The post did invite trouble for Pathan as fans from across the globe slammed Irfan and his wife for posting a picture which was against Islam.

Here are some of the reactions:

Irfan tied nuptial knots with Safa Baig at Haram Shareef, in the holy city of Mecca in February 2016.

The duo had been dating for two years before they decided to take their relationship to the next level.

There were no grand celebrations as the Pathan family conducted a low-key affair.

There were no high-profile guests at the function with only family members of the couple present during the 'nikaah'.

A dinner party was held by the Pathan family at a luxury hotel at Al-Hindaweeyah on Thursday night.
