New Delhi: India cricketer Mohammad Kaif once again became a subject of troll on social media after he shared a picture of him and his son playing chess on Facebook.
Kaif, regarded as one of the most committed cricketers India has ever produced, wrote "Shatranj Ke Khilaadi" in his post and added a cute father-son photo.
But moments later, the post was flooded with negative reactions, with the majority of those slamming the cricketer for committing a 'sin'.
With no option left, Kaif asked the trollers, if breathing is also a 'haram'.
Thekeedar ji se poochiye, is breathing haraam or not. Kamaal hai yaar. https://t.co/RTOV15hxEc

Earlier, he was trolled for doing a Surya Namaskar.

He is not the only player to have face such issues. Fellow cricketers Mohammad Shami and Irfan Pathan have often been targeted by religious bigots, for reasons they can only understand.
