Kareena name their kid…

When people start taking a dig at someone’s private life in a shameful manner, our celebs know how to give it back because let’s face it, before pointing at others, everyone should look at their inner-selves to see what good they are.
