Ever since Virat Kohli the captain of the Indian Cricket team has made a statement defending Mohammad Shami creating a lot of stir on social media platforms, people have been passing comments of various tastes. Along with this people have been bashing the captain for India’s two straight losses in the World Cup. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, on Tuesday, extended support to Kohli, who has been facing an online attack, and urged him to forgive those trolling him as they are “filled with hate because nobody gives them any love”.
The Congress leader wrote in a tweet “Dear Virat, These people are filled with hate because nobody gives them any love. Forgive them. Protect the team.”
India lost by eight wickets to New Zealand in Dubai on Sunday night, jeopardising their chances of making to the semifinals. Ahead of the match, a livid Kohli had hit back at “spineless trolls” who attacked Shami’s religion after the team lost to Pakistan in its inaugural T20 World Cup game and said targeting people for their faith is “the most pathetic thing” to do
