New Delhi: Mohammad Shami's wife on Wednesday alleged that the India cricketer is guilty of domestic violence, that he has been torturing her and that 'he is a big flirt.' Hasin Jahan charged the 27-year-old cricketer for never treating him as his wife since they got married in 2014.
Speaking to reporters, Jahan said that she has endured domestic violence for which she will now take legal action. "I have done everything he (Shami) wanted me to do. He has tortured me and has not treated me like his wife. He is a big flirt," she said. "I am not going to divorce him till my last breath and have all the evidence, will soon drag him to the court." Earlier in the day, a Facebook post detailed that Shami had even threatened to kill Jahan, although the authenticity of the social media account could not be ascertained. The post nonetheless went on to say that the cricketer's mother and brother used to abuse Jahan, and that Shami had physical relations with other women. Snapshots of the said women were also attached with the post.
Shami, who had made his international debut in an ODI against Pakistan in 2013, reacted sharply and rubbished the charges as a bid to ruin his cricketing career. He took to social media, although before Jahan came out in person to level the charges, and said that the reports related to his personal life are false.
I'm Mohammad Shami.
Ye jitna bhi news hamara personal life ke bare may chal raha hai, ye sab sarasar jhut hai, ye koi bahut bada humare khilap sajish hai or ye mujhe Badnam karne or mera game kharab karne ka kosis ki ja rahi hai.

The cricketer and his wife have previously posted several selfies together on Twitter and often, Shami has been blasted by Muslim hardliners for his wife's makeup and/or dressing sense. Each time, Shami has returned fire while defending his wife.
