The star bowler of Indian cricket team, Mohammed Shami, was recently attacked by social media trollers on micro-blogging site Twitter after he posted a New Year Tweet in which he attached a photograph of Shiva Linga.

“As the New Year renews all the happiness and good tidings, hope the joyful spirit keeps glowing in your heart forever! Happy New Year!”2018 to you and family’s,” Indian pacer Mohammed Shami wrote on Twitter.

After his Tweet, Shami was slammed by few twitter users and his New Year Tweet was described as ‘un-Islamic.’

Shami deleted the Tweet after people started to backlash him on social media.








However, this is not the first time when he is being targeted by people on social sites. Last year, he was trolled because he posted a photograph of his daughter on her second birthday celebration and people started telling him that his wife had committed a sin just because she was not wearing hijab in the photograph.
