It began after India lost the match with Pakistan in ICC T20 World Cup. Indian pacer Mohammed Shami was trolled for his bowling. Kohli came out in of Shami and then a Twitter account named @Criccrazyygirl gave rape threats to Virat and Anushka Sharma’s daughter Vamika. Shami was trolled for his religion during the loss of India Pak match. Kohli wrote on social media regarding the target of religion on Shami that targeting someone’s religion is “the most pathetic thing” to do.
“This is the lowest level of human form, attacking someone over religion is the most pathetic thing human being can do. “Never thought of discriminating on basis of religion. That is a very sacred thing. Our brotherhood and friendship can’t be shaken… and these things can’t infiltrate. I give credit to people who understand us,” he added. Shami was called a traitor and some people on social media asked to throw him out of the team.
The Delhi Council for Women (DCW) had taken a suo motu congnisance of the incident, asking Delhi Police to file an FIR.
