One of India’s finest bowlers, Irfan Pathan found himself at the receiving end of bouncers by trolls recently when he uploaded a pic of him and his wife on Twitter.
Reason being that some people, unable to mind their own business, found the picture of his wife too ‘Un-Islamic’.

There were also some who came up with this amazing theory that the girl in the pic wasn’t his wife, but his fan.

However, Irfan decided to shut all such people with just one simple message.
A message of love.
And the Twitterati agreed.
