SRINAGAR, OCT 25: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and Jammu Kashmir National Conference (JKNC) leader Omar Abdullah on Monday slammed team India for not standing up for their teammate Mohammed Shami, who was abused and trolled on social media after India suffered a defeat against Pakistan in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

“Mohammed Shami was one of 11 players who lost last night, he was not the only player on the field. Team India your BLM knee taking counts for nothing if you cannot stand up for your teammate who is being horribly abused and trolled on social media,” Abdullah tweeted.

As soon as India was defeated by Pakistan on Sunday, fans took to Instagram and Twitter to pass derogatory statements on Mohammed Shami. Soon several netizens came out in support of Shami and even urged captain Virat Kohli to support his teammate. The debate on social media continued the next day with politicians, some who only worsened it, and other known personalities joining the debate. (PTK)
