After Mohammed Shami, Irfan Pathan criticized for posting wife’s photo

Last week, the left-handed bowler was seen singing romantic songs dedicated to his wife Safa Baig.On Monday, the Indian all-rounder cricketer, who is Muslim, posted a picture with his wife Safa Baig on Facebook which created internet frenzy.All rounder Irfan Pathan, who is making every effort possible to make a comeback into the Indian team, is the latest cricketer to land in trouble for posting a photograph with his wife which has been tagged “unIslamic”.The cricketer Irfan Pathan has mainly faced a backlash from religious leaders, claiming what he did was against Islamic law.”A woman can show her face only to her husband and in cases involving law related things such as aadhaar or pan card, only then can she show her face”, Maulana Sajid Rashidi was quoted as saying by news agency ANI. Priyanka Chopra was slammed on social media when she met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Berlin because her “legs”, below the knees were visible. On Sunday, he uploaded a selfie for the first time with her from his official Facebook account with the caption, “This girl is trouble??” Irfan also received advice from people, telling him to ask his wife to cover her face and arms and also for allowing her to wear nail polish which, according to some people, was against Islam. As per him if a nail-polish is applied, one can’t read namaz and without reading namaz what kind of Muslim are they.Maulan Rashidi said that it was shameful on part of Irfan Pathan to post her wife’s photograph on social media especially because he comes from a very religious family.
