Kolkata: In what can be taken as a rebuttal to the social media storm that took centre stage after Mohammed Shami posted a picture with his wife on Twitter a few days ago, the India pacer on Sunday posted another similar photo wishing his fans a happy New Year.
"Na Sathi Hai, Na Hamara Hai Koi, Na Kisi Ke Hum Na Hamara Hai Koi, Par Apko Dekh Kar, Keh Sakte Hain Ek Pyarasa Humsafar Hai Koi Happy New Year (Neither I have any companion, nor anyone is mine nor I belong to anyone. But seeing you, I can say there is one beautiful companion with me. Happy New Year)," Shami's tweet read.
Shami was attacked by a section of social media users over a photo featuring him with his wife Hasin Jahan and his daughter. He was then trolled, with some even abusing him for his wife's sleeveless outfit.
Shami was reminded of his religion, with some even asking why Hasin Jahan was not wearing a hijab.
